I graduated from school about a year ago and have been working as a
independent freelance web designer. I am in the process of doing some
career planning and would really appreciate all of your feedback, as I
would imagine there also many other people out there like me.
Basically, I received a design education (BFA @ The School of Visual
Arts) and have been a tinkerer in Web Design since high school

Micro-Interactions in a 2.0 World
We live in a world where the little things really do matter. Each
encounter -- no matter how brief -- is a micro interaction which makes
a deposit or withdrawal from our rational and emotional subconscious.
The sum of these interactions and encounters adds up to how we feel
about a particular product, brand or service. Little things. Feelings.
R/GA is seeking seasoned Senior Interaction Designers to join its
Interaction Design team in New York City.

announcements in Philly, Waterloo, San Francisco, and Boston. This month in
New York, Alex Wright, an Information Architect at the New York Times, will
talk about the technological limitations we face on the web, and about the
Interaction Design lessons that we can learn from the precursors to the web
to help get around them.
