Career tips for a high-schooler

List friends,

A high-school sophomore with an interest in a software design career will be
job-shadowing me Friday as part of a career day assignment. Any tips I
should pass along about education or breaking into the business would be
welcomed. I'm especially curious to hear from designers or design students
on this list who are just now starting out about what is working (or not)
for you. Thank you on behalf of my visitor,

Michael Micheletti

[EVENT RECAP] Chicago IxDA September Event


For our September event, we had guest speaker Steve Portigal in from
California to talk about cultural context. Steve showed many examples of
different cultural expectations via some of the great photographs he's taken
during his travels. He also explored the reactions people have when their
normalized understandings of the world are pushed past the edges that define
their worlds and comfort levels.
