Those who are interested in Icograda and its relation to interaction
design, please check out the daily reports from the recent Icograda
congress in Japan last month:

I have picked up only the ones directly relevant to interaction design,
but there are other nice talks too...

What do folks think of this?
Aren't there more than two design disciplines?
I tossed the above out to see what thoughts might emerge. Interesting
that some folks came back to defend the orgs. I surely wasn't suggesting
that these orgs should be consulting with us before moving forward.
There were some other topics that I hoped would emerge though:
1. Are these two disciplines, graphic and industrial design, the roots
of all design disciplines? Did they spawn from architecture?

2. Some of us are so distant from these organizations that they are
meaningless. Why is this so? As a result can they adequately speak for
all of design? Can design have one voice anyway?
Any thoughts...?
