Alternative jobs relevant to UX research and design

I was fairly intrigued by this little bit burried in a thread about the lack of employment opportunities for junior UX folk.

I wonder if people do pay attention to simple things like writing "Copyright" or "©". I mean, grammatically it does mean the same, why then use both in the folio (footer) of your website? Its either or and not both.

Examples: (this one's wasn't expected) (this too?)

The betacup design challenge for a sustainable community

It’s been said that design shapes behavior; and in user experience (UX) design, behavior informs design which shapes behavior. We can almost taste the tail of the snake in its own mouth.

Prototyping Definition

Hi Everyone,

I have distilled the definition of prototyping, from a UX perspective, not a dictionary one. Anyway, it was part of a three part blog entry on my blog and I would be interested in your feedback and comments.


how to give a start for you innovation !

As a creative web designer, you will probably jobless in the near future; because variety of web layouts, iconography and interactivity has already invented and tested within the past 20 years. You may only experiment new graphic styles; but not more then that…  Regardless, your boss, your customers or the users still demand on your innovations to be impressed, but it isn’t so easy as before.
