A monologue for the disheartened UX designer

I built a bridge once.

If you ever need a reminder of why we do UX, and the cumulative impact that making things usable has on people, this is it.

In this scene from 2011′s Margin Call (concerning the day in the life of a Wall Street firm facing financial collapse) Stanley Tucci’s character reflects on his previous career and the impact it had on people’s lives.

It’s a stark reminder of how some industries create value, and some transfer it.
