One of the things that I love the most about the field of UX design is its diversity. As Matt says, ask ten different people what user experience means and you'll get ten different answers.
* UX is an umbrella term.
* UX is a movement.
* UX is a process.
* UX is a role.
* UX is a discipline.
* UX is an industry.
* UX is a philosophy.
* UX is a collection of techniques.
As it grows, this community will no doubt reflect that diversity. I'd love to record that in this sub-forum, so by way of introduction I'm inviting you to tell us your UX story. How did you get started? Are you interested in a particular area? Do you work in UX? Feel free to say as much or as little as you are comfortable with.
If there is something specific that you are looking for or need help with, make sure you include it so that the community can help you out.
