I’m working on a little project about IxDA (The Interaction Design Association). As one of its primary founders, I often am in a position to represent IxDA to a much wider audience, or to communicate with other communities as a non-official representative. It’s an awkward position to be in, but it is also fun (I must admit).
That being said, I am very aware that my view of IxDA is warped by my personal experience. So before this next venture I’m about to begin, I’d like some perspective for you all.
Below in the comments please add your story. What has IxDA meant to you? Is there a story where the context of IxDA helps shapes some sort of epiphany, relationship, business transaction, design, joy, etc. that would not have existed at all or as easily with out IxDA in the picture?
I look forward to your stories. Be as brief or as long as you want. Some of these stories in part or in whole may be used in the project I’m working on.
And THANX! in advance.
