What Conferences and Events Mean to Me

Inspired by Laura Kalbag’s post explaining why she goes to conferences, what she gets out of them, and how best to share what she’s learnt, and Andy Clarke’s New Adventures And Me postI feel not only inspired, but compelled to share my thoughts. So here goes. Knowledge I do try and follow the main conferences […]

Jakob Nielsen Is Wrong

World-renowned usability expert Jakob Nielsen, in a recent post, suggested that a separate website with lesser features and reduced content is the right way to approach mobile websites.
