Speaking at Open Gov West in Portland

I probably should've blogged about this a long time ago, but better late than never, as they say. Sarah Schacht, the plucky lady that runs Knowledge as Power, also runs the series of Open Gov West conferences. She's invited me to be part of a panel on government, technology, and usability in light of the work I did with her studying the Seattle.gov redesign. Should be fun! I promise to blog about it.

Conference URLs:

Tunesday, Vol XVII: The Mayfield Four, Ashes Divide, Funeral for a Friend, more...

Future = Bright

It's been 3 years since I graduated from the UW and I think I am finally - finally - driving my life where I want it. Not only am I going to grad school at the University of Michigan this fall to earn the dual-masters of my dreams, but I have serendipitously been offered an internship-like UX position at ZAAZ just as my quality assurance job at winds down. With a little luck, I might even get to use that as internship credit for grad school.

The future looks bright, indeed.
