Interaction11 media partner Johnny Holland posted an interview today
with Ushahidi founder Erik Hersman, one of our conference keynote
speakers. JH talked with Erik about his hopes and dreams for
crowdsourcing, and the role interaction designers can play in fulfilling
that dream. Erik also gave a brief preview of some of the topics he’ll
address at Interaction11:
Eight lucky people attending Interaction ’11 will get to visit a perfumery here in Boulder called the Essence Studio as part of the Interaction ’11 Friday afternoon conference activities. Laurie Lamar has done a great job of selecting a wide array of cool design-related activities to choose from. Since many of you are still deciding which activity to sign up for, I figured I’d explore this particular activity and share my experience.
Today the Interaction11 team proudly announces the full conference program of keynotes, lightning sessions, workshops, and special events. In a post to the conference site this morning, co-chair Jon Kolko ran through some of the highlights, including:
Howdy interaction designers and the people who love them!
Verplank--a man known for sketching as he talks--has a long career
spanning design, research, and education. He spent time at Xerox on The
Desktop Metaphor, worked with Bill Moggridge at IDTwo & IDEO
pioneering our field, innovated design methods, researched haptics, and
lots more. He’s also spent many years educating and lecturing on human
factors, user-interface design, and most recently “new music
controllers” at Stanford’s CCRMA... And lots more!
The Interaction11 team pulled back the curtain another member of our keynote dreamteam today! We're pleased to announce that Lisa Strausfeld of Pentagram will be joining us the conference. With this latest announcement Jon Kolko and MJ Broadbent continue their theme of keynote awesomeness, as they handcraft a program for I11 that no one should miss.
