I love the idea of 'design for experience' also w/o caps!
I find user experience is only a strange term when it is capitalized - to me the user experience is simply the way we denote or subtitle information about the experience a user has with something/anything. I have a user experience regardless of one being intended or not. You can choose to study and affect it through other disciplines such as IA and Interaction/Experience/Service/Graphic Design.
he said the states were ignorant yes, did he say we didnt love them? no.
I'm almost glad this is making the rounds again...
Hopefully someone is sending all the comments to the mom and family that is now globally publicly humiliating their child.
Nothing says family, holiday and spiritual like a big box of disappointment, distrust and mockery.
