Please join IxDA Pittsburgh for a happy hour in honor of our fearless
leader, Michele Marut.
It was Michele who made the initial post on the IxDA list, asking if
anybody in Pittsburgh would like to have a "face-to-face". On December
20th, 2005, we did just that. Michele and I sat at a table in Caribou
Coffee at the Southside Works and talked about how to get a local
group started. Since that time, Michele has organized many events,
each of which has seen increased attendance over the last.
For our October event, IxDA Los Angeles invites you to a design contest of
sorts. In other words, we're having a Halloween party! Please come dressed
as your favorite website, application or device. There will be a prize for
the most cleverly designed costume. Additionally, we will be breaking into
small teams for a fun, Halloween-themed persona creation contest! If
costumes aren't your thing, the persona creation contest is another
opportunity for you to win a great prize!
These workshops aim to impart training in areas of User Interface Design,
User Research Methods, and Usability Engineering to I.T., Web and
Professional involved in User Interface Requirements Engineering,

Please join us on Wednesday, October 8th for our next Chicago IxDA
Frank Gruger, and his colleagues from Orbitz, will be facilitating a
discussion on Sustainable Interaction Design. As interaction designers we
may have felt immune to the call of sustainability and the green movement.
Up until now it seems to have been largely the concern of architects and
industrial designers connected to the use of green materials.
