Fun speaker opportunity
Are you attending STC's annual conference in Baltimore's fabulous Inner Harbor in May? Want some more encouragement and/or a fun speaking opportunity? If speakers like Ben Shneiderman, Steve Krug, Ginny Redish, Whitney Quesenbery, Mike Lee, Dirk Knemeyer and Thom Haller don't do it for you, perhaps the idea (and cost savings) of being a speaker yourself may do it! The UID (usability and information design) stem can use just a couple more ID speakers to fill some progression slots that have become available.
In a typical progression, 8-12 speakers with a common theme meet in a large room and speak to 8-10 people at a time, 3x in a 90-minute session. Progressions are casual (no overhead projectors), interactive (meant to include lots of Q&A or discussion), and get you the speaker's discount!
Here are the available progressions. If you're interested, please follow up with Caroline Jarrett (or me, and I'll forward):
UID 5U "Willing and able"
UID 7B "Section 508 for Dummies"
UID 3B "Getting started in usability and information design"
UID 10A "Usability and information design
Feel free to email me if you have any questions or have an idea you want to run by someone.
Otherwise, hope to see you in Baltimore hon!
