Comprehensive research on a local community, for local communities

If you're a local leader, and you've ever felt like you see the same people at every meeting, or you only see different people at every meeting and they've never heard of IxDA, or you're tired of running meetings but there's no-one to take over, this is for you.

If you attend local meetings, and you've ever felt like your local group doesn't meet enough, or the topics aren't relevant enough, or it's hard to find a job in town, or you don't know enough people, or you're the smartest person in the room all the time, or everything is always over your head, this is for you.

What a great conference Midwest UX was!


Midwest UX (http://midwestuxconference.com/) ended yesterday afternoon. What a fabulous conference! Check out the site for the details of who spoke (full disclosure: I was honored to do a 20-minute segment). Soon they'll post slides of folks' materials there as well, or look on Slideshare.

An excellent mix of speakers, activities, workshops, and after-events. Reminded me of the first IxDA conference in Savannah.

Guidance for local leaders?

I'm curious if IxDA has any official guidance for local leaders, or is this just completely ad hoc?

I'm happy to wing it, but if there are any by-laws, organizing principles, governing structures, or efforts to impose consistency from above, I'd love to know about them.

Swansea Local Group

I hope this is posted in the right place, but apologies if not and
admin feel free to remove...

I'll be moving back to the UK for my PhD in September and was
wondering if there is a local group, such as the one here in
Shanghai, in or near Swansea. I've had a look at the map and it
seems that the UK is lacking in local groups, with only 3 listed...

If not then I guess my closest will be the start-up one in
Birmingham, but not exactly within walking or biking distance!

Setting up local group in Birmingham, UK

Hello. I have taken the first step of starting a local group in
Birmingham, UK. I am now looking for IxDA folk in the local area who
will be interested in helping me get this up and running. I will be
looking to represent the Midlands as this is the only local group in
the area.

I would like to hear from local leaders from other areas to hear how
you grew your local area. What challenges did you face? What has
worked well? What has not worked so well?

[Event] Chicago IxDA - Oct. 10th - Design Pattern Libraries

If you're in the Chicago-land area, please join us for our first
topic-oriented event!

Topic: The 'WHAT', 'WHY' and 'HOW' of design pattern libraries
No one seems to be talking about pattern libraries these days, so we thought
we'd be the first to... oh, wait.
Ok, so everyone is talking about them. But WHAT are they? WHY are they worth
our consideration? HOW do you create and utilize one (and how far do you
have to go for it to be useful)?

Presenter(s): You...and the well-stocked audience.
This is not the event where you will only hear one perspective on this

NYC IxDA Event: Alex Wright, NY Times, Sept. 27th

NYC IxDers,

It's time for another NYC IxDA event, hot on the heels of event
announcements in Philly, Waterloo, San Francisco, and Boston. This month in
New York, Alex Wright, an Information Architect at the New York Times, will
talk about the technological limitations we face on the web, and about the
Interaction Design lessons that we can learn from the precursors to the web
to help get around them.
