I'm always taking screenshots of cool website interactions or designs when I browse around and put them into a 'design ideas/inspirations' folder on my computer. I was wondering, for you designers that do something similar, how do you go about organizing your clippings?

Job outlook for prospective students.

Hello everyone!

I am a prospective student on a specialization course in interaction design. My background is in a general design programme (with a focus on graphic design) where I have worked freelance with games and apps. What I am interested in is how competetive the job market is out there? The kind of position I would love to have after my specialization course is as a interaction designer at a digital agency preferably in Stockholm - Sweden, London, New York or San Francisco. If anyone of you have any insights regarding this I would be delighted to hear them :)

My concern is that Adobe seems to be giving up on Flash (mobile for now, but I assume the rest will follow, won't it?), and I do not want to put effort into learning something that will soon be obsolete.
