Yup! i'm going to do it. Just like people did for SxSW, I'm going to do it here too.

Myself and Kevin Silver (2 people who have put a ton of sweat into ixDA over the years) have talks that need your votes in order to be presented at Microsoft's annual MIX event (#mix11). This is an event that is a great space for us to push IxD into the developer community. There are other talks that fill that space as well, so take a look after you vote for me and Kevin. Here are direct links to our talks.

  • It's How Ya Move That Thing: http://live.visitmix.com/OpenCall/Vote/Session/109
  • Sketching: The Secret Sauce of Design: http://live.visitmix.com/OpenCall/Vote/Session/108
  • Ensuring a Consistent User Experience for Enterprise Software: http://live.visitmix.com/OpenCall/Vote/Session/172
Remember you can vote once per session per browser per OS. So if you Download every browser (IE, Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Rockmelt, etc.) for each OS, that's a lot of voting power!
Thank you in advance for your support.

There are some other IxD/UX talks from lessor known folks (like me!) to vote for as well:

The User Experience Process in the Real World http://live.visitmix.com/OpenCall/Vote/Session/41

Abstract: A well-defined user-centered design (UCD) process makes it possible to create innovative, engaging and usable designs. Typical UCD processes assume quick stakeholder consensus, easy access to users, and ample time to carry out user research and design iterations. In reality, practitioners usually have to be more flexible with the UCD process and embrace constraints such as compressed timelines, technical limitations, and limited access to users. A well-defined process can adapt to these common pressures while consistently producing innovative and usable designs. After providing an overview of the typical UCD process, I will explain how we have come to adapt these methods for projects with a variety of constraints. We will look at some examples of projects Infragistics has worked on, including work we have done to design and develop novel shells for LightSwitch.

Thanks, Joel Eden, PhD

Best of luck, Dave, Kevin, and Joel.  If people are looking for other ixda-ish / UX-related talks to vote for (you can vote for 10 total), I whipped up a bookmarklet last night to filter the list of 207 proposals based on topic:  http://huah.net/jason/mix11/opencall-bookmarklet.html

MIX is a great conference; I've been the past two years. With designer involvement, it will continue to be very design -friendly and cover more UX/UCD topics.  I hope your proposals make it!

full disclosure: I'm also proposing a talk on user research methods</plug>

It's great to see so many IxDA / UX folks give talks at Mix.  I'm really looking forward to them.

 I also have to say that I'm plugging for my talk.

"What Software Can Learn from the World of Magic" 

Abstract: 

Magicians have know for centuries how the human mind works and use those concepts to amaze and delight their audiences. They understand that it's not about mis-direction but about direction. They know that their effect must have a purpose.We'll look at some concepts from the realm of magic and how to apply those concepts to create better experiences and improve your software.

Here's the link: http://bit.ly/MagicAtMix11 or http://live.visitmix.com/OpenCall/Vote/Session/62 

Also we'll be planning a meetup at Mix11 this year.  We'll post details closer to the event.

 

Cheers,

Sean

I just read you blog post on “There is no [IxD] –Neo"

I think it is very interesting and I agree. If fact I am in the process of writing an article titled "Interactive Design is Dead" and it mirrors your thoughts somewhat but from a very different (interacTIVE designer's) point of view. I will share it will you once I am done.

Good stuff.

The industry is redefining itself before our very eyes.

Interesting take, so IxDA is really just a way of thinking through problems and also to come up with new ideas that can be applied to design? 
Have you read Bret Victor's "Magic Ink" article which discusses the problem with interactivity? http://worrydream.com/MagicInk/#interactivity_considered_harmful 
I really like his writings and his explanations take the misty layer off of IxDA.
