I had a chance to interview Bill Buxton at the Expression around the Clock event last week. In the following video segment, Bill answers my questions: what takes to be a great User Experience Designer? What are the necessary skills or area of skills? Is it good to be a design generalist? And design opportunities at Microsoft for recent graduates. It's great to get a design guru like him's view on these things.
Our interview was conducted just outside of the Second City (the Expression around the Clock venue). When we couldn’t find a quiet place inside the building, Bill simply walked outside, hung his coat up on a tree and sat down, ready to talk!
