“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

About the Talk:

There’s been a lot of talk about Rich Internet Applications (RIA) over the last few years. When the topic was first raised through the release of Flash MX’s change in focus from an interactive animation development studio, to an application development environment there was an early
conversation about trying to define what a RIA is. Then as other players tried to enter the field a bit more ferociously the conversation has turned towards how. Not in terms in of design, but rather in terms of technology. Little care has been given to the more sensitive topic of what and why.

In this presentation, David is going to move beyond the usual story of patterns, code, and tips and tricks, and talk more about aesthetics, experience design, brand, and total environmental context of use. He’s going to layer those elements over a discussion around trying to define
“richness” in the context of general application design and then try to apply it to a continuum of various types of computer and network based solutions.

David has given this talk at the UI12 conference and will soon be appearing at the IA Summit 2007. He is offering the talk to us at this free IxDA event. If you can’t catch David’s talk at those two venues, be sure to join us at this event and have some RIA fun!
