Wireframe Tools (Canvas). Was: How to Get Into ... Best Job Title

Just a side comment before we get back to our currently scheduled heated
discussion (or is it a flamefest now?).

IA Summit informal dinner update

Just wanted to send an update to those of you who will be attending the
IA Summit informal dinner, as I know most of us will be traveling over
the next couple of days.

One of the attendees, thank you Richard, made a brilliant suggestion -
meet somewhere before the dinner. Since most of us will be at the
conference before hand, we can meet in the hotel lobby of the
conference. We'll meet there at 7:10pm. Otherwise, see you at Manuel's.

So far we have a group of 25 people.

Managing Change (Was: Iterative Change Manageme nt / Patriarchs of the Design Family)

I apologise for provoking any infuriation. It is merely what I perceive to
be reality.
However, surely global market forces are creating the environment within
which we can design and create. The global adoption of the design of the
automobile is a good example of this?

What to call The User?

We prefer the terms "person" or "customer" when referring to people who use our software in general, but I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for referring to them specifically?

For example, let's say you're offering two sets of information to customers, one set each for new and existing users.

Universities for HCI


Can you please suggest some Universities in US or UK which would be better to study Human Computer Interaction from the start or the universites which does not requires any prior experience to do a masters in HCI.

Designing for devices like an ATM, cable top box, etc?

Right now I work for a consulting company designing (ux, visual, front-end markup) e-commerce sites, custom applications, etc. I like what I do, but often think what I really want to be doing is designing on a larger scale. I would love to re-design an ATM interaction, or the on-screen cable guide you use every day.

My question is, how do you start to make this transition? I am young, self taught, and have thought on and off about going to graduate school for HCI. However, I'm not sure that is the right direction for the goals that I have. 

Any thoughts?
