Coming up on April 13, 2006 from 6:30-8:30 pm, the NYC IxDA chapter
will be holding it's next event - Wirefarm - where we'll be featuring
10-minute presentations from local designers, each showing off
current best practices in prototyping. We already have several
presentations, but we are looking for a few more volunteers who would
like to share their work and ideas.

If you are interested in giving a short (10-minute) presentation on
your techniques, please e-mail a short proposal to nyc (at) ixda
(dot) org. Please include the tool you intend to use and the type of
prototype you would like to demonstrate.

If you're interested in attending the event, there's still space

Finally, we're still looking for a corporate sponsor to provide
refreshments at the event. The benefit to the sponsor is that they
have an open forum with about 50 great interaction designers to speak
about their company, open job opportunities, or anything else they'd
like to advertise to the group. If you know of anyone who would be
interested in donating refreshments (which costs about $250 at most),
please have them contact us at nyc (at) ixda (dot) org as soon as
