World Usability Day - Ohio (and Michigan)

We have not finalized our plans for the November 14th World Usability Day activity in northwest Ohio (it will be small), but if you are in the area, there are lots of "regional" events you can go to if you are willing to drive 2 hours.

To the north is a full day conference at Michigan State University (serving the whole state of Michigan).

To the east are two events in northeast Ohio: a daytime event at Kent State University and an evening session at the Cleveland Museum of Art.

To the southeast, there is 1 event in Columbus, at Nationwide Insurance. (October 30 update: this event is for Nationwide employees only. I will let you know if there is anything open to the public in Columbus.)

To the south, LexisNexis in Dayton is hosting a conference.

Some parts of Indiana are within a 2-hour drive, but the Indiana World Usability Day 2006 Conference is farther, in Indianapolis.

Also, you can partiicpate in World Usability Day without leaving your home or office, via Webcasts & Podcasts. There are some webcast-only events and several local events are being broadcast so that you can attend online. Note that some of these webcasts might take place on November 13th for us here in the Eastern US time zone.

Later, I will send out news about our local gathering here on my blog and also at NWOACM (the local group sponsoring it).


This is not associated with World Usability Day, but it is happening on November 14th in Cleveland: A panel discussion on sustainabilty and design.

They keep coming in, I will have to make a separate page that is better than this blog entry with comments. But for now.....

World Usability Day at Ohio State, 4:00pm - 9:00pm, Ohio State University, Science and Engineering Library 090, Columbus, Ohio.

I decided this blog entry was not enough to explain what is going on in Ohio, so I created the Ohio World Usability Day site. Consider this blog entry now out-of-date.
