It's good to see more IxD geared toward products, artefacts and
services. It's very welcome, especially after the conference. One of
my only low point regarding Interaction'08 was the lack of product-
focused interaction projects (at least the proportion was very low
compared to web stuff). I feel that interaction design is not only web
and software, and David's text is very comforting for me.
By the way, it would have been nice to have a Microsoft's Surface
table at the conference, considering they were Plantinum sponsor. Or
some other tangible demos, units and prototypes. I hope to see more
next year. It's fun to play and fiddle with real stuff :-)
Sincere thanks to everyone who were involved in Interaction'08. It was
a lovely event with tons of great speakers and participants.
