Hi,

I just moved to Durham, NC to design mobile interfaces and am wondering if if there are any IxD/usability people in RTP. Do you know of any active usability groups that get together in the area? Or perhaps people would just be interested in having a social and meeting other people?

If you are interested, send me an email.

I recently moved to Durham from Oakland CA. I have 7 years plus experience working as an interaction designer for Excite at Home, Actuate, among others. I am currently working for a mobile startup in RTP designing mobile UI and enterprise CMS systems.

You're in luck - there are a wide variety of people in RTP.

Organizations:
HFES
UPA (I think)
STC
IDSA (I think)
I imagine there are others.

Education (NC State):
HF/Ergo Engineering and Psychology
Industrial Design
Graphic Design (less than ID)
Technical Communication
Computer Science (HCI)

Employers with known IxD jobs
IBM (several groups)
Lenovo, I assume
SAS
SonyEricsson (the sole mobile company, I think)
Nortel
HumanCentric Technologies
Monterey Technologies
Hasketh
Insight Product Development
Lulu
