Kim Goodwin - Each One, Teach One


We all have reason to be proud of the progress our profession has made in recent years. Awareness of (and demand for) interaction design is at an all-time high. We have better job opportunities and better salaries than ever before. Product managers, engineers, and other stakeholders are increasingly drawn to interaction design’s promise: more successful products and services, greater customer loyalty, and more efficient and effective processes.

Robert Fabricant - Behavior is our Medium


Robert Fabricant talks about Interaction Design as a practice beyond just computing technology. He gives examples of Interaction Design as far back as ancient history, all the way to a humanitarian project underway today. He shows that Interaction Design's primary medium is behavior, extending far past the high technology world into the realm of human behavior and relationships.

Updates and News for interaction'09|vancouver

Hi Folks,

We are 21 days away from the conference and we are getting excited.
There is still room in all of the workshops but they are filling up
fast. We also are closing in on capacity so don't delay....sign up now!

A couple of announcements:

Genevieve Bell had to withdraw from the schedule for unforeseen
circumstances. Although we are sad that we have lost her talk we are
happy to announce that we will now be able to elevate Robert Fabricant's
highly anticipated talk, "Irrational Behavior" to a keynote.

Volunteers for interaction09|vancouver

Hi Community,

The conference team has tried hard to keep the cost of attending
Interaction'09|Vancouver as low as possible. We are aware that the cost
of the conference is still too high for some members of the community
who would like to attend. So we have come up with an idea to help you
and also help us with the conference. We need 30 volunteers to help us
out during the 4 days we are in Vancouver. If you are willing to lend us
8 hours of time to help run the conference over the 4 days we are
together we will give you a 50% discount.

Interaction'09|vancouver Update!

Hi All,

We are 2 months away from Interaction'09|Vancouver. A couple of updates:

New this year will be the addition of a "Tangible Interaction Café". The team planning this environment has some surprises for all including a MS Surface Table. It will be a great opportunity for those of us attending to play hands on with emerging devices and meet each other.

If you are planning on going and have not signed up yet please do so soon. It will help the planning team with our final arrangements for the event. We have room for 600 this year (50% more space than last year).
