ixDA get together at Adaptive Path UX Week (and DC local chapter)

Since many of us are going to be there, anyone interested in getting
together for a few drinks or something?

command channel. I think many of us "old hands" expected that voice-
based interfaces would be far more common by 2008 than they are.

always places to improve the user experience:
