I encourage people to go as well. I will be there.


I'd like to promote an event next Thursday night Aug 5, "Web Design For Startups" [1], where I'll be a panelist along with Christopher Fahey of Behavior Design, Seth Giammanco of Minds On Design Lab,  and Dan Maccarone of Hard Candy Shell. The event is hosted by NYC-based entrepeneur meetup group UltraLightStartups [2].


*About ULS*

Graham Lawlor, founder of ULS, described the Aug 5 event to me this way:
