Jean Webber suggested that some people can't get involved in UI design,
because their companies won't let them. Bruce Byfield suggested that some
people don't want to face the challenge of UI design.

This may be true, but there are some of us who want to *write*. While some
people may want to do UI design, that's not true of everyone.

I've worked as a programmer. While my favourite aspect of programming was UI
design, I would still rather be a writer. I'll leave UI design to those who
prefer it.
