Discussing "Cadence & Slang" by Disabato

For our December meeting we will be discussing Cadence & Slang by Nick Disabato. Nick is a local Chicago writer and has agreed to join us to talk about his book!

Thanks to Steve Dale at gyro for hosting us! They will have soda, water, and coffee available for us.

Due to scheduling conflicts, we will be meeting at Razorfish this month. Thank you Razorfish!

"Cadence & Slang is a small book about interaction design: a series of rules that advocate simplicity, consistency, and humanity in technology. Funded by its readers and looking really good, Cadence & Slang is a great resource for aspiring designers in any branch of technology... Interaction design is the art and craft of making something easier to use. It's about connecting the experiences of people in the real world to the slang of a mechanical one. The book is organized into seven chapters that cover the problems facing us, and how we can adapt and respond to them."

As always, you are welcome to attend even if you haven't read the book, but since the author has generously agreed to join us for the evening, please make every effort to do so!

    I especially like the round table discussion, good balance of informal talking points with some structure to keep it moving forward for a couple hours. Nick Disabato was very informative and he had a good easy going style public speaker. I look forward to his new edition of the book.

    Gemma — Do you know whether there's any hope of the hardcopy coming back into print in time for this session?

      Hi Jon, I checked with Nick and there are not any hard copies left. I'm sorry!
