Re: Designer mobility to management (was ixd curriculum)

Hi Prady,

Interesting post. I wonder whether a correlation between variables is being mistaken for a causal relationship between them?

For the sake of discussion, let's take as true your perception about the negative correlation between design education and movement into management. A design education background is not likely a cause for comparatively low rates of migration into management (not likely to "handicap" one).

interaction designer for help on a range of projects.

We are specifically looking for designers with a Graphic Design or
Interactive Design degree, or equivalent work experience. You must be

foundation classes/topics for IxD education

Whether formal or informal education is an important part of anyone
pursuing a career, especially one like interaction design that has so many
elements to it. In pursuing my own formal education I came across a book
called "The Elements of Design" by Gail Greet Hannah. The book is part
chronicle and part instructional text for anyone interested in abstract
3-D design, which is a primary component of Industrial Design. The book
outlines 6 core attributes of any 3-D design solution and calls these the
foundation courses.

Validity of Hit Counts

One of the organizations I volunteer for get "hit counts" from Go Daddy
for its website (www.rutlandhistory.com <http://www.rutlandhistory.com/>

We are getting about 20,000 hits a month.

How many of these hits can I believe to be searchers, rather than
spiders, etc?

Is there any way to tell?

Thanks for the help!

What is the Best Practice for Usability Testing aRegistration Process.

Hi Paul,

You have different scenarios, or you have different designs? I'm not
sure how you would test for validity of a scenario with usability
testing -- in that case it sounds like you'd want to do contextual work
to see if you find your scenarios 'in the wild.' But if what you really
mean is that you have three slightly different designs, then you're
right, you shouldn't test all three designs with the same individual.
What this means, of course, is tripling the number of tests you need to
do. For that reason, I probably wouldn't take the time to test all
