I'm french and I work as what we call an "ergonome". I'm a bit confused about all the terms that are used to speak about "UX/usability/interaction" related jobs in the english speaking world : I read things about "Interaction designers", "Human factor specialists", "User experience specialist", "Usability specialists", "Information architects", and I'm... lost.
I'm currently based in the Philippines / Hong Kong and am heading back to London (I'm British) in a few weeks when I've wrapped up work here. I should be here Monday 3rd June and I'd like to attend the next IxDA meeting in London to meet you guys and network.
My questions are about London: What's the work situation like there? And who are the best people to contact?

Yesterday, I had an interview for a position at a major online selling company. While discussing my work and my vision of usability and design, few questions came and I thought it could be a good point to share some of them and to have your inputs about these thoughts.
1. How are you making the difference between a web app and a website?
2. Do you consider Google as a web app or a website?
Feel free to answer or to give your thoughts about theses questions as I am looking to have different points of view.
If you are an experience design professional passionate about Search,
you must attend the Enterprise Search Summit in NYC May 11-12. I have
spoken on designing social search in the enterprise as well as designing
search experiences a few times at this conference – and it really is
the best conference around this problem space. Our good friend Peter Morville will be one of the keynote speakers talking about Search & Discovery Design Patterns. Again - this is pretty cool.
I've been aggressively job-hunting lately, and a couple of weeks ago I decided to revise the tired old résumé I had been sending out- I felt it didn't really represent me well anymore. Instead of just swapping templates or just changing a few lines or adding new positions, I treated it like I would any other UX project.
