[Event] IxDA-SF and Microsoft co-present SketchFlow, Tuesday, August 25, 2009

As UX Professionals, we all know the power and importance of prototyping:
being able to play with an idea is a lot better than thinking about an idea.
Microsoft's newest version of Expression Studio, featuring SketchFlow,
allows you to move from hand drawn sketch to functioning prototype in
minutes. We'll show you how SketchFlow helps you:
Add interactivity
Design with data
Gather feedback from your users
Document your solution

Microsoft's offices are at 835 Market Street, Suite 700.

CLARIFICATION ON Call for presenters (Austin, TX): Collaboration, Deliverables, and Communicating with Stakeholders of All Kinds -

Hello everyone,

I realized after sending this that my automatic signature makes this
misleading. This call is NOT for the Convio Summit, but rather for an
AustinUX-sponsored 1-evening event. It's for user experience
professionals in the Austin, TX area. I apologize for any confusion.

Call for presenters (Austin, TX): Collaboration, Deliverables, and Communicating with Stakeholders of All Kinds

We're putting together an event in late September on the process of
collaboration. How do you collaborate with product management, fellow
designers or usability professionals, developers, and stakeholders?
What artifacts do you create to facilitate the process? What has been a
smashing success, what did you try but have fail miserably?

You'll be presenting with at least one and possibly two other people.
Your presentation should be around 15 minutes, and there will be
extensive time for Q&A and open discussion afterwards.

Social media and potentially offensive material....how/do you mediate?

Yesterday I was reading this post in NY Magazine.....about Disney hiring David Mamet to help write a new movie version of The Diary of Anne Frank. Now I don't know how anyone who is familiar with Mamet's work doesn't have a moment of what that could sound like flashing in their head. I certainly did before I even read the post. What stunned me though was the comments about it. Many people found it offensive and "not funny".

This brought up the question for me about social media these days and the good use of freedom of speech it seems to allow.
