Calling interaction design "digital industrial design" might be a useful
metaphor
to help traditional designers feel more comfortable with it, but like most
metaphors,
it has significant limits.

DESIGNING INTERACTIVE SYSTEMS - DIS2004

Dear Colleague,

Submission of Full Papers and Design Cases to DIS2004 is now open. The

deadline for submissions is 10 December 2003.

DIS2004 will take place in Cambridge MA from 1st - 4th August 2004. It will

provide a rich forum for discussing interactive systems design theory, new

design methodologies and for reflecting on design practice.

To further on Molly's note, it seems quite a bit of design comes from
research as well.

One could say design is the result of any realized knowledge.

MessageDo I defend IDSA or Icograda? Not necessarily, but I support every honest attempt to strengthen the voice of design.

Would I want to have someone else speak for me? Yes, if they among other things constitute a powerful (lobbying) force to develop, educate about and promote the importance of design to relevant stakeholders. No, if they presume to speak for the discipline I adhere to, interaction design, without having the required competence to do so, and going counter to my interests.

It's interesting to note that in Italy, industrial and product design
sprang from architecture. (Until recently, it wasn't possible to
study these things separately from them.) I also have heard but can't
verify that Italy graduates 10,000 architecture students each year.
Bill Moggridge at last weeks' Ivrea symposium indicated that
interaction design is a sort of digital industrial design (to Beth
Mazur's earlier point). Those who come from technology tend to look
at it differently: as a series of interfaces and interactions with
screens and layers of information.

I tossed the above out to see what thoughts might emerge. Interesting that
some folks came back to defend the orgs.

Design Council description of ID (Round II)

Thanks to Danny Bluestone for pointing it out, but the link didn't work,
probably as a result of the link auto wrapping in a plain text email. Now
sent as an HTML email instead which will hopefully make this email more
usable!

If you only receive plain text and the link does wrap, then copy the first
line of the link and paste it into the address bar of your browser, then
copy the second line of the link and paste it into the address bar,
appending the second to the end of the first to make one long URL.

Design Council description of ID

Positivism!

The Design Council (UK) are a generally well respected design organisation
and through Nico McDonald have provided an excellent description of what
Interaction Design actually is.
