At the Webmaster Jams conference back in September I gave a talk on how classic design movements influence Web design. I've posted the presentation on SlideShare and I'm working on getting a version annotated with audio so it makes a bit more sense.
But I'll take this opportunity to say that I'll be presented another version of this presentation at the IxDA conference that is focused on how classic design influences our practice of interaction design.

My IxDA talk will focus on this:
Classic Design Movements and IxD: Kissing Cousins?
De Stijl, Bauhaus, Futurism. The short history of design is filled with a lexicon of terms and movements that inspire designers of today. What do these classic movements in design history have to do with User Experience and Interaction Design in the creation of software, Web sites, products and services design?
See how much our past is influencing present and future conventions around form, function and simplicity in design and how and why you should incorporate these principals into your own work. This session will highlight the most influential design movements that impact our work and give a foundation of the language and patterns that emerged from these movements.
