It was a big night; easily the most attended event to date. There
wasn't even any food remaining at the conclusion of the event.

Andrew Daniel's presentation was compendious and informative. UXsears
has encountered and tackled significant challenges in the reformation
of an iconic American retailer. There was free schwag, but only if you
were tweeting about the event (#uxsears) http://tinyurl.com/yem4hp9.

Our thanks to all who assisted in putting together a great event (I'm
looking at you Mark and Tracy!) as well as to Andrew and his staff for
the extensive signage and Video and PA support (time for me to get a
video switchbox).

Gravity Tank has graciously offered to host our upcoming Winter
Social. The date is December 8, and more details are to follow.
