"Well, if people are interested in collaborating on some of these
definitions, I would be happy to try and coordinate."
He also suggested a wiki as the tool of choice, which is a good idea. If
IxDA has a Basecamp account, though, it might be prudent to compile a short
list of people to include in a BC project, who can use a Writeboard to
create these definitions and then toss them out to the list for feedback.
Our definitions should go beyond UCD. Should also include ACD, genius design
(likely a recap of Saffer's original definition, which is often
misinterpreted or otherwise abused), and other processes/approaches. Perhaps
the very act of defining these terms will help IxDA gain more widespread
respect from the larger community.
Can the IxDA board please speak up? How might we go about doing this?
