For the third year in a row IxDA Nederland and Chi Nederland organize
an international conference on interaction design. The event, by the
name of 'Design by Fire 2009', offers an inspiring stage for
interaction, information, interface and experience designers.

The 2009 program is shaping up nicely. We are very pleased with the
speakers who confirmed so far:

* Robert Hoekman, Jr., author of Designing the Obvious, Designing the
Moment and the upcoming Web Anatomy, accepted our invitation to
keynote at this year's conference. He will address the topic of
Interaction Design Frameworks;

* James Box & Cennydd Bowles, UX Designers at Clearleft, will examine
parallels between music and interaction design, including harmony,
genre, rhythm, fashion and emotion;

* Tom Jenkins, working as a Design Specialist in the Service and UI
Design team at Nokia Design, will give suggestions for communicating
new interactions;

* Alrik Koudenburg, a curious and analytical design director, will
talk about the importance to keep taking risks, about getting
comfortable with being uncomfortable to come up with fresh new work;

* Ronald Mannak, founder and CEO at Monodomo (formerly 1uptoys), will
present a case study showing how to develop a successful product with
an innovative user interface and a rich user experience;

* Matt Jones, co-founder and lead designer at Dopplr.com, will
examine how great UX design can maximize the services' benefits and

Like previous years, there will be enough time for the audience to
participate in discussions after each presentation.
