One of the greatest qualities in most creative problem solvers is a thirst for learning. Most designers and user experience professionals I know have some level of post-graduate education. But if you were to dig a little deeper, you would likely find that many have degrees in either partially or completely unrelated fields. The truth is the greatest thing you learn while getting a college education is that you alone are responsible for what and how you learn. Andy Rutledge recently leveled a very stern, yet honest, criticism of the state of UX Design Education in the college system: “ Today the appropriate path for UX design education goes around, not through, nearly all universities and colleges.”
If you emerge from university today with a web design degree, chances are rather slim that you’re employable as a user experience (UX) or web designer. Maybe you learned a lot of stuff; it’s just probably the wrong stuff. Congratulations, you’ve been defrauded. Hope it didn’t cost you or your parents too much. The game changed. Higher education didn’t…and it won’t.

Haim, CHVRCHES and The Flaming Lips are winners of the Inaugural Grulke Prize at SXSW 2013 So Long and Thanks for all the Fish!
Most of the recaps that I have read of this year's conference are similar to last year's, in that they focus not on the content of the conference, but whether the conference should exist at all. (SXSWi is always followed by a flurry of recaps, because nobody is sure of what SXSWi is, so they are not sure if SXSWi is failing or succeeding.) Some posts are sentimental or acquiescent . Others are just disappointed . Here's mine. “Even I know all of this stuff.”

If you’re using a Webkit browser (Safari or Chrome), it should also be animated using the webkit-animation CSS functions. If you are viewing in IE8 or below, well, this isn’t an experiment for you.
It took about 48 hours for us to recover (then again, we COULD use a little more sleep), but we’re all back at work at HOW HQ.
By Nicole Torres The Finnish-born architect Eero Saarinen once made a list of the positive attributes of his second wife, Aline Bernstein. Written around their time of their marriage, in 1954, it included “I—First I realized that you were very clever,” “VIII—That you were fantastically efficient,” and “X—That you have a very very beautiful body.” (This from the man who designed the TWA terminal at JFK, which shared the same qualities.) Eero Saarinen's list of Aline Bernstein's good qualities, ca. 1954.
