I have just been listening to the RSA podcast entitled Designing Interactions named after the title of Bill Moggridge’s new book. During the podcast he was discussing the history of interaction design and its future. Which of course led on to my tutors, Tony and Fiona to discuss the Design Interactions course at the RCA . At the time of the lecture , mid June, I was panicking about establishing my own institute (see previous posts) and only now have managed to get the time to have a listen. I have only just realised the Bill came to visit us whilst i was in the middle of the madness earlier in the year and he was really cool. He was very happy to listen and hear about a few of our projects and give advice as to how we might tackle them. He is definitely into what the Design Interactions course is doing and I wonder maybe if IDEO may be going through a change of some sort, perhaps returning to its more experimental side and expanding its current commercial boundaries that may be holding them back.
