It's that time of the year again, the spring conference season, and I've got a full schedule of appearances on tap for the next few months. Here's a quick rundown:
(that's next week!)
Vancouver: At Interaction 09, I'll be teaching a design patterns workshop with fellow Yahoo Lucas Pettinati and former Yahoo (and founder of the Yahoo! Design Pattern Library) Erin Malone from Tangible UX. This is the shorter, half-day version of our workshop. It's not too late to sign up!
Dallas: At the 18th conference of JA-SIG (an organization of open source communities working in higher education), I'll be giving a keynote called User Experience is Everybody's Business. It's at 8:30 am on Tuesday, so don't stay out too late Monday night if you want to catch it.
Memphis: At the IA Summit, I'll be teaching two workshops and giving a presentation. On Wednesday, March 18, Lucas, Erin and I will be teaching our full-day patterns workshop. People seemed to really like it last year and we've only made it better. On Thursday, March 19, I'm teaching an updated version of the architecture of social websites workshop I did last year with Christina Wodtke from LinkedIn and Joshua Porter from Bokardo. This year Yahoo social platform designer Bryce Glass (and co-author of the upcoming Designing Web 2.0 Reputation Systems from Yahoo! Press) will be joining us. At some point during the conference proper (final schedule not determined yet), Erin and I will be giving a talk on "Designing Social Interfaces: Principles, Best Practices and Patterns for Designing the Social Web" (essentially the topic of our book and wiki).
San Francisco: At the Web 2.0 Expo, Erin and I will be teaching a workshop called (surprise), Designing Social Interfaces: Principles, Best Practices and Patterns for Designing the Social Web on 9:00 am Tuesday.
New York. At the Enterprise Search Summit, I'll be moderating a panel on Emergent Social Search Experiences, featuring Rob Spiro from the Mechanical Zoo, Susan Chun from Steve.Museum, and Christina Wodtke from LinkedIn.
