You asked:
With that in mind I ask what are we, the new generation of designers,
missing from the puzzle?

Some answers:
- I got into the game before there was a lot of formal training around
IxD/UX. That's the reason many of us oldsters have backgrounds that are
different.
- What's missing from design education IMO is the writing and
communication skills from typical liberal arts education. The need to
communicate in writing can't be understated, even in a world of visuals.

- a solid understanding of business fundamentals can't hurt. The extent
to which you can empathize with business people and their quest for
profits will make you more peruasive.
