I just wanted to thank everyone for coming to the IxDA conference. I
wanted to thank all the extremely talented speakers, those who
tirelessly organized and put on this conference, and all the attendees
who showed up and made this one of the best conferences I've ever been
to. It definitely met my expectations.

I also wanted to thank everyone who attended and participated in my
prototyping workshop. I hope you guys enjoyed it and learned something—
I had a blast running it.

Dave Malouf and Dan Saffer really put a great deal of effort, energy,
and very little sleep into this conference and it showed. It's been
really inspiring to see this group evolve and start to walk. I'm
looking forward to seeing this group have global impact moving forward.

Again, thanks to everyone, organizers, attendees, and speakers—
whatever you put into getting this thing up and running was completely
worth it!

Cheers!

In theory, theory and practice are the same.
In practice, they are not.

No doubt. My only regret is that I did not get to meet the
interaction squirrel of hope (http://interaction08.crowdvine.com/
profiles/9347) (I didn't post this.)

Dan, Dave and the ixda board did an amazing job. Hard to believe it
was the first conference. It was easily one of the best conferences
I've attended.

This was my first professional conference and it blew away any
expectations I had for the event.
Thank you to everyone. I found myself simultaneously thrilled and overwhelmed -
I hate to admit my introvert tendencies won out in the midst of the
crowds and a flood of information and excitement.
Coming soon: The Moody Loner's guide to design conferences.
Submissions accepted!

While I'm serious about that, I'm also excited about the ideas this
sparked, the handful of people with whom I actually
worked the gumption up to meet and being better prepared to do that
real life interaction thing again soon!

Sincerely yours,
Scott McDaniel

Hey Scott--

That sounds like a great conference session. Seriously. Maybe next
year we can organize a meeting of Moody Loners!

But what if no-one shows up :-)
