What is your interest in the field of User Experience? (ie, do you work as a UX designer, developer, architect? are you an enthusiast, student? etc etc)
I think UX first caught my eye while working with accessibility, and front-end application development. If the users don't like it- or can't use it, trust me they won't.
I think it's best said- I never want to be in that boat where someone says it looks like a programmer designed this!
