Looking for an older quote from Gillian Crampton-Smith

I came across this quote in 1998 or so, from Gillian Crampton-Smith, then of RCA. I used it in a magazine, Turn Signals, that I was working on at the time, but don't have that particular issue any longer, and I can't remember the quote.

It had something to do with creativity in design (I think) and being prompted by "sand in the emollient flow" - I most definitely remember the use of "emollient."

My Google-fu has totally failed me; I've scanned my hard drive, etc. I'm going to reach out to IUAV but my hopes are low.

Supporting material for the importance of UX/UI/Visual Design disciplines/departments in consumer electronics/software companies?

I'm searching for any solid information about the importance of UX/UI/Visual
Design disciplines.
I'm especially interested in information about:
• The ROI it generates (I think Cooper and Nielsen referred to this kind of

Core77 equivalent for interaction design?

In the industrial design world, http://www.core77.com/ is the 800-lb gorilla of industry news, information and cool stuff. In interaction design, it's obviously the IxDA list, but its not quite the same since it's user-generated content, versus more of a news bureau approach.
