[Events] Enterprise Search Summit, NYC, May 11-12

If you are an experience design professional passionate about Search, you must attend the Enterprise Search Summit in NYC May 11-12. I have spoken on designing social search in the enterprise as well as designing search experiences a few times at this conference – and it really is the best conference around this problem space. Our good friend Peter Morville will be one of the keynote speakers talking about Search & Discovery Design Patterns. Again - this is pretty cool.

Please let's not engage in fear-mongering. Out of Office auto-replies are a normal part of email these days.
