Whereabouts, Thereabouts

At the moment I’m getting all my things together to head out to London for Carson Systems’ Future of Web Apps conference. I’m speaking there on Wednesday on the subject of “Managing User Interfaces,” and then giving a workshop on Thursday morning about designing with grids. It’s going to be great fun, but unfortunately, it’s sold out if you’re looking for tickets.

Also, while in London, I’ll be appearing on a panel assembled by Nico Macdonald called “Who Wants Tomorrow’s Papers?,” in which we discuss the state of online news design. That event will take place on Tuesday night, and it’s free, so come on out.

I’ll be turning this trip across the pond into a little getaway, too. On Thursday afternoon, I’ll fly to Paris for a few days to see my father and hang out with some friends. I’ll be back in New York a week from this Monday.

As always, my schedule on these trips is going to be pretty tight, so I apologize in advance if I can’t catch up with folks in London or Paris, though I will try. Posts here at Subtraction.com will be somewhat erratic too, if they happen at all… though that will also be due, in part, to the fact that just thirty minutes ago, with only an hour left to leave for the airport, the hard drive in my laptop died. Crashed. Kaput. I’ll be trying to resuscitate it in London, but the prognosis is grim. Ain’t that always the way?

  1. Perhaps that’s good and bad? I tend to pay more attention to my laptop than to others given a laptop and an internet connection.

    Anyway, I’m certain you’ll enjoy the FOWA. Have fun.

  2. Looking forward to seeing you at FWA. As for your laptop – there’s a nice Apple Store on Regent’s Street. Just take the tube to Oxford Circus. I’m sure there’ll be a “genius” there who can help 🙂

  3. Wish I could go to the “Who Wants Tomorrow’s Papers?” forum. I’d be really interested to hear you thoughts on what was discussed. I’m sure some other subtraction.com readers would be interested too 😉

  4. Hi Khoi. I loved your presentation at FOWA – it was the best and most inspirational one there. Is there any chance of posting your slides up – I have some colleagues I’d really love to show them to.

    That would be awesome

  5. It could have been worse – you could have had a broken laptop AND the conference could have had working WiFi 😉

    Anyway, the workshop was fantastic – I’ve been mentally breaking down every site I visited today into a grid (or lack of one).


Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
