“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.” - Steve Jobs


So this past week, I started the process of organizing UXCampNYC. The idea for this event was inspired by my experiences at BarCampNYC a few weeks ago. I LOVED IT!. My only regret is that I couldn’t go both days. You can read more about my experiences and inspirational moments.

So go to the Wiki for BarCamp learn what it is all about, and then join me in helping to make UXCampNYC happen.

Right now I’m aiming for May ’06 here in NYC. But I’m willing to make it anyplace along the NE Corridor where we can find the appropriate space. Amit Gupta outlines in his BarCamp NYC post mordem really well what we should be thinking about in terms of space and general organizing logistics.

I’m sure more will be here soon. I’m creating a category for UXCampNYC, so you can follow along.

Be Sociable, Share!

    How is UXCampNYC coming along, please update your progress in organizing this event. I would recommend to focus both on web 2.0 companies and UX.

    Good Luck

    Hey there, Ran across the PBWiki page. Any interest in resurrecting this?

    Wow! that’s like ancient history.
    As for resurrection, considering that I’m in Savannah now, I don’t think I’ll be a part of it. There were a few who were interested in it as a NE Regional UX nonconf but maybe it can be resurrected as the NE Regional IxDA conference. IxDA will be pushing to have regional IxDA conferences in 2010 (Summer or Fall) and so maybe you can start planning now for something like that. Again, being down here and involved in Interaction 2010 I don’t think I’ll be able to help out with any resurrection or evolution of UXCampNYC. :(
