[IxDA] Call for student applications: Masters in Design for Social Innovation, SVA

Hello,
Over the past two or three years I've had conversations with many people on this list (at conferences and workshops, through email, etc.). I gather that *lots* of people in the design / research / interaction / UX / anthrodesign / IA / product / communications bundle of practices are pondering how they can work in areas other than corporate jobs, consumer products and services, etc.

Jon Kolko - Keynote: My Heart is in The Work

Our endeavors are worth pursuing and we approach them with the whole of our hearts. We build the artifacts and frameworks that support engagement, that keep us entertained, aroused, engaged and productive.
