best cites to get /host UI and UX talent

I have an opportunity to build a UI/UX team for my company and (like everyone else) am concerned about finding quality talent. There is a potential to develop this group at a number of different locations across the US. My experience has shown that certain cities will "resonate" better to the design community. I'd very much like to hear this groups opinions as to the options listed below.

In fact, I've never subscribed to a mailing list before, so I

How do people use applications differently from expected?

I seem to remember that in an earlier post Robert mentioned that users will
not always utililse an application as expected, for example, using a wiki as
a project management tool.

When our company got a Confluence wiki I initially considered creating a
space for a group of users but decided against it because there was no
navigation menu. I later discovered there was a left navigation menu plug-in
and saw other sites using the left nav with a Search above it.

Should an e-commerce design agency test the usability of its own designs?

Recently I was on an e-commerce strategy project. I received a
usability test report that the previous agency had produced after

problems users were having in the sessions, and the resulting report.

I know it's convenient for e-commerce site owners to get an
integrated package, esp. when large MSA's are in place. And trying
to keep ahead of Agile cycles puts strain on the schedule and number
of partners.

We have a lot of great communication and design-related books
published in last 15 years, but there are others from 30+ years ago
whose content still rings true. Sometimes they may speak even more
loudly than when they were first published and remind us that many
concepts we're exploring today aren't always so new after all.

Some like those from Marshall McLuhan, Edward de Bono, and
Christopher Alexander are still talked about and mentioned once and a
