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."
