Do you have a favorite UX/IA/UI book and if so why?

The Design of Everyday Things. I now catch myself dissecting the design of the tools I used to take for granted. And it has great man vs. technology stories.

What do you do (or want to do) related to the UX field?

So far: Helped design a facebook app to reach loved ones during disaster-triggered communication blackouts. That was part of an HHS contest (still proud, our team won 3rd place). I'm minoring in Human Factors / HCI. Next: Usability testing? Professional book discussant?

What's the one tool that you couldn't live without? (Analog or digital)

Dropbox. I'm embarrassed by how much time I used to waste syncing data manually.

What's your Twitter handle?
