Why be an interaction designer

From Dan Saffer’s latest article:

Why Be an Interaction Designer?

So you can change the world, of course. Sure, it might look like we’re tinkering with buttons and drop-down menus and jog dials, but really what we’re doing is changing our world—one little bit at a time—making it more humane. We help people do their everyday tasks whether they are playing a game, saving a life, or moving money from one account to another. We’re injecting the world with our values: what we think is useful, usable, pleasurable, and good. And that’s not a bad job to have.

That’s why I’m an interaction designer.
