Big Picture UX - Augusta

As the field of UX professionals matures and the disciplines of interaction design, information architecture, user research, user interface design, and usability evolve to support modern technology we need to start looking at the big picture of UX. We need to go back to the roots of what UX means and how we should approach UX challenges.
