Dear DesignX'er

we are a community of scholars and our interaction, esp. DesignX but also CDR is what we make of it.

Let us try to initiate a culture of being involved and taking on responsibility. In this sense I have taken the liberty to set up a table indicating every active and in-residence members of DesignX (defined by being in the DesignX-Lab list, please ask if you want to be added/removed/changed to DesignX-Broadcast) AND his or her current commitment to DesignX and CDR. Find the current state of the arts in the table below ...

MOST IMPORTANT AND URGENT, WE NEED folks to sponsor DesignX events next quarter ... don't forget to reserve a pre defense slot to practice!

PS We have $50-75 for drinks and food available, please contact Anneliese.

... there are may projects where DesignX/CDR could need a hand, interior design, IKEA runs, Wiki, audio/video, and much more, please have a chat with me, I assure you we'll find something fitting every character and calendar.

Please change/correct/add/delete stuff - it's a wiki guys ... Thanks for your support!!!

Date: October 12 - Søren Petersen, CEO ingomar&ingomar consulting: Crowd-sourcing Design Research using Social and Online News Media

About the talk

The likelihood that your design research ideas and the framing of these is the best you can do is clearly zero. To reduce the risk of being blindsided from the get-go and experiencing disastrous surprises at the end, ask the crowd. Here, proactive use of social media and online news media is an excellent tool. In this discussion we will examine how the use of LinkedIn, Facebook and The Huffington Post can be leveraged to improve your understanding of a domain by harvesting other professionals and “normal human beings” ideas and knowledge.
