Hi everyone. I have to cancel my plans to be at Interaction 12. This is unfortunate for me after a year of planning for Dublin, but lucky for you if you waited to register: My ticket is yours at the 575 euro Early Bird discount rate (full conference rate is 650 euros).

This means the registration to Interaction12 is now 21% cheaper than before! Don't worry, if you've already booked, you'll be getting a refund for the VAT portion of your payment in the next couple of weeks.
I read in the Board of Directors post that IxDA is in the
process of selecting a location for Interaction 12. There was a list of
