I too come to Interaction Design from a straight, educational path.
However, I have a different perspective on this. If you look at
Graphic Design, there are a lot of designers that have been "bread
since youth"—likely more than come to it from other disciplines,
although I don't have anything to back that up. I wouldn't call it a
trend. I think Gretchen is right. It is simply due to IxD being a
young discipline, one that touches many other areas of expertise.
