Sometimes you stumble upon a brilliant book or article where you think “well, they said everything I had to say and probably better”. This article: http://mashable.com/2009/01/09/user-experience-design/#comment-11384681 gave me that experience.
It lists the top 10 misconceptions of UX from ‘UX is user interface design’ over ‘UX is just about the user’ to ‘UX a choice’. If I could add an 11th misconception I would add “UX is about tools”.
People often htink that because you are a designer you must be great at Photoshop or that if you are great at Photoshop, you can be a designer.
It is short, maybe even too short, but really worth the read.
