Ruminating an idea: Interest in a conference on Interaction Design Education

For the last bit I have been thinking about creating a separate conference that focuses on interaction design education. By no means is this an academic/research conference, but rather a summit, working group, that is interested in tackling the life-long issues of an interaction designer's career. I moved from industry to education because I saw deep issues in the career development of interaction designers, especially at the early stages of formal educaiton and have grown to hear a must wider perspective on the topic.

Announcing the (Phase 1) winners of the IxD12 Student Design Challenge

Early-bird-priced ticket for Interaction12

Hello IxDA peeps,

Long time no speak! Hope everybody's doing very well. I have an early-bird-priced ticket (575 euros) for Interaction12 that it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to use. I'm heart-broken to break my streak of attending all the Interaction conferences to date, but c'est la vie....Transferring registration from me to you is perfectly OK according to the conference website.

Web Information Visualization Tool


I am surveying tools for interactive web information visualization, which is not too technical for class project but still feasible enough to be applied to practical project.

I guess Flex or Flare would not be compatible anymore alogn with the declination of Flash ActionScript (is this correct...?). Then Processing would be a reasonable tool to start information visualization with? What do you think a good interactive visualization tool that can be applied to senior design course project with technical compatibility as well as design flexibility?
