This is awesome. Unfortunately I'm still east coast and won't be able to make it, but I'm looking forward to the outcome!

Wish I could make it so I could inject a word on leveraging open source opportunities and potential for interning at Organic ... but I've got other obligations. Hope it goes well!

What will it be like? What should we expect? :)

Hi All-

Wow - great response, we are such an active community!
Here's what to expect: a brief (15 mins) presentation on where the program ramp-up is today, followed by a working session, breaking into small groups, focusing on key skills students should have and key trends for 2014 and beyond, wrapping up with a report back and discussion.

I am looking forward to it and I love the show of support from CCA alums on the RSVP list! :)

I just closed the RSVP.

I agree, a modern tools class should be taught to incoming Freshmen as part of the IxD program -- a program that touches on many other disciplines.


Was brain storming potential class titles;

_ Personalising Your Machine
_ Hacking The Macintosh User Experience
_ Mapping Emerging Communication Structures
_ Prototyping w/ HyperText
_ HTML5
_ Designing The Chrome
_ Modern Tools

Sorry I could not make the event last night. Since I'm building a 'digital school within the agency' over at GS&P it would be great to be involved in the development of this program. Please let me know how I can help!
