Tonight Jon and I are catching a flight to Sydney for Web Directions South. I am doing the keynote for the conference, speaking about “The perils of popularity“. This talk is a riff on social design, popularity driven navigation of the web and the tussle between hit-culture and democratic participation on the web. Jon will be talking about Flash and AJAX and how to use them in a complementary fashion.
I am also talking at the OZ IA Summit this weekend about the lessons learned from the design of SlideShare.
If you are a reader of this blog in Sydney and want to say hi, drop me a line. Or if you are going to be at either of the two conferences, then come by and say Hi.
