As Thomas Carlyle put it, ”the crash of the whole solar and stellar systems could only kill you once.”
This is both welcome news and totally terrifying. Because if you’ve been practicing interaction design for a while (which I guess I have), you know that what qualifies someone for the title “interaction designer” has always been squishy. With this new emphasis from startups, I fear the term will get even more nebulous. There’s an art and science to the discipline - shaped by years of maturing the way we work and guided by thoughtful writing from respected authors, from Wurman to Garret to Saffer and everyone in between. And while there has always been a certain level of mercenary charlatanism to the field of interaction design, I can imagine it’ll only get worse as startups pick up every rock trying to find their now-essential practitioner.
