This issue brings more new faces and opinions, and we hope it provokes you to write in and add your voice to the mix. Our thanks go to Pabini Gabriel-Petit for pulling together the special section “Whose Profession Is It, Anyway?” Whether you agree with the discourse or not, we hope you’ll appreciate that the ownership/accountability dialog deserves exploration in these pages: It’s fundamental to who we are, what we do, and how we do it. We are grateful for each voice that has emerged, and we intend to return to the topic occasionally to see what is happening.
So what else is new in this issue? We so enjoyed Lars Erik Holmquist’s Cargo Cult story last issue that we asked him to write his own regular contribution; On The Edge will be appearing in the People section. Lars’ interests in tangible computing and the frontiers of interaction will give our readers some new things to think about in the coming issues.
We are continuing to develop <interactions> and we welcome your comments on the content and “look & feel” of the magazine at email@example.com. We’ve heard from a few of you that you like what you see; please keep your comments coming! It’s what helps us move forward and better serve our readership.

- In the January/February issue the caption was missing from Alien Usability, our back cartoon. The caption should have read: “But my training is in human computer interaction!”
- In the March/April issue the back cartoon was incorrectly titled. The correct title is “Postcards from the future,” by Atticus Wolrab.
