Jon Kolko - Keynote: My Heart is in The Work

In 1900, Andrew Carnegie quietly declared that his “heart is in the work” – that he had found an endeavor worth pursuing, and that he would passionately follow-through on that endeavor until it was complete. We interaction designers feel that passion on a daily basis, as we’ve found ourselves at the heart of industry, policy, and culture. Our endeavors are worth pursuing and we approach them with the whole of our hearts. We build the artifacts and frameworks that support engagement, that keep us entertained, aroused, engaged and productive.

Paola Antonelli - Talk to Me

Whether openly and actively, or in subtle, subliminal ways, things talk to us, and designers write the initial script that will let us develop and improvise the dialogue.

Ezio Manzini - Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability

  1. In the last decades we have been witnessing a growing wave of social innovation. A multiplicity of institutions, enterprises, non-profit organisations, but also and most of all, individual citizens and their associations have been capable to move outside the mainstream models of living and producing and to invent new and sustainable ones.
  2. Social innovation is driven by diffuse creativity and entrepreneurship. That is, by resources that, in a densely populated and highly connected world, are very abundant (if only they are recognized and valorised).

Dave Gray - A Grammar for Creativity and Innovation

We’re moving from an industrial to a knowledge economy, where creativity and innovation will be the keys to value. New rules apply. Yet two hundred years of industrial habits are embedded in our workplaces, our schools and our systems of government. How must we change our work practices to thrive in the 21st Century? Dave Gray will share insights from his upcoming book on the work of creativity and innovation, due to be published in the first quarter of 2010.

Why the competition is for individuals?

I have been asked by quite a few folks now, can there be exceptions
for X or Y group b/c that school only does group work?

The answer has to be "No" at this stage in the game. I realize that
a lot of great designs will be missed through this process and maybe
we have learned some lessons along the way as this is the first time
we are doing this.

Interaction 10 Art Exhibition - Call for Submissions

The Interaction Design Association (IxDA) and Savannah College of Art
and Design (SCAD) present the first Interaction Exhibition,
coinciding with the Interaction 10 conference in Savannah, Georgia,
February 4-7 2010. This interaction design-inspired art exhibition
will explore the concept of interaction: between people, with tools,
with technology. What is interaction about — Behavior? Response? Is
it Conscious? Deliberate?  What does “interaction” mean?

We are looking for work that directly addresses these questions.
