I Feel Pretty. Pretty Cranky.

Peter Merholz on the death of user experience: What people not call "user experience" used to be called "design" (by the Eames generation). The term "user experience" was necessary because "design" had become associated almost exclusively with the way something looked. The pretty, the aesthetic.
Sounds like what I use the word "fashion" for. Peter says it's getting better, but I don't think he has a kid.

Don't even get me started on the people who only use design to mean graphic design, or the people who refuse to discuss the nexus between art and craft.. it's vexing...
