IxDA State College is pleased to announce it will soon be holding its inaugural meeting. State College is located in scenic central Pennsylvania.

Our featured speaker will be Marc Rettig of Fit Associates in Pittsburgh. Marc described the event eloquently when he wrote,

“This is the inaugural meeting of the State College chapter of the Interaction Design Association. That's a big deal, because it means this place -- a place full of students, educators, leaders and leaders-to-be – now has a home for a very important conversation. Interaction design is sometimes undersold as being about web sites or software interfaces. No, it’s bigger than that. It’s really about working with The Stuff of Life: conversations and relationships between people, between people and their tools, between people and their institutions.

Life is filled with and largely defined by these interactions. Interaction design represents a shift from designing 'things' to designing for positive differences in life's relationships and conversations.”

So please join us for Marc's presentation on improving life through interaction design. We will start the evening with casual discussion over drinks and hors d'oeuvres sponsored by West Arete Computing. There will be a chance to learn more about IxDA and to win a free copy of Donna Spencer's newly released book, A Practical Guide to Information Architecture. And while we can't provide dinner, those who are interested may join us for a casual dinner afterwards.
