I’ve spent the past week in Vancouver at Adaptive Path’s User eXperience intensive in Vancouver. I will unfortunately miss the November 2007 VanUE meeting – Dynamics of Wikipedia which will definitely bring a passionate discussion around the user experience of Wikipedia and MediaWiki. But I will be around for a few events in Alberta.
Pat Barford from EPCOR and Gene Smith have kindly made arrangements for a pre-CanUX 2007 gathering in Edmonton. I’m hoping that there are a group of user experience professional, information architects, human factors practitioners, designers, students, developers and entrepreneurs in Edmonton will come and join us for a roaming UXIrregulars meet up.
After CanUX I’ll be in Calgary for DemoCampCalgary5. Patrick Lor and Kempton (whose last name I don’t seem to know) have been fantastic in helping set this up. I will be in Calgary from November 25-29. I plan on meeting a few folks from UofC but I will extend this offer to anyone in Calgary. Drop me a note at david at davidcrow dot ca or david dot crow at microsoft dot com, or just use my handy-dandy contact form and we can get together to talk about community, user experience, design, Microsoft, or anything else.
It looks like a great demo schedule. I’m hoping that even folks who have previously presented will consider representing.
