Looking for Social-Good focused UX Opportunities

I have a somewhat unique background and a somewhat unique vision for my future. My grad school recruiter once told me "you will be extremely valuable to a small group of companies." The challenge is finding them.

Guidelines for support documentation for apps

Hi Gurus!

I am currently starting to work on creating a pleasurable user experience for support documentation for an app. This app has versions that run on an iphone, android, mac as well as a windows OS. 

Are there any guidelines or specs for creating such documentation? 

Any light that you can shed on this will be very helpful.

Thanks!

Amsterdam has inspired artists and designers for ages. Names like Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Steen, Mondriaan and Berlage come to mind. From the Golden Age to the present day, design has played an important role in the city’s prosperity. During Interaction14, there will be two nights to explore Amsterdam. You may want to extend your stay to take in all the inspiration Amsterdam has to offer.

In late 2013, what is a reasonable startup time for an iPad app?

Looking for research or commentary on what makes for a reasonable start up time for an iPad app.  Obviously, it depends on the processor (iPad Air i.e. iPad5 will be much faster than an iPad2 or iPad Mini), the connection speed, and the size of the app.  But say all of those factors are controlled/averaged...what is the amount of time a normal user would consider normal, reasonable, long, or rediculous to startup an iPad app?

Much of it is the expectation of what the app is giving the user, so I would love to hear how to manage that expectation as well.

textual user data: workflows? tools?

I'm fairly new to UX and very new to UX research.  I'm working on a research project involving hundreds of user interviews, so we will have several hundred textual transcripts to sort through and derive meaning from.  I haven't seen the data or interview questions yet, so I don't have a lot of information to share here.

Feedback on my portfolio - industrial designer wanting to switch to interaction/visual design

Hello, I'm new here! I studied and worked for 1 year as an ID (with some projects in IxD and interface design), but now I want to make the switch to interaction/visual UI design. 

I was wondering if I could get some feedback on my online portfolio? I've been working on on some new projects that are more focused towards interface and graphics, as a lot of my prior work was more product/industrial design. The website is
