Newsletter for designers and interactive developers - Issue 5
MIX09 took place a couple of weeks ago. The event brought us a bunch of announcements around rich media and web development technologies. The word of the event was "Experience", with an opening keynote by Bill Buxton, Microsoft Research and Scott Guthrie, Corporate VP.
In this newsletter you will find what you need to learn about these announcements. To good tradition, all content of all MIX09 sessions is available for viewing online or downloading to your computer or device.

Enjoy!
