UX Weekly, Take 2

UX Weekly is on its 44th edition, but I've been tinkering with what it's trying to accomplish, and how to accomplish it. 

The newsletter is subscribeable at uxwkly.com, and my thinking for it is available on my blog.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, opinions, critiques, and recommendations.

Just to get you interested:

Mature UX in University IT/Library groups

Hi, I'm looking for universities with mature UX on the "business" side  (instead of academic side), which will probably be in IT or in Libraries. So far, I found one:

University of Michigan
Library Information Technology: User Experience Department
"Our efforts are focused on interface design (interaction design & visual design), user research, assessment (usability, web use statistics analysis), content strategy, and web accessibility".

Thanks for any pointers.

What are the details on contract IxD/UX work? (does it even exist)

While I was at an internship over the summer, a client recommended that I start seeking contract work while I finish up my MFA. (as opposed to my previous plan of taking a bunch of internships to learn different skills.. I'm told more than one internship can make it look like you didn't learn anything or your skills aren't up to par for a real position)

Are there ways we can help/engage our local community with our design skills?

So I was just looking through my twitter feed and saw a public collaboration from a couple of local visual artists, one of which I know from his academic work, and I was thinking how great it is that he can share the fruit of his work with the community. 

It got me wondering if there is anything that we as UX or Interaction Designers can do in the same way. It's obvious that most of what we do is not consumable in such a passive way as purely visual arts, but surely there is something we can do.
