Hiring woes, searching for the best

This might be just a NYC thing ... but I think I'm seeing signs elsewhere
Is it my imagination or is it getting really hard to get top-tier talent to
work in-house?

It just seems to me that everyone (almost everyone) is moving to create
their own consultancy. I can't think of a single "guru" in the field who is

Crafting a user research e-mail... what to say?

Hey all,

I've pushed hard enough to be able to reach out to some users of our web
sites. We can blast out an e-mail to the students to grab user interview
candidates. I need to write the e-mail, but I wanted to first ask if anyone
had anything like this laying around I could use as a reference. Also, any
best practices?

In general, it might be good for folks to review the list guidelines.

Specifically, Ils like to remind everyone that using subject lines that are

Recently someone posted without using a subject line.
