Seattle monthly meetup - Tonight! (Tuesday 2/10)

On the 2nd Tuesday of every month, Seattle-area information
architects, user-centered designers, librarians, technical writers,
and usability folk meet up at the Elysian pub in Capitol Hill to talk
shop and socialize. The format is informal - all you need to bring is
a topic of conversation, such as an interesting problem, a project
you're working on, or even your resume.

ADVICE: Is the UX Intensive right for me?

I've been considering Adaptive Path's UX Intensive, but have heard
conflicting reports about it's value. Here's my situation:

* Sole UX Designer for an early dot-com startup
* First time holding the title of "UX Designer"
* 8+ years of web design experience (visual design & front-end
* Have worked in freelance, agency, and in-house environments
* Poses many of the soft skills (aka instinct, intuition, etc.) but
lack some hard skills (aka formal training, methodology, "lingo",

Is the UX Intensive right for me? Or should I look elsewhere?

Favicon and Apple Bookmark Icon

My company is an interactive agency. For a few years now as a standard
procedure we've created favicons (favicon.ico) for websites we build.
Recently, we have started creating an Apple Bookmark Icon
(customIcon.png) as well.

As an owner of an iPhone I dig the bookmark icon. But in day to day
browsing on a computer I actually use the favicon. In fact all my
browser bookmarks are simply the favicon. It allows me to have more
bookmarks without displaying any text.

Sketching & Prototyping Workshop IA Summit March 19th [PLUG]

Times running out and space is limited. So, you better sign up while
you can still get in.

Leah Buley of Adaptive Path and I are running a full day workshop at
the IA Summit on sketching and prototyping—you won't want to miss it.
It's the first time we've done this workshop together, but previous
versions of her sketching workshop and my prototyping workshops have
sold out. Now, we're bringing the best of both worlds together for the
first time.

What are you waiting for?
