Top design title in your organization?

I was wondering if IxDA'ers would share their views on promotion
paths in software design.

(I believe this has been discussed to some degree before)

I see two:

1) Chief of Design or Chief Designer or ??
2) VP of Product Design and possibly Chief Design Officer

The first seems more along the creative, individual contributor
track -- similar to Chief Architect.

Orientation (help)

Hello everyone,

I am new in Interacion Design. My major is marketing and I want to study my master degree in Interaction Design and I want to study in USA, but I don´t have any experience in this topic. I am passionate about design. I have learned use of some tools like illustrator, photoshop and some techniques of arts (painting, drawing, woodcut). All of this is for understand the world differently, understand the interaction in each one of the humans.   

Any suggestions on what else I can do?

Innovation in design (was: RFID and other fads)

Here is something to look into, for anyone who cares about having
an inventor's mind - TRIZ (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving),
a methodology for creative engineering design developed in the
1960s. This is one of the great timeless things, similar to
McLuhan's "Understanding media" and Ashby's "Introduction to
cybernetics". TRIZ has a fairly solid background - it took
200,000 patents to analyse to discover and describe how innovation
takes place.

That's a book, not an article or essay.

iPhone App Heuristics

Hello IXDA peeps,

I'm in the process of adapting Nielsen's heuristics for iPhone apps &
would love your input. Here's an example of one:

1. Visibility of app status
The app should always keep users informed about what is going on,
through appropriate feedback.
Example: Shazam provides feedback as it analyzes audio.
