Three kinds of design

I've been thinking on this for a while and I admit the idea's still
only half-baked. But I thought I'd toss it out to the list for
commentary.

I think there are three kinds of design for product features (web site
features also, not so much with intranet features).

1. Core design. This is "the good stuff" that we all want to be
doing, that we have tools and techniques aimed to support (personas,
contextual design, et cetera).

Designer turned Entrepreneur

I'm looking for examples of designers who are founders of online
companies like guys in 37 Signals, Wufoo or Slideshare?

Is it an advantage? How does it feel to be one? (No ROI reports, no
institutionalization! A seat in the board!) :)

PS: Design consultants are not counted.

Looking for startup-minded designers!

Hi everyone,

We're closing in on 300 pitches over at elegant.ly — and we simply do not have enough talent to match them up with companies. We need top tier designers, like you, to apply. The need is especially dire in San Francisco / Silicon Valley but we have pitches all over, including Austin, Boston, Los Angeles, Seattle, and even places like Barcelona, London, Brazil, Israel, etc.

UXCampNE (note, it is now North East and not NYC) following up

Just coming back from the IA Summit, I did a bit of talking up of
BarCamp (see barcamp.org) and more specifically my idea for a barCamp
styled event this year on the NE side of the the Continental US.

I got some great energy and enthusiasm from people, and wanted to make
sure that some basic information about BarCamping was out there for
folks. As noted above the real details are on the BarCamp Wiki.

Ok, here's the dealio ...

BarCamp - Think of this as open source conference.
* no financial commitments to attend
* everyone who attends presents or helps out in another way.
