Hi Everybody,

Announcing our next IxDA Toronto event, co-hosted by our good friends
the UX Irregulars.

Please RSVP at Upcoming.org if you plan to attend: http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/2119336


Thursday March 12, 2009 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Centre for Social Innovation
215 Spadina Ave.
Toronto, Ontario M5T 2C7 Get Directions
UX Irregulars and IxDA Toronto are holding a joint event this month!

Torontonians who attended the IxDA Interaction '09 conference (http://
interaction09.ixda.org/) will summarize their favourite talks and
themes from the conference to bring a little bit of Interaction '09 to
you.

A taste:

- Sarah Toy will explore the overarching themes of designing for
behaviour and social change
- Steven LeMay will summarize some of the discussion of NUIs,
Microsoft Surface and gestures
- Iain Lowe will talk about design patterns
- Kaleem Khan will talk about Dan Saffer's and Bill DeRouchey's
workshop on designing for touch screens and interactive gestures &
emergent sustainable design themes
- Meredith Noble will review Leisa Reichelt's session on Designing
with Community (with the Drupal.org community)
- Matt Nish-Lapidus will give an overview of Mark Rettig’s keynote on
"How to Change Important Stuff".

We will also screen one of the most inspiring keynotes from the
conference, by Kim Goodwin. She talked about the sustainability of our
profession and how we should be passing our craft on to others,
through mentorship, internships and more.

After the event, we’ll head over to the Rivoli for refreshments and
more discussion.

Everyone is welcome – bring a colleague!

– Matt, Meredith and Kaleem

interactions, but also software, and sometimes crazy things like ski
hills.
