Thanksgiving 2005

November 25th, 2005 by Tom Chi :: see related comic

We do a good deal of satirical critique at OK/C, so I figured this was a good week to lay low and think about what we are thankful for. A couple quick ones:

* UX/HCI has come a long way as a field, and there’s been plenty of press as great design as an important ingredient to business success.

* The job market has picked up again, and there are plenty of organizations who know enough to appreciate the value of an information architect or a design researcher.

* Of course, we’re thankful for our readers.

So what are you thankful for?

In addition to the things Tom’s already mentioned - especially the readers part:

I’m thankful for having so many artists intersted in our new venture, Off Panel (yes that was a plug but really, I am thankful that there’s a reasonable amount of interest).

I’m also thankful for having a permanent address which is the first time I’ve felt anchored in about 2 years. Being a nomad is only fun for so long.
