It's Like Vaudeville! Only Without The Cream Pies! Posted on 03/22/2002.

A couple of Adaptive Path partners and I are going on the road this year, spreading the gospel of Good User Experience to the masses. We'll be hitting up 5 cities: Chicago, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Dallas, and San Francisco. And, perhaps coolest, in each city we'll have a local brilliant person provide their perspective on user experience. And the venues--the coolest! We've tried hard to avoid hotel conference rooms with carpeted walls. And, needless to say, sign up early and SAVE SAVE SAVE! (Is my "sell" crass enough here?) So what are you waiting for?

What are we waiting for? The world tour.

I was going to go on tour, but my clients were worried about their projects, so I cancelled.

Do your clients ever get worried when your away?
