IXD 2013 > Slide decks for the speaker's presentation

At the conference this year, the speakers said not to worry about taking pictures b/c the conference would make the presentations available after then conference. So, I didn't take any slide photos, just notes. Now, I haven't received any follow-up information on where to get access. Where can attendees get the slides?!

Also, I heard that IXD would be offering videos of each of the presentations. So attendees could also see presentations they may have missed due to scheduling conflicts.

Excerpted from a post on my blog:

Would love feedback fromn IxDA'ers...


At Dux2007 <http://www.dux2007.com/> in Chicago, I attended a workshop where
I asked the group why we don't design software like we do hardware? Why
don't we spend more time in prototypes, mockups, etc. One of the attendees,
a software designer...

can we make it to easy?

I was reading about Microsoft having recruited Adobe's (think
photoshop UI and more) Mark Hamburg to work on user experience. I
don't find Adobe product o be particularly user friendly, but I do
find them to be consistent and remarkably efficient once you get over
a learning curve. I appreciate that approach a lot. I found my self
wondering if, for professional tools, there is greater adoption,
product loyalty and stickiness in leaving a certain amount of
difficulty in the UI? The thinking goes...

(Plug) Beyond Findability IASummit Pre-Conference Workshop

Hey IxD friends.

I know many of you are still drifting down from the mountaintop experience
in Vancouver, which truly sounded inspiring from the reports on Twitter and
what-not for those of us not able to attend. (I *must* make it to Savannah
next year!)

But we're already looking ahead to March.

Research/paper/insights on Use of mobile technology by Professionals on the move


I'm currently working for an internal paper for my organization.

I need to collect research material on usage of mobile/technology to meet user needs, specifically of professionals that are constantly on the move. I'm also looking for content on behavioural and motivations for such professionals.

Any relative links or cues in this direction will be a great help.

Looking forward for more enriching information.
