Joel Spolsky claims the 'Program Manager' role does UI design... ????

This post and the reactions on the list demonstrate very clearly the need

In the blog article, I questioned whether we are asking the right question
in search engines and if not how can computer scientists and interaction
designers/web developers improve the user experience and address the issues
on searching for the right information online using natural language.

Even our future president (G-d! I'd love to be able to aggregate--and I bet
there is a tool to do it--all those tweets that start, "When Obama is
President ...") is on Twitter.


The article is about how Twitter will go mainstream as we move generationaly
away from email and towards SMS.
