An interview with Laura Arlov - The Usability Silver Bullet (23 Mar 2000)
When I was at college age HCI was not available as a subject.

Actually, I graduated from Berkley and I saw a career in Technical Writing as my goal. I couldn't major in that either, so I did one of those multi-disciplinary degrees where you make up your own major. I did some biology, chemistry, math, computer science and advanced communication, advanced writing. Stuff like that. And some Norwegian classes, as I had met my future husband by that time.

I moved to Norway at the age of 21 and had my first working experience here. My whole professional career has been in Europe. If I hadn't joined Andersen Consulting, here, at one point, I really wouldn't have had any experience of large American projects at all.
