Design definition (oh no, not again)

The fields of user experience design are suffering through a transition of terminology, at an inflection point of becoming a discipline comprising a set of related fields that many other major professions have gone through before. For example, marketing went through such a change in the early 1900’s, according to Steve Sato, well-researched individual I talked with recently at CHIFOO. It occurs to me that engineering likewise is a large profession that’s faced up to the range of titles that necessarily exist, from mechanical engineer to civil engineer to electrical engineer to software engineer…to software architect, developer, etc.
