How do you hire a UX researcher?

Anyone have advice on hiring a user researcher? We have UX designers but having someone focused on research would really round out our team. Having a design background it is easier for me to interview graphic/interaction designers but interviewing researchers has felt awkward. 

I am wondering:

1. How important is the PHD?

2. Are there strong differences in personality types Research vs. Design?

Forms design - I'm researching and need help

Where are we on forms design today?

How far have we come on designing effective, intuitive, intelligent web forms? I'm researching forms design, both best practice and the more innovative ones. But I'm having a hard time finding really good examples.

HiOscar the insurance company is one example with some innovative qualities and certainly worth a study. But I'm searching for more advanced forms with higher complexity.

Companies / Agencies that do service design or tangible stuff?

Hi, 

I'm at the start of my XDA path really, and am wrapping up graduate school applications. I'm really interested in doing tangible interaction and service design. I am wondering if anyone knows of companies or firms that do this kind of work? I'm looking to connect with interaction designers in LA who are also interested in this type of design. Thanks a bunch!

Conversation around the IxDA Awards

Here's the link to the short list and finalists and winners of the IxDA Awards: http://awards.ixda.org/entries/

Steve Baty during the closing ceremonies of the conference said that we do these awards and similar initiatives to create a discourse in the community about them. I know I have little conversations here and there about them, but I don't see it happening in a way that moves things; that impacts the larger group. So I'll put this out here.
