Companies / Agencies that do service design or tangible stuff?


I'm at the start of my XDA path really, and am wrapping up graduate school applications. I'm really interested in doing tangible interaction and service design. I am wondering if anyone knows of companies or firms that do this kind of work? I'm looking to connect with interaction designers in LA who are also interested in this type of design. Thanks a bunch!

Conversation around the IxDA Awards

Here's the link to the short list and finalists and winners of the IxDA Awards: http://awards.ixda.org/entries/

Steve Baty during the closing ceremonies of the conference said that we do these awards and similar initiatives to create a discourse in the community about them. I know I have little conversations here and there about them, but I don't see it happening in a way that moves things; that impacts the larger group. So I'll put this out here.
