    Turns out, designers are whole people.

    In my understanding, genetics explain certain affinities or tendencies—tactile/cerebral, dexterous/clumsy, thoughtful/reactive, anxious/calm, etc— while a person's environment and access to opportunities allow those affinities to manifest into certain skills, then later, some profession.

    Do we really think all that separates a doctor from a janitor is experience?

    Yes, literally. (Well, and environment and opportunity)

    The same skills that makes someone a good janitor—troubleshooting maintenance issues, knowing how certain chemicals work together, or coordinating a team to solve a problem—may also make that person a good doctor.

    Your environment and opportunities point you to the profession to apply your skills. Has zero to do with innate, "natural-born" talent.

    Can we take a moment to appreciate how nice this government site is?

    Initially I thought this was a product of 18f, but looking at the source, it looks like it was put together by this agency.

    Almost our entire agency (5/6 people) uses the Evoluent Vertical Mouse, and we love it. The vertical design keeps forearm strain down, and there are plenty of buttons to program to get more use out of. I'm a huge evangelist.

    If there's already great solutions out there for hosting work (Dribbble/Github), or talking about it (Medium), then why reinvent the wheel?

    Because if you haven't curated any work on your personal site, it puts the burden on hiring managers to sort through your profile, figure out your taste and level of expertise, and make a judgement call.

    I don't see it as reinventing the wheel, but more like you showing us your highlights/greatest hits. Even if those pieces link to Dribbble or wherever, it's good to have a place to start.

    Speaking from experience, if I don't see any work immediately, I'm moving on to the next person in my list. Looking at your Dribbble profile, you've got some great work too!
