A week ago I asked the question, "How do we best stay abreast of rapidly changing technologies and their implications/potential for interaction design without getting bogged down code?" I received excellent responses from all: suggestions ranging from newsletters, sites-to-watch, and script libraries, to conferences, blogs, and discussion groups; as well as some excellent sound bites along the lines of this one: "What is possible and what is desirable--our job is to find the intersection of these two spaces. If you only ever look within that which is possible, you never create the opportunity to do better. Often times, when you define what is desirable, you suddenly find that new things are possible."* The upshot being: there's no single, one-stop-shopping source**, but there's a lot of great info out there in various places, forms, and forums if you're willing to spend some time digging a bit and briefing yourself, while still keeping your brain free to
dream :]. Following, for your reference, are the compiled resources. Thanks to everyone who responded!
