Top design title in your organization?

I was wondering if IxDA'ers would share their views on promotion
paths in software design.

(I believe this has been discussed to some degree before)

I see two:

1) Chief of Design or Chief Designer or ??
2) VP of Product Design and possibly Chief Design Officer

The first seems more along the creative, individual contributor
track -- similar to Chief Architect.

Shorthand for listing user actions from recordings

I posted this to another list and got no bites, so I
thought I would take a shot with the IxDA community!

Has anyone developed a "shorthand" or language for specifying user
actions in recordings?

Yup, u b right ... But ...

I think that there is definitely a trend to be moving in this direction.
This can't just happen. We have to earn our stripes and we need to work with
the best allies we can find in the organization.

Re: Signal Orange

Elizabeth's example of the Vietnam bracelets is a much better
illustration of this concept. Here's the crucial detail that's obscured
in the Signal Orange project. The bracelets open a dialog between two
people. That's the interaction the bracelets facilitate.

"... the wearer could talk about the person [on the bracelet] to others."

Here's a related example of this kind of Interaction Design. The Spring
2004 issue of Design Issues has an article about Kate Wells and the
Siyazama Project in South Africa.

In-house design teams - what do you call yourselves?

I'm looking for ideas on what an in-house interactive/interaction/web design team should be called within a larger design group at a large (conservative) corporation. The designers will handle visual design, consult on interaction design best practices for applications, manage online campaigns, etc -- broad enough that I'm not sure that web design/interactive design/new media design really fit, but something like "Media Technology" or similar isn't right either. 

Any thoughts? 

thank you!
