Nov 28, 2007: User Experience Network picks up steam

We've relaunched the UXnet web site, with some major improvements. We've made it far easier for our dozens of UXnet "local ambassadors" to profile the UX activities and landscape in their local areas. Subsequently, the events calendar has grown substantially. The site's news area has been going strong for a while now through the efforts of Mark Vanderbeeken and Whitney Quesenbery. Thanks to the new design, the site's content and overall activity have really taken a great leap forward. And we're not done yet; more good changes are on the way.

So, if you've had a "wait-and-see" attitude about UXnet (and I wouldn't blame you if you did) this is a good time to take another look. And if you're interested in participating as an "ambassador" for your area, we want you.

This is a great time to acknowledge the hard work of many volunteers, especially Keith Instone, who squeezed much of the relaunch into his tight schedule. Keith is an incredible team player and hard worker who, in his positive and low-key way, successfully collaborates with a diverse collection of backgrounds and egos. Keith really is the model of what a user experience professional should be. So it's not surprising that UXnet has named its volunteer award after him. Thank you, Keith!

Blush. You are welcome.

I would add that the calendar will slowly fill up more and more with local events, but we are also putting in as many "conferences" that we can find.

And we could always use some help with that. You can volunteer for UXnet as a local ambassador, but you can also volunteer to help us with other things, too.
