Tim Wong from frog design articulates what it meansto be an designer

Dave,

Are you referring to this bit: "How good of a designer we are [..] is directly related to how well we convey our thought process [..] that you can trace and one that is based on personal intellect"?

I agree with the first bit (the idea that you have to be able to supply arguments with your design, explaining why it is a good design) but not with what I think is the second bit (the idea that only intellectuals can come up with a concept?).

But maybe I misread Tim...

At a crossroads

I'm at a point in my life where I know I want to do ux design after doing web design for so long an then reading about usability testing etc 6 years ago. But my issue is I'm tired of working for orgs who say they care about their customer but don't do testing to even know what their customers want from them. So, do you guys know of places in Pittsburgh that focus on hcd and value it for themselves and their clients? I'm kind of fed up with working for people who don't get it.

" IxDA is basically that Org, IMHO re-born in a new generation."

BINGO!

And it *cannot* be efficient without being effective.

If you're doing the wrong thing, it doesn't matter how fast you're doing
it. You're not efficient.

Help me categorize UX-related conferences/workshops

I've been asked numerous times to recommend conferences and workshops to
designers
and usability professionals.

I've decided to create a matrix to categorize the various events on two axis
-
1) practical to theoretical
2) non-visual to visual

If you have 5min, please take the following survey and help me create an
accurate
matrix:

*http://www.surveygizmo.com/s/99033/ux-conference-map

*I will of course publish the results as soon as I have a reasonable set of
data.

Best regards,
Russ

P.S.

**SL-JUNK** method for keeping track of employee UI suggestions?

Hi David-

There are some third-party tools that exist specific to collecting
user feedback on products - one that I have seen, but have no
knowledge of, is Ideascope. the marketing material makes it sound
great. :-)

We use a wiki for product requirements, and bugzilla for tracking
suggestions.

The way we have worked it out is that suggestions "out of the blue"
are assigned to a special "product management" product, with a
component that corresponds to the particular product in question.
