I've been contemplating it for a while; now it's real!
I'm happy to announce that Lynn Boyden and her team (Chris Chandler, Lara Fedoroff, and Jessica DuVerneay) are going to bring their IA Slam to Santa Barbara and have a SB UX Slam night with us.
The IA/SB UX Slam is a condensation of the white-knuckle terrors and orgiastic joys of a full client engagement into a take-no-prisoners improvisational session.
Participants will work in teams to solve and present a heretofore unimagined business problem in a compressed time frame, and members of the winning team will be awarded in a special ceremony.
If this sounds scary, you're right. If it sounds fun, you're also right. If it sounds irrelevant to the practice of user experience, you couldn't be more wrong.
Because of the nature of team playing, we are limiting the attendance to 48 (excluding the organizer and slam team), and if you RSVP, please do come and play!
