"Aren't there more than two design disciplines?"

Of course there are, as all participants in this group are a living proof
of. Also architects, furniture designers, product designers, fashion
designers, toy designers, what have you...

Does Icograda's news release really say there are only two design
disciplines?

As a "major step...to forming 'one powerful voice' for all disciplines of
design" the IDA should be welcomed; as interaction designers should we not
join forces with them?

Indeed, the corresponding news item at IDSA speaks of an unprecedented epoch
of collaboration within the world of design:

It doesn't say there are only two design disciplines, but it does imply
that Icograda and ICSID will be the only two permanent members of the
new organization and that they alone will "develop its governing
structure."

If that is what passes as an "unprecedented epoch of collaboration,"
then I am truly underwhelmed.

Cheers!

Not me. This new group involves two meta-organizations (they
are both organizations *of* organizations) that represent
hundreds of thousands of professionals in over 50 countries.
They talk to groups like UNESCO

This list is about 800 people, three-quarters of whom didn't
participate in a recent survey about where to locate this new
organization, and another chunk of whom don't even want to
consider being labeled with the horrible d-word.

I'm not sure it is us that should be underwhelmed.

After reading the various press releases, I reviewed IDSA's
"About ID?" page and have now rethought my original theory
that IntD belonged in either ACM or UPA...now I think it
should be renamed "digital industrial design" and shopped to
IDSA (see idsa.org/webmodules/articles/anmviewer.asp?a=89&z=23).

Just a thought. I'm sure your mileage will vary.
