The first meeting for our group was fun and interesting. I met with a number of coworkers from my company and their friends and family who directly do design related work or are interested in UX design.
We discussed a number of topics that we would be interested in tackling as a big group and some ideas for possible workshops that we could do.
Possible topics include:
* the impact of UX design on productivity * preventing group think during ideation * social media interfaces and echo chambers * overly addictive interfaces * UX design and safety in physical machines * poor UX design and how it relates to waste * fear of change * the conflict of user needs and business goals in interface design
Let's hope that some of the people I introduced to the IDF decide to join.
As I make my way around I plan on getting more information and ideas from everyone I meet!
