What kind of events would you like to see this group have?

I hope to get work and to learn. I also need to be on more projects that can pay my bills so I can get better at this and have a log of achievements behind me. Right now I don't have enough achievements only because I'm working a job that doesn't give me a chance to use my best skills. I would also like to share my experience so we can all grow together.

Are you currently looking for a new full-time job, or contract work? If yes, what type of work?

Yes. I like the idea of being a more project by project based, but I'm open to working full time if it is a good match. I would like to be in the industry to really see what is going on, to explore and learn. I have a lot of experience practically memorizing design podcasts, reading Jakob Nielson, Don Norman, Steve Krug, Janice Redish, Douglass Crockford, 37 Signals and many others for UX and programming, but I'm dying to really work with people and learn. IRC has been very helpful in gaining confidence with Javascript, but I need to work on projects that make me grow. Right now I am probably best at design, but my programming is responsible, but perhaps not as quickly written as needs to be.

May I have your company name, your title and email address? I won't spam you with emails.

Are you a subject matter expert willing to be a guest speaker or participate in a panel discussion? If yes, please tell me what your expertise is in.

I would love to do this, but I need more confidence before I can contribute. I love teaching and have been teaching octogenarians how to use computers since I was fourteen years old and other groups and subjects. I would love to do lead a group discussion where we do exercises from The Little Schemer. I'll think of more later.
