There is return in user experience design

Today I set down watching the livecast of the second day keynote just to see what it was going on, because I pretty much knew everything about IE8 and I didn’t know who Deborah Adler was. OK, IE8 RTM was released… and the “exceptional” standard compliancy was shown on stage, together with the webslices and accellerators. But, not big news. Now I’ve to update my IE6 warning message. But I was really pleased not to have closed the stream when Deborah Adler coming on stage. Bill Buxton introduced her saying: “She doesn’t come...

A lap around MIX09 announcements

Many new things came out before the actual keynote, like ASP.NET MVC RTM, Silverlight 3.0 Beta 1 (with Blend for SL3 and its VS2008 tools), RIA DataServices. Not sure if it was something they planned or an error by someone that forgot that 9AM in Las Vegas happens 8 hour after 9AM in Europe, but that’s what we’ve got. The Opening keynote by Buxton I would have never expected such an awesome keynote by Buxton: it was about user experience designer, about UX in MS, about the importance of sketching. Buxton is a researcher, but it was one...

This new release should doesn’t have anything new since RC2, except having updated jQuery to the latest version (1.3.2), and solved a bug...

Suffering from Pre Mix Envy… again

MIX09 is starting in two days, and again, even this year, I’m not going to Vegas: I had to choose between ALT.NET Conf + MVP Summit and MIX09, and I chose for the former. Can’t fly from Italy to US twice in 3 weeks (and I’m still recovering from last flight’s jetlag). But luckily, as they did with last PDC, the keynotes will be streamed live, and all the session recordings will be available almost immediately. I’ll miss the community interactions and I’ll not meet all the awesome guys that will go to Vegas, but at least I won’t...
