Is anything being done to help newcomers to get into the industry?

Hello everyone,

This has troubled me for quite a while.

I know there has been numerous threads about "How can I break into UX" or "How can I get a job in UX".

Other than just discussing and talking about this particular issue, is there any ACTION or movement towards getting this issue resolved?

Before you give me general advice, I'll let you all know what I've been doing within the confines of what i can do.

IxD definition WAS Interaction Design forESL Textbooks?

[I love it how Andrew is now defining IxD, after he did a great job of defining the IA CoP at the IA Summit!]

Just as IxD is a hybrid of other, earlier practices, so will IxD be seen as a pre-cursor to the User Experience practice.
We all stand on the shoulders of giants.

No mouse, no touchscreen, high pressure!

Hi there,

I'm looking for resources, guidelines, books etc that could
help with my current ID challenge. Here are the parameters...

* High pressure "factory floor" style environment

* Keyboard only terminals running Windows XP

* No touchscreen or custom input hardware available

* Users have 8 seconds to read and act on screen contents

* May have to fill in values for 1 or 2 fields somehow

Any pointers to existing literature covering this type of
situation would be VERY much appreciated. I dont mind buying a
book or two...

Product Company Entrapreneurs (apologies for cross posting)

As a fund-raising fool, I attend a lot of SV networking events for
entrepreneurs. There are plenty of them. I meet marketers, engineers,
business folks... but never any designers or folks with design
backgrounds (unless it's Frank Ramirez.) This might be my luck, or it
might be a trend. I'd like to hear from folks why you think this
happens? why don't more ID's, Interaction designers, etc become product
company CEO's? And yes, I've heard of 37 signals... but even they took
a different outsider path.
