design process - and my role

I am going to hijack this tangent from the UCD discussion for the

Lots of designers fight their changing roles. From the independent
role where I get to decide everything that is 'design' to a
management role where I shepherd great work, or to a collaborative
environment with shared design responsibility - change is hard.
Design by committee is a much maligned notion, but a collaborate
group of designers with a single vision is extraordinarily powerful.

Do we really need to use Vowels to call ourselves a Designer?

Or, put another way:

D w rlly nd t s vwls t cll rslves dsgnr?

After all, we've seen the successful removal of vowels from sites like Flickr (though it's true they just didn't want to pay the extra dollar for the 'e' -- the life of cost-cutting startups).

But, do I as a dsgnr have to really invest in understanding and using vowels on a regular basis? Is it really important for me to dsgn ntrctns?

I contend that vowels only get in the way of good ntrctn dsgn, so I'm thinking nt.

Sequoia, Diebold Voting Machines

at the D.C.

usability of the Obama & McCain sites have a significant impact on the way
people perceive each candidate?

User-interface/Interaction v.s. Ergonomics

Dear all,
I would like to hear about your thoughts how much the field of
user-interface design and interaction design related to "Ergonomics."
And how much we can learn from "Ergonomics" about the interaction design?
Then, why?

This, I have been thinking of for long time.
Looking back in 1990s, I learnt the user-interface design partially
applying the discipline of human factors study in a university, and I
realize there are any thing I can take from the field of Ergonomics.
Nowadays, Ergonomics people think everybody have to come to them to ask
about user-interface and us
