Hi Giles! I've really enjoyed your presentations to our team. See you there.
A limited number of digital photos (as opposed to the Polaroid photos we were also shooting!) on Facebook. Feel free to add your photostream to the list. http://tr.im/oEup
What plans are there to get attendees using this Crowdvine site? I've tweeted about it...have you? What percentage of attendees can we hope for on here? 50%? 75%? Lyle
Folks who are actively volunteering for the User Experience Network are gathering at 5pm on Thursday (location TBD) to touch base on what is going on with UXnet and the user experience profession overall. Very informal. It is rare that you get meet your "virtual colleagues" face-to-face... If you are a UXnet volunteer and I have not already invited you to this meeting, then I apologize. You are also welcome to attend. We also welcome anyone else ... [read more]
I am traveling with my family to Portland (girl, girl, boy, wife, kids age range 7-15). They are planning on doing their own thing while I am at the UPA conference, but if there is something they would enjoy, then I will let them tag along. I looked at the program and nothing jumped out at me. When we were in Boston for CHI, we did find one evening where they found something fun for them - see http://www.flickr.com/photos/keithinstone/3422978310/... [read more]
Attendance pretty sparse, so I wanted to gather thoughts! Thought starters: 1) What problems have you faced in making decisions/suggestions? 2) How do you ensure legacy users are able to easily learn to use the new version? 3) Is the term 'usable' relative? 4) How do you make the tradeoff b/t potentially alienating legacy users and creating software that follows 'good principles'? Thanks!
Hi, Jennifer - good to see a Marriott person at the event. Let's catch up at one of the coffee breaks.
Another case where we cannot drive 2 hours to say hello, we have to fly across the country. Geesh.
Hi, yes, you will be one of those folks I finally get to meet in person. And I did not have to fly to Germany...
Looking forward to it - will be great to meet you in person too!
Unfortunately, I don't get in until Tuesday night. I'm sure we'll get together at some point though. :]
I'm happy to meet you finally in person:).
I am looking forward to next week.
One of the best things about conferences is to match a face to a name. We are going to encourage more of this at the conference with some old school Polaroid cameras. (We have an exhibition booth and thought we'd do something a bit more fun than hand out brochures). So, speakers especially - we'd love to snap your photo and pin it up on our boards. It will mean people can find you more easily and hit you up for questions during the breaks. If you... [read more]
Hi Kyle, When do you get into Portland? Free Tuesday? Will have to buy you that drink we owe you.
Hi Lacey - great to see you will be attending UPA! It'd be great to meet you in person.
Hi Amanda - really looking forward to finally meeting you in person!
Hey Amy~ I'm looking forward to finally catching one of your presentations!
Hi Kyle! Pysched to see you in Portland. Maybe next time we'll be in New England.
Hi Julie! It'll be nice to see you again at UPA.
OK, I am not too shy to wait for someone else to start the first discussion. The problem is I have no idea what the first discussion should be about. (^:
