Countdown to MIX09: Design Is the New Black

Mar 3, 2009 By

Wanna be inspired? Listen to Bill Buxton talk about user experience and design for just 10 minutes, and then you won’t be able to sign-up fast enough for MIX09 in anticipation of his keynote at the conference. This guy is just too nifty for words. He’s the author of Sketching User Experiences: Getting the Design Right and the Right Design, is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research and has a 30 year involvement in research, design and commentary around human aspects of technology, and digital tools for creative endeavors, including music, film and industrial design. Prior to joining Microsoft, he was a researcher at Xerox PARC,a professor at the University of Toronto,and Chief Scientist of Alias Research and SGI Inc, where he was a co-recipient of an Academy Award for Scientific and Technical Achievement! More information on Buxton and his work can be found at:, or you could just come to MIX09 and meet this cool dude in person.
