Do you actually possess "design" skills

Hi,

I've recently encountered many Interaction Designers who call themselves "designers" yet have no drawing, photographic, layout or any artistic skills whatsoever. How is this even possible? Maybe the term "organizer" or " choreographer" should be more appropriate?

Re: [IxDA] Why is Drupal is a Good Choice for a Community Website?

Finding the right content management system is always a difficult challenge. None of them are perfect. Finding a decent open source CMS can be even more challenging because they're being produced voluntarily by people whose main enjoyment is programming, not user experience. I've been working with Plone for over a year now and I can't image Drupal being any worse. And since IxDA has essentially no budget, open source is the natural choice. So while Drupal may not be perfect, is there a better open source solution? I doubt it.

In Need of Useful Resources

Hello,

This website is pretty great! I have recently become very interested in interactive design. I am interested in the way people use technology and the internet. 

I am studying Information Science and Technology in school, and that's about as close a degree as I could get. There is a Graphic Design program, but that is more on the actual Photoshop use etc, and would have taken me too long to complete anyways.

Incentives to get users to log in and personalize?

I'm working on a re-design of my company's online support community. In our re-design, we plan to offer many more features and customization/personalization options-- but users will need to be logged in to take advantage of them (e.g., suggestions of content and local community connections based on preferences, profiles and locations, ability to customize content and view, etc).

Lexus ad, another mention of design and usability

I know people have already discussed the Ford designer TV commercial
here, so I thought I would note a related ad...maybe it's a trend...is
design becoming more of a differentiator with the economy the way it
is?
