Re: IDSA NED...how'd we do?

Claire, I thought the NED was excellent. Being a WestCoast guy it's the first time I've been to a NED, but I was impressed. The speakers were great. Radicalmedia was totally awesome (I've already checked out the JohnnyCashProject.com site) and the guy from QUIRKY.com was fabulous also (I'm hoping he...

Re: What has IDSA done lately - Part 2 Case Studies

Someone can spend the time and $ to make a good case study and give it to IDSA for 0$. Or, with todays webpublishing, they can go to lulu.com, create it themselves and make x$ for each one they sell. They might even sell more than IDSA if well marketed and posted here on core. Why would anyone give...

Re: What has IDSA done lately - Insurance

"Fatkid" I hope you aren't thinking IDSA ever had anything to do with ID Magazine. That is (sorry, was) a completely separate entity with zero connection to ISDA.

Re: Discussion about the IDSA

Richard Kuchinsky, Sorry, been away from this thread for a few days. I appreciate your helpful opinions and accept your assertion that you aren't angry.

Re: Discussion about the IDSA

rkuchinsky I'm trying to understand your anger. Your statement " but I think the attitude that IDSA is so great and infallible is part of the problem " sounds like a personal opinion but you present it as a fact. Where is that coming from?

Re: Discussion about the IDSA

"IDSA is mostly about conferences (and is loosing [sic] money at it) and membership revenue is small and largely offset by "other." Well, you can't learn everything from looking at a pretty Excel graph. There is no entity that has done more to sell "design" to the corporate boardroom (and the genera...
