Education: why "HCI"? (was RE: Ph.D. in HCI)

I was reading the last part of the Ph.D. thread and well it occurred to me
that people were using "HCI" to mean interaction design. HCI is seldom a
design degree (that's one piece), and it is not equal to Interaction Design.

Maybe it is that HCI is a research degree and SHOULD be done the way it
currently is, but a design degree is more like a professional degree and
should probably be done in a very different department than an HCI degree.

I wonder if any of us really need a Ph.D. to do our jobs.

IxDA Fundraising Initiative

Have you wanted to participate in something for IxDA, but haven't felt like
you could devote a lot of time?

This might be an interesting initiative for you.

We are planning to hold a fundraiser by the end of June to support the
revamp of the ixda.org infrastructure. Our growth has been amazing over the
past few years, and our current infrastructure is barely able to support our
existing membership. IxDA has chosen Drupal as the technology framework for
our next-generation infrastructure.
