IXDA communities looking for space (was 2007 IA Summit Redux in New York City, July 19th)

"Other communities like SF, Silicon Valley, Stockholm, Portland, etc.
are always looking for good space, so don't be shy if you live there
and got space, "

Please keep smaller areas, like Pittsburgh, in mind too.

At a crossroads

I'm at a point in my life where I know I want to do ux design after doing web design for so long an then reading about usability testing etc 6 years ago. But my issue is I'm tired of working for orgs who say they care about their customer but don't do testing to even know what their customers want from them. So, do you guys know of places in Pittsburgh that focus on hcd and value it for themselves and their clients? I'm kind of fed up with working for people who don't get it.

Career tips for a high-schooler

List friends,

A high-school sophomore with an interest in a software design career will be
job-shadowing me Friday as part of a career day assignment. Any tips I

welcomed. I'm especially curious to hear from designers or design students

for you. Thank you on behalf of my visitor,

Must we be Leonardo da Vinci?

Yes! We most be the best designer of our generation, as well as the best engineer and scientist!

At least this is a reasonable conclusion you could make by following all of the heated arguments in the threads:
* "Design" in Interaction Design?
* The mighty UX guru has spoken - Discuss!!

We are in the midst of creating a new field. If we define this field as GraphicDesign + Computer Engineering + Usability Evaluations + UserResearch = Interaction Designer. Then no interaction designers would ever exist.

Cognitive load question

I want to make sure I'm understanding cognitive load correctly, and I'm
hoping someone here can verify whether or not I'm on the right track.

Here's my understanding:

The elements that make up an interface all contribute to the cognitive load
users must wade through when using an application for the first time, and
any time something in the application changes (eg: the addition of a new
feature that takes a prominent position in the interface).
