Takeaways from Interaction '11

Now that the conference has ended, I'm curious what learning or thoughts folks have taken away from it. As we begin to synthesize our exeriences, it's great to share them with the IxDA community.

  • What was the best talk you attended?
  • What themes did you see emerge, if any?
  • Find any insights that you can apply in your practice or day-to-day work?

Many thanks to our Interaction 11 team, sponsors and attendees

As I prepared to leave Boulder this morning, I was struck by the enormity of what I had just experienced, and humbled by the energy, efforts, and spirit of individuals and organizations that brought it all to life. We're not just talking about the efforts seen over the past week; this is effort that spans the last 18 to 24 months.

To the conference chairs, Jon Kolko and MJ Broadbent, we thank you for your vision and for creating and leading such an amazing conference team that brought it to life.
