Anthropology + UI Design = Streamlined Experiences
Nice to know I’ll be needed in the future.
From the article ‘Top 60 Jobs That Will Rock the Future‘:
Pretty soon your PC won’t be the only interactive digital element of your home. It’s probably already started with your television, but more scientists are needed to work on ways to streamline the home experience. From integrated entertainment elements to simpler multifunction pads to adjust climate control devices, part of the challenge is to devise ways to make new interface elements attractive and user-friendly.
I love the bit about ‘more scientists’ are needed in design. Most people look to engineers overlooking the fact that social scientist, as in anthropologists, can play very key roles in design!
Anyone need me now? I am currently open to new opportunities of any sort!

Hi, also an anthropologist/digital designer.
Do you know of any online resources/blogs/communities for our kind?
