Did you miss the Interaction 13 Conference, in Toronto this past February? Join IxDA Pittsburgh for our annual Conference Redux event, hosted at bar & concert venue the Brillobox, in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Meet at the 1st-floor bar for a drink, then head to the 2nd floor to watch recorded presentations from the conference. We may even have an added surprise or two that we'll announce soon. And keep an eye out for a Facebook poll to help us choose the videos we'll show!
The Digital Life Podcast, produced by Involution Studios has released their most recent episode, a discussion with Suzanne El-Moursi (chair of IxD13) and Alok Nandi (chair of IxD14) about the recent conferece in Toronto and the upcoming conference in Amsterdam next year.
If you missed the IxD13 Education Summit, I put together a recap of the ideas that came out of it. Lots of good fodder here for how IxDA could help improve design education, get it into schools earlier, etc etc etc.... Read the blog post.
Sadly, Interaction13 is not in the cards for me this year due to getting my new business, DHealth, off the ground. My "early bird" ticket, priced at $750 vs. the now-$950 general ticket, is up for grabs. Please get in touch with me at ixd (at) elizabethbacon (dot) com to make arrangements for purchase/transfer.
