We've finalized plans to **have World Usability Day at MCNC**. (Here's a great picture of the MCNC campus.)
Thanks to Steve Rutland and the gang over there for accommodating us on such short notice. :-) And thanks to our sponsors, like Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, for the donations that made renting the space possible. We still need more funds to make this event as successful as possible. Please forward the sponsorship levels and benefits on to your boss if you think he or she would be willing to donate.
While the agenda has not been finalized (we're so close, now), we do know that the event will run from 6:00 - 9:00. So, if you haven't done so already, mark November 3 from 6:00 - 9:00 on your calendar.
All that said, it feels great to see everyone's hard work paying off. We've found space, the agenda is nearly finalized, most of our panelists have confirmed, the interactionary teams are almost finalized, and the usability ticket is nearly complete.
Okay, okay, we do still have a lot of items "almost" and "nearly" finished, which means that we're going to have a lot of announcements come next week. Somebody help us if we don't get this finalized by then! ;)
