Hi Everyone,

The NYC IxDA is back from its August break! Thanks to all of you who asked
about events while we were out. We've been planning some great events for
the year. We've got a social event coming up to kick off the year, and Dan
Saffer will come speak in October. Please send RSVPs to nyc-rsvp at ixda.org,
and we'll e-mail you location information if there is space left. RSVP
soon-- our events sell out quickly!

_--NYC IxDA Social: Season Kickoff--_
September 21st, 6:30pm
Location provided on RSVP (e-mail nyc-rsvp at ixda.org)

Come by and kick off the 2006 - 2007 season with NYC IxDA. See what everyone
has been up to this Summer, meet old friends, and make new ones!

Greg Petroff, Member of the IxDA Board of Directors & Treasurer, will also
give a short presentation of the IxDA's vision for a new online community of
practice and will show examples of the first steps towards getting there.

__--Beyond Wireframes: Documenting RIAs--__
Presented by Dan Saffer
October 24th, 6:30pm
Location provided on RSVP (e-mail nyc-rsvp at ixda.org)

Our websites have become more functionally rich, thanks to Ajax, Flash, Flex
and the like. But our documentation hasn't kept up. We need rich
documentation to match the rich experiences we're now able to provide
online. In this discussion, we'll explore what wireframes can still do, plus
new forms of documenting including lo-fi animations and state diagrams.

Dan Saffer is a Senior Interaction Designer at Adaptive Path (
http://www.adaptivepath.com/). Dan's book, Designing for Interaction, has
been called a "fresh, accessible and thoughtful guide to interaction design"
(Richard Grefe, Executive Director, AIGA) and "a bookshelf must-have for
anyone thinking of creating new designs" (Jared Spool, CEO of UIE). He
served as the senior interaction designer for Ameritrade, the top online
brokerage. He led the initial redesign of the Ameritrade site, focusing its
features and functionality on active traders.

If you are interested in getting involved with NYC IxDA (we can always use
more hands on deck), please contact us at nyc at ixda.org, or visit our web
site at http://www.ixda.org.

Thanks,
Nasir Barday
NYC IxDA
