Dear Colleagues!

IXDA Oslo is finally under way, and we want to start by inviting our fellow Interactionists to an after-work beer at Soria Moria Bistro on Wednesday March 10th.

We want to use this opportunity to meet the IXD community in Oslo and get your input on what IXDA Oslo should be and how we best can create a social and professional platform for Interaction Designers in and around Oslo.

Enlist your interest on http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=362653581833&ref=mf so we have an idea about how many people will attend.

Hope to see you there!
IXDA Oslo

Date: 10 March
Time: 19:30
Location: Soria Moria Bistro & Bar, Vogts gate 64 (Torshov)

Hi Niklas,

With your Facebook event listing in place, you're probably not interested in this feature right now, but IxDA members can now create events on the new IxDA.org. And if you have a local group here, you can manage the RSVPs and do other administrative tasks around event management, too. Even without having a local group on the website, you can go to http://www.ixda.org/local/events and click "Create new event". If you don't associate the event with a specific local group then it will simply appear in the public, global list of events; by default all events are displayed globally, which is a nice thing for the community to be able to see. :)

Have a good meet-up! If you want to have an IxDA local group site, please contact Kevin Silver, kevin(at)kevintsilver.com.

Cheers,

Liz

Hi Liz,

Thanks for your reply. To be honest i haven't had time to get a full overview over the new and improved ixda.org. We are very interested in using the new site as vigorously as possible, and will definitely look into these features on the new site. The book of faces is not really an elegant or suitable tool for the job.
I will contact Kevin ASAP.

All the best from the fjordlands, and congratulations with the new site!

Niklas

Hello,

Creating a subgroup or local group on IxDA.org seems like a very good idea! Smile 
So far, I am not on the Facebook (for several reasons) - but I would very much like to meet with other interaction designers in Oslo. I work as an interaction designer in Oslo myself, and getting in touch with others in similar positions would be great.

Can I enlist just with this comment? Smile 
I'll be at Soria Moria Bistro on Wednesday next week.

Isabella
