Johanna Rothman has authored 6 books, served as program chair for the Agile Alliance and is the Technical editor for the Agile Journal. That is the easy part. The focus of her company is to attack difficult transitions: geographically distributed, large programs, too many projects, some part of the company is still in waterfall, etc.She specializes in unique and challenging situations.

She will speak to us on Saturday, Oct 6. Read about her initiatives at

Why a 'Spatial UI'?

Face to face is great when you can afford travel. Webinars are okay too but we want to try out what Bill calls 'spatial' environments that better facilitate communication - through backchat and spatial context.

    I was pleased by how often I heard positive things about the concept of immersive distributed events from some key folks in our industry. Big hats off the the team - Virtual Ability for transcription services (10 hours, in spite of being sick - and included a global team), The videography crew often very late at night for them in Europe, RUC staff and UW Avalumni, and of course the 9 speaker who proved once again while they lead their specialties. Including the speakers that was a team of 20 people - fueled by curiosity and commitment to our community more than remuneration. Pretty darn amazing.

    The precise date of the conference has not yet been set. We are checking for conflicting events and plan to hold the event in October 2012. We'll open registration when we have those details hammered out.
