Best conference?

It's budget time again!! I get to pick one conference. In your expert
opinion, which conference will be the best to attend next year? I am an
interaction designer/ user interface designer. I have attended the Nielsen
Usability conference for the past 2 years, but I'm wondering if CHI 2007
would be a better fit.

Omnigraffle question- Masters

How do folks handle Masters (elements that repeat) in Omnigraffle? I'm using
v5.02. Yes there are shared layers, but its not very useful because the xy
coordinates of shared layer are defined in the layer property as well. As a
result of that I can't have Master elements that appear in different
positions on the screen. I now create a new shared layer for each position
of the master- this works ok for smaller projects, but is very frustrating
for larger ones.
Wondering if anyone has come up with a better workaround?

Introduction to Interaction Design


I am putting together an Introduction to Interaction Design lecture. I guess about 30 minutes long.

I wanted to hopefully get feedback from the members here for things I should be including. The target audience is undergrad students who do not know anything about this discipline.
