[I'm posting this message for Nico Macdonald [nicolist at spy.co.uk], who
is having trouble posting to the list.

Hi Alexander:

Glad to see IxDA finally getting established in London. We do need
more fora both for socialising and for discussion of work, in the
spirit of 'This happened...', which 'sold out' in two hours, and the
AIGA Experience Design
<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/AIGAExpDesLondon/> events I programmed
from 2000-2006. (In an earlier IxDA push, in 2004, Priya Prakash and
others programmed the talk 'Interaction Designers: Language!' in
London with Marc Rettig, and there is clearly an even greater audience
for such events in 2008.)

On Upcoming, list members may be aware that there is an Interaction
Design group <http://upcoming.yahoo.com/group/2733/> which I moderate.
It has 100+ members and anyone serious about interaction design
discussion and debate is welcome to join. The group description is:

"Talks, seminars and conferences around interaction design, covering
products, software and online interfaces, mobile devices, environments
and services. UK/US-focused"

Events listed in the group are 'content' focused. We don't list social
or business networking events, as these are too common and would
obscure the more significant events. Neither do we list events around
software development, business management, or software launches.

Josh: "[I'm posting this message for Nico Macdonald [nicolist at

On that note, I've had terrible luck posting recently and have since
pretty much given up contributing (not that I had anything of value to
say... (o;) I wonder how many others out there are having the same
issues? I've tried tracking them down with Jeff, but couldnt nail
it alone. I'm pretty sure Lisa posted details of Boston's next
event, but cant see them on the site.

So, if this gets through, among all the other wonderful things
happening with the IxDA this year can we
a) allow new threads from the website
b) do a serious round of ironing out the final few critical bugs?

thanks
