ACM interactions: Whose profession is it anyway?

I've just been told that the May/June issue of ACM's interactions magazine is a special issue on "Whose profession is it anyway?"
(If you happen to maintain a subscription to ACM's Digital Library, the magazine can already be found here)

That must be a fun read if, like me, you are interested in defining the practice of User Experience.

I especially look forward to the following articles:
  • Making UX an engaging process for prospective user experience adopters, by Bob Goodman
  • Success with user-centered design management, by Jeremy Ashley and Kristin Desmond
  • The adaptive user experience organization, by IAI president Victor Lombardi
  • and User experience: back to business, by fellow Dutchies Peter Bogaards and Ruurd Priester
As soon as I receive the magazine I'll review these here. That means it may take 6 weeks: ACM's international shipping option sometimes makes me feel they use rowboats...

Peter - you should be able to log into your online ACM account and download the articles for free. It is a pain to get the whole magazine this way, but you can get the articles you think are most interesting while you wait for the pigeons to fly your copy over the Atlantic.

I am not an ACM DL subscriber, only a SIGCHI member - and that gives me access to interactions in the digital library (but not other things).

I'm a SIGCHI member too, and on ACM's account page it is even stated (twice) that it includes interactions, but I cannot access the articles ("Full-Text is a controlled feature") when I log in.

Maybe I should have opted for an online version of interactions specifically?

Peter, paging Nemo to help push the magazine over the ocean floor...
