If so, what's the solution? Mass list counseling? That's a lot of billable hours for someone :-)

And do you think this is truly a 100% either/or issue -- that there's no possibility a "design problem" approach might result in at least some mitigating of the situation?

Digital patina

Had a look at this Flickr set today:
http://www.flickr.com/groups/desire_paths [*]
It shows examples of when humans have eschewed the predefined path to take a
shortcut instead. Really nice visualisation of the path of least resistance.

How have you observed this happening online?

Courses for Usability Experience Specialist

Having had interest in product development and ergonomics for many years,  I'm in the process of moving away from graphic design to learn more about becoming a Usability Specialist. Can this be achieved by taking some courses or would I have to go back to school for a  few more years? I'm based in NYC btw.

Do you have a mental protocol that you follow to judge the quality of a design?

When you view a digital product or service do you have a mental
protocol that you follow to judge the quality of the design? Is this
a conscious act? Is it something you've developed over time? Do you
actively seek to improve your judgemental process?

Class (was "Are interaction designers an elite class?")

I didn't see this thread until today, which is a strange coincidence because
I've been blogging a lot about class lately.
