While the Ivrea Institute for Interaction Design is gone, its legacy
is alive and well. http://is.gd/4yXk (Core77.com article).
I have to say that the people I've met connected to IIID were some of
the best, brightest and most thoughtful Interaction Designers I've
met. I'm sorry this resource is gone, as I think it was something
special. I wonder if anyone can really recreate it. I know there are
some trying (mentioned in the article).
I'd love to hear from grads, faculty and staff (if any) on the list
their thoughts about Ivrea and what made it so special and why hasn't
another institution been able to really replicate it. Or maybe I'm
wrong, and there are others, and then I'd love to hear about which
ones are doing it and what they're up to.
