Hola, good people of the IA Meetup.  Hold onto your laptops, 'cause the UX market (aka web infrastructure) is about to heat up. Here at The Hired Guns we're seeing a lot of positive indicators that are aligning in your favor, and it's feeling very 2003  out there [for you new schoolers that =good]. Help us rip the band-aids off of all the crappy UX out there and let's have some fun this go around. In the meantime, if you have ecomm experience, we've got a little gig that could be perfectamundo for one of you guys!
 
PS. Are you going to GEL this year?
 
All the best,
 
Ally Hemming
