The second UI11 Conference day featured five rounds of 90 minute talks. Here is my impression of the day. Lees verder Featured talks at UI11 Conference
So far, none of the talks I attended on AJAX and RIAs (Rich Internet Applications) ever got past “What is AJAX?” and showcasing one or two examples. Luckily, today’s full-day workshop on the first day of the UI11 Conference in Boston covered that within the hour and went ahead. Lees verder A dive into Rich Internet Applications

Today, my colleagues Annelies, Gert, Pascal and I attended the annual conference of SIGCHI.nl, who seized the opportunity to announce its new name: Chi Nederland.
The conference was held in the beautiful Tuschinski theater in Amsterdam. This year’s theme: “The Web and Beyond” (or in short: Web 2.0*). An impressive 650 (roughly) people were present, a record for this conference. Lees verder SIGCHI.nl 2006 conference
I know, it’s been very quiet on this blog lately. Last time I wrote I had just missed a fine cocktail hour with the local IA’s in Amsterdam (and special guest Jesse James Garrett). In the meantime, I’ve had some intensive months with lots of designing, usability testing and writing. Unfortunately that meant less time (actually none) for blogging and reading Peter Morvilles latest book. I did however manage to fit in the 34’th IA cocktail hour last December (thanks Peter Boersma and Info.nl for organizing). Lees verder Happy New Interaction Design!
The Information Architecture (IA) Summit is the premier event for information architects around the world. This year’s edition in Montreal was my first one and is without doubt the best conference I attended. And as of this month, Europe has its own edition: the EuroIA Summit.
The theme of this first European edition was “Building our community”. The share of Europeans on the American summits was not all that large, so gathering European IA’s was a logical first priority. Personally, I was delighted to see many Dutch attendees, some of whom I saw two days earlier on the SIGCHI.nl conference.
As regards content, these are my personal highlights of the first day of the first EuroIA. It took me a while, but better late than never. Lees verder The first European IA Summit (day 1)
