“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.” - Steve Jobs

IxDA begins pledge drive and announces Project Donahue

Today the treasurer of IxDA, Greg Petreoff, had the honor of announcing our new pledge drive to make some dough before the end of year to support IxDA’s project donahue initiative.

Project Donahue is exciting because for the first time in the UX community an organization is putting its resources behind inventing its own virtual community software, transforming the traditional discussion list into a true knowledge center where people can contribute and consume as always, but also curate, to aid future consumption. See the presentation below to learn more. And go to http://ixda.org/ to donate money to help with this cause, and the other initiatives that IxDA is up to including local events, conference events like the IA Summit pre-conference IxD symposium and others to come.

Again, see the presentation below to learn more about Project Donahue:
