Hello friends,

We’re happy to confirm our community-driven, July event, VizFarm! IDEO
has graciously agreed to sponsor and host the event on Tuesday, July
29, starting at 6:30pm. Please RSVP and pass on to others:

We’ve received a number of early submissions, but we’ll need many more
to make it a great event. We want the content to be diverse as
possible, so whether you’re doing professional information design or
you’re just excited about a diagram in a recent presentation, we want
to hear from you! No submission is too great or too insignificant. For
the privacy of IDEO’s clients, no photography or video will be
permitted during the presentation (audio recording is allowed) so it’s
a perfect opportunity to present your work that hasn’t yet been


As people and businesses increasingly need to understand and evaluate
vast amounts of information, information visualization has moved from
a research topic to a mainstream technique. It’s now an interaction
designer’s job to express all manner of complex information through
graphics, animations and interactive interfaces.

On July 29, IxDA-SF presents VizFarm, where you can have the
opportunity to share your information visualization work with the
local interaction design community. IxDA-SF will be hosting an evening
of 5-minute presentations from local designers, showing off great
examples of information visualization in practice.

Have you done any information visualization work recently? Interested
in giving a short presentation about the project, your process and the
resulting work? Whether you’re doing professional information design
or you’re just excited about a diagram in a recent presentation, we
want to hear from you! Please email your proposal to sf-local at
ixda.org describing the project, type of visualization work you
performed and examples if possible.

We’re looking forward to a great event! :)

Hello Friends!

This is a reminder that VizFarm will be happening next Tuesday at
IDEO. There are a few important things to note, important enough to
warrant busting out the CAPS, and even a few exclamation points.

%u2022 YOU MUST RSVP TO ATTEND!!! We have a hard cap of 100 people,
including presenters and organizers. That means we will only allow 80
attendees, all of which must either have RSVP'd on upcoming
http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/872188 or to sf-local (at) ixda (dot)
org. If you are not on the list, you will likely not get in. If you
will not be attending, please remove your name from the guest list,
so another guest may take your spot.

work being presented is not yet out in the wild. In the interest of
client privacy, we will not allow any type of recording. Some of the
images may be included in a Slide Share presentation after the event.

Thanks for your cooperation. We're really looking forward to seeing

- IxDA SF Co-Chairs Dani Malik, Joshua Kaufman, Kim Lenox
