Hi Everyone,

Adaptive Path's Dan Saffer comes to NYC next week to talk about Documenting
Rich Internet Applications (RIAs). We've already had great response from our
previous announcements, so we've got just a few seats left. Get your RSVPs
in soon! Also, after the talk, Adaptive Path will sponsor drinks at Eight
Mile Creek. Drinks are open to everyone, regardless of RSVP. Details appear
below.

But first, here are details on the talk:

__--Beyond Wireframes: Documenting RIAs--__
Presented by Dan Saffer
October 24th, 6:30pm
Location provided on RSVP (e-mail nyc-rsvp at ixda.org)

Our websites have become more functionally rich, thanks to Ajax, Flash, Flex
and the like. But our documentation hasn't kept up. We need rich
documentation to match the rich experiences we're now able to provide
online. In this discussion, we'll explore what wireframes can still do, plus
new forms of documenting including lo-fi animations and state diagrams.

Dan Saffer is a Senior Interaction Designer at Adaptive Path (
http://www.adaptivepath.com/). Dan's book, Designing for Interaction, has
been called a "fresh, accessible and thoughtful guide to interaction design"
(Richard Grefe, Executive Director, AIGA) and "a bookshelf must-have for
anyone thinking of creating new designs" (Jared Spool, CEO of UIE). He
served as the senior interaction designer for Ameritrade, the top online
brokerage. He led the initial redesign of the Ameritrade site, focusing its
features and functionality on active traders.
