Imagine a new IxDA - Maybe not 1.0, but can't happen at all w/o you!


I took the liberty to tell a story. As a big believer in the power of
storytelling I wanted to tell a story about what conan (our project for IxDA
could be). the current plan has the necessary infrastructure to achieve that
linked story, and will have many of the other design considerations
necessary to get there.

I hope you will join me in supporting this effort and making Conan (our new
IxDA web site) come into being!

BTW, what's your story? What do YOU want to see? What do you hope for?

Goodbye Day 2, Hello Day 3!

How quickly the time passes!

We are 1/3 of the way into Day 3 of "Give a Little Back", and because of it
we must now pick up the pace.
We are incredibly thankful for the amount we have raised so far, $8,970,
just about 30% of our goal. The best part about this? 440 of you are the
reason why we are where we are.

Interfaces for Getting Attention of Infants

Does anyone have recommendations or references for how to design an
interface so that it draws the attention of infants and young

production? Additionally, how do you share your design ideas with others
effectively at each stage of the design process?

Come hear Qixing Zheng from Microsoft introduce a new component in
Expression Blend 3, called SketchFlow.

We are fast approaching the end of Day 2 of the IxDA "Give a Little Back"
support drive. Thank you to the 405 people who have shown such great
support, raising almost $8,000 for this important initiative.

We have reached 25% of our goal, so we still need your help. Please spread
the word to your IxDA-appreciative friends and colleagues! Let them know why
you chose to support, it is very powerful coming from you.

More interesting incentives to come!
