Over the last few days we have been experiencing email sending issues due to our SMTP server. I hope it will be resolved quickly, but until then there could be a long delay in receiving email notifications of new discussion posts.
We are moving to new hosting tomorrow evening (April 20th, 2012). At around 7pm the Discussions forum will be closed for a couple hours as we migrate all our archives and data to the new host. Later that evening the new site should be up and ready to go including many great improvements to the site.
Let us know if you have any questions or need assistance during the transition.
On February 4 2012 the new Board of Directors took effect. In doing so we said farewell to three Directors: Kendra Shimmell, Joe Sokohl, and our out-going President, Janna DeVylder.
Joe Sokohl has served on the Board of Directors for the past 2 years, filling roles in Communications and most recently as Secretary. He has worked energetically to engage with the broader UX community, strengthening our connections with other associations around the world.
The Interaction|12 conference was held in Dublin, Ireland on Feb 1-4. The event represents one of the major highlights of the Interaction Design calendar, and sees people from around the world gather together to connect, share and learn.
Hi IxDA members, friends, and discussion participants!
We're currently putting the final touches on an update to IxDA.org that is in some ways subtle, but has a few larger changes included. As we've all noticed over the last few years, some things about our current web platform work well and other haven't worked that well. The goal with the next release of IxDA.org is to fix some of these issues, make a few changes to functionality, and get us onto a new hosting and maintenance platform that will make all future updates much easier.
I want to take this opportunity to point people to our two new Silver sponsors for Interaction12 | Dublin.
First, I am really excited that SapientNitro have upgraded their sponsorship from Recruiter to Silver. There will be more annoncements soon about how they plan to add to the conference experience for attendees. Their upgrade significantly increases their contribution to the conference and demonstrates their commitment to the IxDA community. Thank you!
