I attended UX Burlington, a conference on web and user interface design last Friday in Burlington, Vermont. It was a wonderful experience. Many of the speakers were excellent, and the never ending waterfalls of exotic fair-trade coffee and espresso, and trays of delicate pastries and creatively-cut sugary confections had me feeling pampered and hyped. Each speaker was given 30 minutes for their presentation. Ethan Marcotte was the opening keynote while Karen McGrane left us with the closing. And at the end, mingling.
