Hi,

Firstly let me say I very much enjoyed last nights London meeting.

Two issues were raised by various people that I would like to hear more
about:

1) Who in the group is interested in software and who is interested in
all kinds of interaction, including washing machines?

2) Secondly, are people in the group looking for a project to produce,
for example, some product or research / practice insights? Or / And are
people looking for a community that supports one another and provides a
forum for discussion? Or are people in the group looking for something
else?

My answers are as follows:

1) I personally am interested in all kinds of interaction, be it
software, washing machines, DVD players or telephone support services.

2) I would like a forum for discussion and also a project that people
can work on collaboratively. In fact last night I noted complaints
about open source software developments, and perhaps we could organise
for our involvement in an open source project such as 'open office' as
interaction designers - just an idea.

David.

I’m not sure this is the best place to have the discussion as there are
plenty of non-londoners on the list but I can’t think of a better place so
here goes:

1) I’m interested in all forms of interaction. Washing machines,
software, cars, robots, whatever.

2) I have enough on my plate without doing another collaborative
project as much as that intrigues me. I will mostly attend to hang out and
meet like-minded individuals and to get insight into what other people are
doing.

My main problem with the discussion was a) there was no room between the two
portions for us to ask Marc R some questions. I was very disappointed by
that and b) the forum for having such an open ended discussion as we had in
part 2 was inappropriate. It went all over the place and frankly, as
interesting as some of the comments were, was far more suited to the pub
where groups of 2-5 could have smaller more concentrated discussions and
more people could get a voice.

I will send what notes I have of the meeting to CD.
