One of the founding propositions of IxDA is that IxD is a discipline that
can be practiced within many professional contexts. People who practice IxD
have many titles, including "Interaction Designer", "Usability Engineer",
"Information Architect" Cat Wrangler, Butterfly Herder, etc.

We decided to focus IxDA on the development of the discipline, and to
support anyone else who was interested in doing so, regardless of title.

For this reason, IxDA is a supporter of UXnet, an organization that brings
together the various disciplines that comprise User Experience work, and the
many hats that we all wear when doing our jobs. See:
