[Event] UX London 2010

Dear fellow IxDAers,

Just a quick note to remind people that tickets for UX London 2010 go
on sale at 10am tomorrow: http://2010.uxlondon.com/

It's a three-day conference in the heart of London, featuring one
day of inspirational talks and two days of hands-on workshops.
Leading attractions this year include JJG, Peter Morville, Josh
Porter, Scott McCloud, Bill Moggridge and many more.

Last year tickets sold out within the early bird period, and we ended
up having over 250 people on the waiting list.

Can USAFIS guarantee a U.S. Green Card?

No; however, it can guarantee that if a person is eligible for the
Green Card Lottery program that the individual's application will
qualify for the program. USAFIS is a professional pair of eyes to
make sure what you write and fill out meets the standards of the U.S.
State Department. All too often, people who register for this
wonderful opportunity do not make into the front door due to their
application being disqualified. In 2004, over 10 million people
applied for the U.S. Green Card Lottery program and over 2 million
were automatically disqualified.

Some problems with Wikipedia's iD

I thought this would be a good forum to bring up some interaction
design problems with Wikipedia.

These are some of the problems I found as an active contributor who
also happens to be an interaction designer.

1. Wikipedia shows only the last edit of an article in the watch list.
This leaves the writer no clue of the edits that took place from
his/her base lined version. (Base lined version will generally be the
user's last edit on the article.).
