Hi Everyone,
Here is an Update on the Conference Planning for '09.
We have the Crowdvine social network space up and running on the
interaction'09|vancouver website. Crowdvine was a very popular part of
the '08 conference experience. See it at:
http://www.interaction09.crowdvine.com/
We have an interaction09 twitter account: @interaction09, join to stay
in touch

Dates to Remember:
Deadline for lighting round speaker submissions is August 31, (you can
now apply to speak at the conference directly on the website at:
http://www.interaction09.ixda.org/program.php )
Full Program Announcement and opening of conference registration will be
October 1
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for the event you can

We are now less than 30 days away from interaction'09|vancouver, the best design conference of 2009.

We have a couple of updates:

1. Some of you have asked, (mostly locals in Vancouver), if it would be possible to take a workshop without going to the rest of the conference. We are opening that option on the registration page. Choose the new workshops only option and then select a workshop. We have room in all of the workshops except Dan Saffer and Bill DeRouchey's Gestural Interface Workshop which is sold out.

2. We are going to be smaller than we originally planned so those who are coming are in for a treat. If your waiting to buy your ticket, sign up now. Register here at: http://interaction09.ixda.org/registration.php

3. Please consider staying at our conference hotels. You will be close to the action and helping us make our commitments to them. They are both great hotels and right next to each other.

Check out the schedule and the conference's social network at: http://interaction09.crowdvine.com/calendar

Finally, if you are considering a conference for 09 take a look at the value you will get with interaction'09|Vancouver. It costs half of the other programs that are out there and the line-up of speakers we have this year is just stellar. New this year we will have a Microsoft surface table in the Tangible Interaction Café that will let us all connect to each other, plus you will get to meet, network and party with all of your favorite IxDA friends and family.

It is all about the tribe! Can't wait to see all of you in Vancouver!!!

I want to second Greg's call to come. I'm super excited to attend, and I'm
speaking about a topic I care about and have spent the last couple years
studying: how interface affects viral activity on social sites. more than
ever, I think design execution is the difference between a site getting
users, and a site being an empty hallway devoid of life.

I know Erin Maloen and Christian Crumlish's workshop will be awesome because
I spied on it once before when it was being given next to one of mine. ;)
And Dan Brown is an amazing speaker too-- his talk 5 years ago on CMS's
changed my thinking radically forever on workflow. And that's just off the
top of my head on non-headliners.

Also, I'd love to meet up with folks there! if you are going, ping me on
twitter @cwodtke
