Hi Everyone!

What a show Dan, Dave and team put on for us last week. Cheers to them. If
you missed the conference and your friends are telling you how awesome it
was to rub it in your face, don't be too sad. Just because the conference
is over, it doesn't mean that we stop working for you! Come join us for a
great talk and some post-conference fun at our February event.

Hope to you there.

Description
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Interactive Television, whether on set-top boxes or on Internet-enabled
televisions, poses interesting challenges in Interaction Design. The most
obvious is enabling interactions without a keyboard. But it's also a
challenge to develop metaphors for navigation, elegantly round up content,
and provide ways for editors and users alike to annotate the content. We
will discuss these challenges, as well as the shift in product development
toward the interface as a product and the pitfalls of following blanket
design guidelines.

This will be a discussion-based talk with a healthy mix of case studies.
