  • 2. ACTION CIID Take Action at Reboot11 DESIGNERS FOR ACTION CIID SET UP AN OPEN INTERACTION DESIGN LAB The Interaction Design Pilot Year hosted an open lab throughout the 2-day Reboot conference. The idea was for students to act as consultants//designers/ prototyping gurus/partners on any random ideas that conference participants wanted to share. Any ideas produced are open source and were displayed on a big wall at the venue and published in the Reboot book and on the website. This was the first time Reboot tried this open lab approach. It was an experiment but almost immediately a good synergy was struck and a dialogue between the conference participants and the students evolved naturally. The lab was located smack-bang in the middle of the venue, so in line with the theme for this years conference - it was action stations from the word go. The following pages are a diary of our Reboot experience.
