I have recently joined the iXDA list distribution and appreciate the
intensity of UX discussion exhibited in message postings. I am hoping
to add people to my group that share our passion for UX design and
development. If you know of anyone who may be interested in the current
openings at CSC -please feel free to pass along this message or to contact
me directly.

Thanks in advance for helping to spread the word!
