“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

today, on twitter I announced I’m quitting IxDA

Not only did I say I quit IxDA, but I also give up the identity of Interaction Designer and the belief that “interaction design” is a discipline of design. Note the new twitter ID.

I’d like to thank the following people for helping me come to this conclusion:

  • Andrei Herasimchuk
  • Jarod Tang
  • Jared Spool
  • Milan Guenther
  • Peter Merholz
  • Joshua Porter
  • J. Ambrose Little
  • Todd Zaki Warfel
  • Chris Fahey
  • Richard Dalton
  • Jesse James Garrett
  • Carl Alivinari

If your name got left out, I’m sorry.
