A plug for New Orleans
~ 13 March 2008 ~
Due to SXSW and travel, I’ll be posting Part III of the Extensible CSS Series next week rather than this week.
This is a good time to pause and put in a plug for An Event Apart New Orleans, April 24–25. Join Jeffrey Zeldman, Eric Meyer, Jason Santa Maria, Aaron Gustafson, Jeff Veen, Dave Shea, Andy Clarke, Brian Oberkirch, Aarron Walter, Stephanie Sullivan, Robert Hoekman Jr., and myself for two full days of banter and enlightenment. (I’ll be presenting a reprise of Good vs. Great Design. Use code AEAMOLL and you’ll save $50 off the purchase price.)
For me, this particular conference is important for two reasons: One, after three years of speaking at nearly two dozen conferences nationally and internationally, I’ve scaled back my speaking in 2008 considerably. AEA New Orleans is one of just two major events I’ve chosen to speak at this year.
Two, the location couldn’t be better for a gathering of individuals who share a special concern for the needs and wants of others. By “others” we typically mean “users,” but for this event I hope we broaden that label to include members of the New Orleans community, as well.
Got any ideas for how I, and possibly the other speakers, and possibly even the attendees, might give back to the community during our stay?
