The social web is broken. Facebook, Foursquare, Instagram, Pinterest,
Tumblr, Path, whatever, app or web… you name it. They’re all the same:
instantly interesting, lastingly boring. All we’ve got are social
networks that are networked but not social, social media that is media
but not social, social marketing that is marketing but not social, and
social interactions that are interactive but not social. What's the problem? How to fix it? Here are my initial thoughts.
we expect that you have given up on your New Year's resolutions. Things like
giving up drinking, exercising more, eating less cake. IxDA Dublin would like
to invite you to our January Social, with minimum exercise required and
with drink available for you, to set your 2011 design resolution. We
will have a design resolution board for everyone to be made publicly
accountable for your resolutions, along with the normal IxDA social and the
announcement of the new Dublin local leaders.
Summer's not over. There's still time left to play!
Join IxDA NYC for some interactive discussion and summer fun at the Shake Shack
in Madison Square Park on Wednesday, August 4th. Plus, meet the IxDA New York local leaders and
give us your thoughts on our past, present and future programming!
