Steve in the UK, coming right up

Less than a year after my last trip to London, I’m headed back to the UK – to Sheffield – to give the opening keynote at DRS2008 (Design Research Society conference), offering my perspectives on disciplinarity and rigour. If you’re attending the conference, drop me a note so I’ll know to look for you.

I’m also bookending the time in Sheffield with a few days in London before and after. It’d be great to meet up with firms and folks interested in culture, design, and innovation (etc.). I could probably throw together a little presentation or discussion starter for your team. Get in touch if you’d like me to stop by.

Floridian adventures await

Next week I’ll be in Orlando, giving an early-morning keynote at the Nortel Technical Conference. After that, I’ll be in Miami for a few days. I’ve got some time in both cities and would love to meet up with locals o chat about what we do and look for ways we might work together.

Drop an email (or leave a comment)!

London Calling

Looks like I’ll be in London for the first half of September; my first trip there in 17 years. I’ll be mostly focused on the work I’m doing but do hope to meet up with readers of this blog/folks I know. Drop me a line and let’s see if we can set it up.

Meetup – You can check out any time you like

Click picture to see it larger.

I received an announcement from Meetup, a service I have never really used. It included the following:

To unsubscribe from ALL your Meetup Groups and the
service as a whole, click here:

I decided to do that – close the account. First thing that link takes me to is a login page. Entering email and password. A bit weird, given that I just told them by clicking that I want OUT, but anyway. The next page, however, wants all sorts of other information, thanks to an updated TOS (“terms of service”)
My name.
A new user ID
My country and zip
My email preferences
My agreement to the new TOS

Once I completed all THAT, then I could close down my whole account. Weird.
