“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

Interaction 10 Submissions open


I’m just thrilled pink that Interaction 10 (The 3rd Annual Interaction Design Association (IxDA) conference on Interaction Design) will be coming back to Savannah and being hosted by the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD). Interaction 08 | Savannah was indeed a special moment on so many levels for me: 1st IxDA conference, me being co-chair, and it being the start of my relationship with SCAD. (Videos from interaction 09 | Vancouver are available too.)

It’s return is a testament to the amazing people at SCAD and how much they put into the first event and how much they enjoyed having us. It is also a testament to how much value SCAD sees in the IxDA as the global organization for Interaction Design, how much they value interaction design as a unique and vital design discipline and how much value SCAD themselves has gotten out of their continuing and growing relationship with IxDA.

But right now, it is about you all. Any conference is first and foremost about the content, but content can only be as good as the format and structure and even interactions enabled for creating that content. This year’s co-Chairs @billder & @jlb (Bill Derouchey and Jennifer Bove) have done an amazing job of taking the best parts of previous years and listening to the IxDA community to create some amazing new format options.

Take a look at the great new web site. You will be happily surprised that there is more going on than just a bunch of talking heads. Go on! Take a look!
