Day 2 was for me, not as enjoyable as Day 1, but none the less, was still quite informative and because I had to leave early, much more rushed.
Michal Migurski’s – @migurskikeynote was very cool and was good to see another infographic/visualisation geek like me, but this guy runs rings around me. I also liked the showcases he did on the Chicago crime rates and water rising. very cool.
Juliette Melton – @j presentation on Effective Remote Testing was honestly quite dry and only good for those that have not done any usability at all I felt, but for a general intro, nice work, for the likes of myself and a few others, i think it was a bit lacking engagement.
HTML Panel (4 key people in HTML 5, Ben Schwartz, John Alsopp and a few others I cant remember their names), this open discussion forum was good, even though Ben took over a bit at one stage, was very valuable and see the passion and heartaches they have gone through and their woes on trying to make HTML5 the new standard.
Shane Morris – @shanemo An old comedian I think I knew when working in Channel Nine, but looked like a top bloke, very entertaining, the subject matter he presented, also was like Juliette’s, lacked a bit of lustre’ for seasoned UX people, but for fresh newbies, it was definately an enjoyable talk. Also was good that he took on a few ideas of mine in regards to animation techniques in UX will be coming soon. I think I will make a presentation myself on this.
