See me speak

See me speak at SxSW Interactive

South by Southwest is coming up fast, and I’m proud to say I’m speaking again. This year I’ll be co-presenting with m’learned colleague James Box on the cheesily alliterative subject of Wireframing in a Web 2.0 World. We’ll be covering the thorny issue of wireframing ajax interactions, and a plethora of other features pertinent to modern web designs. There’ll be no code but plenty of examples, so it shouldn’t be too arduous for 10am on a Sunday morning (in Room B).

On Thursday 28th February, we will be doing a dry run of the Wireframing presentation as a Skillswap at Clearleft’s offices in Brighton. Sign up on Upcoming (although I think it may already have ‘sold’ out).


Later in the year, in October, I’ll be presenting as part of Singularity. Organised by friend and fellow Brightonian, Aral Balkan, Singularity is a hugely exciting concept – it’s the first large-scale online web conference in the world. Singularity is three days of talks, run over multiple tracks, involving over 100 of “the world’s top web visionaries, developers, designers, thought leaders, and celebrities”.

The core tenet behind Singularity is to capture – define even – the Web as it is seen in 2008, and all the conference sessions will be released under Creative Commons license a few months afterwards. I’m not sure precisely what my topic will be just yet, but the brief is to talk about ‘whatever is exciting you at the moment’ which sounds pretty cool to me.
