I’m often asked what I do for a living. My reply varies depending on the situation:
- “Web stuff…”
- “I’m a Generalized Specialist with an interest in web strategy, user research, and interaction design…”
- “Ever been to a website and had a terrible experience? I help fix it…”
Today’s Dilbert comic strip gave me a new idea for how I should respond.
Over the years I can safely say that I have represented both characters.
The next time someone asks me what I do for a living, I will reply:
“I help people avoid creating website designs that make you feel like Satan is licking your brain.”
Thanks, Scott Adams!
