Core77 article - The Strategic arc of interaction design

An article of mine was published by core77 yesterday and I'm interested in hearing your reactions. Does the article resonate with you? What did I miss? Get wrong/right?

Designers of interactions have the opportunity to move their purview beyond the shallow plane of interaction into the design of systems, organisational capability and culture; to tackle very complex problems and affect profound and lasting change.

The article is available here:

Let me know what you think.

Junior Interaction Design MeetUp

I am a junior interface designer living here in Dallas Texas. I just recently lost my job in telemarketing for social media, in which I really didn't like, I tried reasoning with my company about interaction design but they wouldn't hear me out. I would like to start an organization that mirrors the values of ixDA's principles, yet targets the younger demographic. I would like to educate high school students about interaction design creating youth clubs and fostering an interest early. I'm hoping to get collegiate students interested as well to gain more colleagues in the industry.

Apologies if this is inappropriate but I thought it might be worth a shot to see if any of you fine folks knew of openings for an interactive designer/information architect around the Portland-Freeport area. I'm making the move in October & scouring the interwebs for a new agency to call home.

I've attached my resume in pdf format.  It would be greatly appreciated if you had any guidance for me. Hopefully I'll be seeing some of you around town soon!

Thanks for your time,

Looking for a designer on a short deadline

Hello Everyone,

I am looking for a designer for a project that I am working on.  I have all of the wireframes that lay out all of the page elements with a lot of details and I need a designer to put a design around it.  The project needs to be completed in the next two weeks.

Right-hand navigation

Hi all,

We're working on a new site design and some initial user testing has shown that our local navigation is just as effective on the right side of the page as it is on the left. Generally, my experience has been that if it looks like navigation, people usually figure out that that's what it is, so, while I'm feeling like the right-side will work, I'm still hesitant to flout conventions.

I reviewed this thread from a couple of years ago:

UX mentor and/or design projects wanted to help build experience!

I've been in the UX field for 3+ years now but I keep hitting a series of bumps (starting with a layoff in 2009) that have prevented me from expanding my professional design portfolio. The majority of my professional work has revolved around usability evaluation and user research, although I have done some design work professionally, on the side, and in grad school. For the past year, my professional work has focused on usability testing and user research.
