While the Ivrea Institute for Interaction Design is gone, its legacy
is alive and well. http://is.gd/4yXk (Core77.com article).
I have to say that the people I've met connected to IIID were some of
the best, brightest and most thoughtful Interaction Designers I've
met. I'm sorry this resource is gone, as I think it was something
special. I wonder if anyone can really recreate it.
