Old friend and Brooklyn wannabee @AndyBudd (http://www.andybudd.com/) is in from Brighton, UK. What better excuse to get together for drinks--even if it is last minute?
Who's Andy? For sure, a pillar in the UX community (here are some impressive words included in Andy's bio: UX London, Clearleft, Fontdeck, dConstruct, Silverbackapp). He's also a swell guy; come meet him and find out for yourself.
Or ignore him--confining him to a dark corner wondering what his life is about--while the rest of us drink and socialize. Your choice!
