[Reminder] UX Australia call for reviewers

The Call for Proposals for UX Australia (
http://www.uxaustralia.com.au/conference-2009) is well under way and has
generated a lot of interest. But in the excitement of announcing the Call
for Proposals you may have missed that we're also looking for volunteers
from the community to help select the conference content!

As a community-based conference UX Australia is encouraging UX practitioners
to get involved in the conference as much as possible.

[PLUG] Good Design Faster - April 2-3

Hi everyone,

Just a quick plug for an event taking place in San Francisco in

Good Design Faster is Adaptive Path's newest workshop -- a unique
experience where attendees spend two days with Adaptive Path
practitioners sketching interactive experiences and turning them into
functioning prototypes.

The basic premise of Good Design Faster is that wireframes are good
for some things, but quick, iterative, interaction-oriented design
ain't it.

videos from Ix09?

Are these available yet? I seem to recall a plan to release three at a

video segments?

I ask because I am doing an in-house presentation for all of the UX
people at DigitasHealth (across multiple offices) and need to collect
