Eric Scheid forwarded me an email on the forthcoming OZ-IA conference in Sydney later this year. :) It’s great to hear this conference is happening back home!
I remember (while living & working in Sydney a few years ago) there seemed to be a funny feeling inside of you that felt we (us Aussies) were a little behind everything happening in North America & Europe. Although this was more a perception thing than anything else, in reality, our thinking and problem solving skills dealt with a different market, region and cultures.
There are some brilliant and incredibly smart people back home! It’s fantastic to see an IA conference like this in Sydney. and OZ. It should be awesome!
Here’s a quote,
On the last weekend of September 2006 there will be a conference/retreat on information architecture in Sydney, Australia. We’ll have a packed schedule featuring international and local speakers, you’ll get to engage with
panels, and participate in group sessions. And of course, there’s the opportunity to catch up with your peers, network your way to new contacts, and have a good time.
So, pencil it in to your calendar, and spread the word! (if you blog it, please tag it with “ozia2006” so we can track the meme :-)
