| View | Upload your own Slides from my presentation on remote usability tools (UserVue and Ethnio) at the last TriUPA event of 2007. Note: Since I gave this presentation, Ethnio has re-launched focusing on live recruiting.

Building User-Centered Web Apps in a Crunch

October 30th, 2007 · No Comments

June 25th, 2007 · No Comments

I once heard someone call South by Southwest “spring break for geeks.” Well, there’s nothing like empirical evidence, so I tagged along with the Lulu.com community team to investigate South by Southwest (SXSW) for myself.

I think that went pretty well…

June 5th, 2007 · No Comments

Well, DCampSouth has come and gone, and I (personally) think it went off very well. Of course, I’m hardly an impartial observer… A huge thanks to Greg Corrin and Christin Phelps, who helped me organize the event. There wouldn’t have been a DCampSouth without them.
