The Programmers Stack Exchange has a question, "Is software innovation still primarily North American and European? Why, and for how long?" I would like to ask the same about UX.
Fields like software engineering and business process are known for doing a good deal of outsourcing, and I know at least several software developers who have found work as expatriates. Is UX still a chiefly North American/European discipline? Wherever user interfaces are being developed, there is a use for UX practitioners to share their knowledge. To what extent is this being done outside the West?
What are some of the companies in East or Southeast Asian markets that have UX teams? Do you know of UX practitioners who have done consulting in these markets and written about how they became involved there?
