Comment: Jared Spool (Jan 25, 2006)

It seems to be a rumor that I'm teaching this course: Enhancing the Strategic Influence of IAs: Understanding and Responding to Complex Business Problems.

In fact, I believe I'm teaching a course called The Secret Design Strategies of Successful Web Sites. I think the MIG5 folks are teaching the other course.

Or maybe I'm just not up to date on what's happening... :)
