Lots of stuff going on lately, but two more official and important things right now is ;
For a while I’ve been part of a mailing-list called PM clinic which is a great gathering of a lot of smart people who are all passionate about project management, big and small. So, I was especially happy to hear that Scott Berkun, the guy that runs PM Clinic and who’s an alround great guy, is giving master-classes in Australia this spring. To quote ;
Why do so many design intensive projects go so wrong? This one day masterclass presented by Scott Berkun will teach you the best practices and leadership tactics for starting, managing and shipping web and software projects that rely on design skills.
Take note of the following dates ; Sydney: 1 September 2006, Canberra: 6 September 2006 and Melbourne: 8 September 2006 I’m already signed up for the Canberra session, so I just might see you there. (Look for the guy with stripey arms…)
IA Retreat 2006
The Information Architecture Retreat 2006 happens in Sydney on the 30th and 31st of September. I’ll be presenting “Sexier, smarter and faster IA through Topic Maps” in which I take my two favourite things and make them one! Quite a number of people have already signed up for this one, so I’m quite excited about it; it’s going to be a blast. There’s tons of other great stuff too which I’m seriously looking forward to. See you there. (P.S. I’m going to be at Web Directions 2006 as well which is a web design conference in Sydney that runs four days in front of the IA retreat. Coincidence? I think not.)
