I've just spent 2 really awesome days at the Future of Web Design conference.
The talks were awesome, in particular I got a lot out of the sessions on Emotional Design and User Testing; and the jQuery for Designers information will also be really useful. It was great having the design clinics and hearing Mike Kus' review of my work, I really respect him as a designer so it was a great opportunity. The whole format was much better than last year, and gave much more opportunity for networking. Odd fact: Ryan Carson is crazily tall, and being rather short I felt like a dwarf talking to him!
Most of all I'm excited about all of the things I want to try out and do now. Things like unfinished ideas for this blog that I didn't want to use Flash for are now possible with CSS3... oh so many ideas you'll just have to wait and see! I also met some really awesome people, it's very cool to talk to other web designers from different areas, share challenges and have fun!
