I got this one off the SIGCHI Job Posting list.
It is not often that an Interaction Design title pops up and is so
clearly more than just a web design/software design role.

Shoot! I wish I could apply!
Please no discussion about the politics of Nike ... Thank you!

True.

I loved the "vision" portion of the responsibilities. It's good to see
opportunities offering the full gamet of UXD -- research, strategy,
design, dev, and education in a mgmt position.
