Adaptive Path User Experience Week 2006

We always try to make Adaptive Path's annual User Experience Week the kind of conference we'd like to attend ourselves, but for this year's event (August 14-17 in Washington, D.C.) I think we've really exceeded that goal.

Day 1 kicks off with author Steven Johnson, who has demonstrated an uncanny sense of the ideas digital product designers are really interested in: There's Interface Culture, the first book to take interface designers seriously as cultural contributors; Emergence, which presaged the current trend toward dynamic user-driven experiences; Mind Wide Open, in which he made himself the guinea pig for a variety of "mind hacks"; Everything Bad Is Good For You, which argues that electronic media are making us smarter, not dumber; and his upcoming book The Ghost Map, which is all about the power of information design to save lives and shape history.

On Day 2 we've got renowned graphic designer Michael Bierut, who sometimes seems to get as much attention for his controversial views on design as he gets for his design work. Whether you know him from his role as partner in the influential graphic design firm Pentagram or you know him from his writings on the design blog Design Observer, you know he'll have some interesting insights to offer.

On Day 3, Adaptive Path co-founder Jeffrey Veen returns to share insights on Web application design drawing on his years of experience with HotWired, Lycos, Adaptive Path, and now Google.

Then on Day 4, museum exhibit designer Barbara Brennan of the National Air and Space Museum will talk about the considerations that go into creating entertaining and enlightening experiences for museum-goers.

And those are just the keynotes! We'll also be joined by a host of old and new faces (including Jared Spool, Kevin Cheng, Rashmi Sinha and Bradley Horowitz) and get previews of new books from authors Dan Brown and Dan Saffer.

Early bird discount registration ends on Friday! Use discount code FJJG for an extra 15% off. See you in D.C.!

This is unrelated, but I have two questions:

1) Why do I get a javascript error every time I tab to the next input field on this comment posting form?

2) Is Ajax an acronym or not?
