Jan 03, 2007: UXnet locales have a home on the web

Yes, UXnet remains a work in progress, and I remain committed to its development (in fact, I've just rejoined its executive board). Like any other volunteer-driven effort, it's slow going but wonderful when it finally starts to come together.

We're having one of those wonderful moments right now. UXnet launched new functionality that enables its "Local Ambassadors" to provide information about their respective locales, as well as local UX-related groups and events.

Local Ambassadors are there to serve as hubs, networkers, brokers, and ultimately activists to support UX growth on the ground around the world. So far we have almost 100 ambassadors representing 73 locales in 29 countries around the world. And now they finally have a place on the web. This is very, very cool; check it out. It's been fun to watch as pages launch for each individual locale.

Does this look like something you'd like to participate in? Go to the page and see if your locale is represented. If it's not—or if you'd like to team up with whomever is already working as your local Local Ambassador—contact our Local Ambassadors Recruiter, John Sheridan: ambassadors (at) uxnet.org

Endless kudos to Jess Frederick, Keith Instone, John Sheridan, John Ferarra, Sean Van Tyne, Dirk Knemeyer, and probably some other people that I'm forgetting for their hard work on launching this infrastructure.

Okay, this is totally unrelated to UX, but...

I need that functionality! (for the URL above) I've been planning to do something like that for a long time, but you know how it goes.

What do I have to do to bribe you and/or your programmer to either advise me on doing something similar, or perhaps allowing me to pay you/them to do it for me...?
