Here's what Darja Isaksson has to say about the IxDA,

"IxDA is currently one of the most interesting organizations promoting Interaction Design. Even though the organization is young it has already contributed substantially, not least with creating new arenas for designers to meet, inspire and challenge each other. These meetings are essential for a viable community. We as designers need that, and so does a world in need for better design strategies."

Sorry to keep spaming the community with pledge drive notices. It will
all end on Friday morning so please bear with me.

Please remember to pledge. Each day we have a matching pledge which
we wont get unless we, the community contribute.

Even if it's only $5.00 it matters. And today if you pledge $100 you
get a terrific discount to a great and emergent IxD conference.

Thanks,

Greg
