As I told Whitney Hess recently, I believe user experience, taken broadly, is everyone's business. Look at the track record of the folks organizing UX London: both personally, and professionally, the Clearleft crew are good eggs and well rounded, hybrid-type, designer-engineers. Add in the calibre (note UK-friendly spelling) of the speakers, and it's clear to me that these people get it in a big way. Look at their beautiful site, with its clean url structure, strong visual design, and smooth third-party integrations: Dopplr, Upcoming, Twitter, Flickr.
The lineup is amazing:
- Eric Reiss, "the Lion of IA," principal of FatDUX, champion of the Euro IA Summit, an always entertaining and thought-provoking speaker, on customer service and copywriting
- Our own LukeW on the redesign of Yahoo.com, the world's most accessed page and how to be more influential in your organization.
- A veritable murderer's row of headliners: Don Norman, Jared Spool, Peter Merholz, Dan Saffer, Leisa Reichelt, Jeff Veen (the Adaptive Path alumni network mafia going strong)
- Donna Spencer, card sorting Aussie IA pioneer, Mags Hanley who, among other things, founded the UX management mailing list hosted by the IAI, and more.
