Scott Klemmer and I would like to invite you to participate in a special issue of Human-Computer Interaction on Understanding Design Thinking. The timeline is below. This announcement includes some initial thoughts. Treat this description as an opening: what this issue becomes is really up to you. I encourage you to contact us with any questions or ideas.
I'm wondering what you think about the DIY Design movement and the momentum that it seems to be picking up, particularly in places like Portland. Do you see it a relevant to you and your career/future? Do you even feel like you have a complete understanding of what it means and the entrepreneurial component involved? Will it really open doors or will it just muddy the waters between GOOD design and junk?
IDSA is devoting a whole conference to it in August... What do you think? Would you go to get the inside scoop from people like John Hoke and John Jay among others?
