Scholarships/Grants for Grad School

I'm in the process of applying for grad school, looking to learn about and study the usability of public transit systems. This is cross-disciplinary, but a big component of it is masters-level training in UX/Interaction Design. Would anyone happen to know of good scholarships/grants to chase for work in this area?

-Chinese stories and mythologies;
-The uniqueness of Chinese story telling;
-Translating Western Brands into China;
-Elements of Chinese Design;
-The "Psychology" of Shanghai;

So, can you speak great English and understand Chinese culture in depth?

Spore and Sugarscape and the 2050 Project

I was doing some research this morning and stumbled upon "The 2050
Project" which was an effort jointly pursued by SFI and the World
Resources Institute.

I haven't dove into Will Wright's past ( to see if Sugarscape was the
basis for Spore), but I did notice on the Spore wikipedia page that they
are using procedural generation.

Has anyone done any prototyping with Sugarscape?

Do you regard "Interaction Design" as good namefor your design practice? else, what's your prefer?

I do contract work for both private clients and through an agent. My resume
and my bio say "user experience specialist." I am finding that "user
experience" has taken hold in mainstream business and so people to whom I
pitch proposals understand it.

Agile & UXD

What are your experiences in an agile environment? What has worked for
you and what hasn't?

My organization is considering employing agile, and I tend to be of the
opinion that UXD needs to be at the forefront of the process thinking
about things holistically - then breaking the project into chunks that
will eventually result in a complete user experience.

Sorting buttons... left-to-right, top-to-bottom

IMHO it's more about the spacing between the buttons than about the
arrangement. I would probably prefer the left-to-right version, but
in both cases you should have more space between the columns or rows
depending on which arrangement you choose.
