IxDA Stockholm anyone?

I sent out a general invitation today for a first face to face meeting for IxDers in the Stockholm area. It’ll be on the 17th of november at a place called Allmäna Galleriet 925. I’m hoping it will turn out to be a tradition. Time will tell…

IxDA

Totally forgot to mention this here. For me this is a momentous shift in my ~10-year history as an interaction designer. I had a similar feeling last year this time when I dsicovered http://www.ixdg.org. What was then IxDG, about a week ago became IxDA (Interaction Design Association) http://www.ixda.org. Basically it is a way of uniting Interaction design practitioners in a way that usability specialists, informations architects and alikes has done long ago. Uniting in a way so that I ultimately will get a stronger position in my profession as interaction designer. For example will be able to more convincingly and defined communicate my area of work and ways of working and hopefully in a longer run it will strengthen my position when negotiating my pay. Anyway happy birthday IxDA!

I am currently communicating with David at IxDA about starting a Swedish IxDA chapter… we’ll see how things evolve.

Here we go again…

I kinda like this flock thing. I’ll give it a try for a while and see. I’ve tried blogging before but never really got the hang of it. I’m not your average ‘want to be heard on the web’ guy. I’d really more like to be able to save interesting articles n’stuff…. and this, i suspect/hope, is what flock will enable me to do more easily :)

If you happen to stumble upon this blog, I’m an interaction designer with a very curious and exploring way of thinking, something I hope this blog over time will reflect.
