I enjoy, use and recommend Rosenfeld Media for learning the skills used in the usability and user interface/experience design profession. Here is a unique opportunity to listen to usability thought leaders without the need to pack, board the pets and sit in cramped planes.
UX Futures is a one day event is held on November 5 and features a day of keynotes from some of the hottest thinkers and doers in the biz. I had to re-read the fee five times. It’s incredibly affordable for the caliber of information they will be providing that day.
Once in a while, it’s good to put down your wireframes and stylesheets, step back, and consider what’s next.
What might design work—and the designed world—look like in 10, 20 or 50 years? What role will we have in shaping that world? And when we look back at the impact of UX, will it be with pride or regret?
We’ve asked six brilliant thought leaders—each from very different corners of the UX world—to consider the future. Steve Krug, Jesse James Garrett, Nathan Shedroff, Abby Covert,Andy Polaine, and Margot Bloomstein will take you back and forth in time. They’ll inspire you to design for the future, and to design the future itself.

If you are attending Pubcon SFIMA, I’m happy to treat you to a full hour on how to build communities on May 14, 4-5pm. You’ll benefit from my mistakes and funny experiences from 17 years of being a social web butterfly.
Community Building in a Social Marketing Age
The venue for SFIMA is the Miniaci Performing Arts Center on the Nova Southeastern University campus in Davie, Florida
Online communities have always been used for marketing. New communities make a go of it and succeed, like PIN, and others never get off the ground. What makes a community a social networking success year after year? What do members expect from your community and how do you keep the conversation going to that everyone benefits? With over 17 years of Internet community moderating experience, I’ll share my best lessons and offer loads of takeaways for use in any type of web community.
That same day, from 1:50-2:50pm, I’m moderating Social Media Optimization & Conversion on Facebook
Social Media Marketing is a powerful industry, and Facebook is at the forefront. Listen as we explore the latest & greatest techniques for SMM on Facebook.
Kevin Scholl, Social Media Manager for Red Roof Inn is the speaker.
