    "Hmmm well I think if we’re going to discuss UI and UX as separate entities" and there's the problem. It's been beaten to death. No one learns anything from this.

    Definitely consider them as separate entities — just no reason to do it loudly in an overdone medium.

      Hmmm. Not sure I can agree that it’s an overdone medium, there’s still people out there who think things like ‘separation of the two disciplines was born from totally arbitrarily constrained lists of skills that are merely discrete because someone made them so and the line between the two disciplines is fuzzy at best and more likely egregiously asymptotic; poorly-rationalised separation of such symbiotic skills is arguably more damaging for newcomers and generalists in the industry than it is beneficial for those wishing to specialise’ and, well, I’ll tell you this for free: as long as these people exist, I’m glad there’s others out there who’ll valiantly combat these notions with expertly-crafted visual analogies that clearly communicate there is a sheer and definitive difference between User Interface design and User Exequatur design. The community needs to rally against these outliers and show that, in fact, NO, there is a huge difference between the two and until the noisy minority pipe down we will consistently and lovingly craft clear, easily-digestible (if you pardon the pun!), frequently-shared graphical content that intelligently and intuitively portrays the hard line where User Interface design starts and User Exsanguination design ends. Hmmm. Thoughts?
