We have sessions!

Posted: 2:33 AM, Friday 24 August, 2007

We’ve sorted through many very fine proposals and had to make some heartbreaking choices as to who didn’t make the cut.

Right now, so far, we have 14 sessions selected. We plan at least another two sessions as well, plus inter-session activities … but we ran out of beer so the program committee was adjourned for the night.

We have presentation sessions covering wikis, tagging, business realities, and user research. Some will be diving deep into their subjects, some will be rollicking frolics, some may even be both at the same time. Did I mention there was beer?

Each of the selected sessions are listed on the Sessions page, with each linked to a session abstract and the presenter’s bio and photo. Each of those pages have comments enabled, so please go ahead and ask your speakers some difficult questions. Especially if they have only a short and mysterious abstract. Who knows, maybe they’ll even quietly update their presentation to include coverage of your question too.

We’ve also got a number of inter-session activities planned, things involving user personas, graded categories, a delphi method-esque card sort, affinity diagramming, a pod-casting Q&A, a trading card game, and brainstorming some cloudy problem. Oooh, mysterious!

We’re still accepting ideas and proposals for inter-session activities, so do let us know.
