IxDA is very excited to announce that registration is open for the IA Summit
this year, see information below.

We are excited because IxDA has put together a Pre-conference event called
the Interaction Design Symposium (see below). We are very excited that in
particular Kim Goodwin (Cooper) and Luke Wroblewski (FunctioningForm.com &
Yahoo) will be doing seminars along with David Heller, Lisa deBettencourt,
and Frank Ramirez. This full-day event will be great for both novice and
intermediate practitioners who want to beef up their overall Interaction
Design skills.

See you there!!!
