Well, I did meet quite a few core77 forum lurkers at the conference :-) ... to all of you who came and took the time to say hello, thank you. I always appreciate meeting c77 posters and readers in person!

I gave a breakout session talk to about 60 people on the importance of retaining the skill of rapid visualization. As we elevate in our careers as designers from individual contributors, to directors, to leaders, it is important to remember and utilize our unique skill sets. The ability to rapidly visualize a solution has benefited me many times in board rooms, in front of retailers, and on the factory floor. Other speakers included Don Norman, Mauro Porcini, Phil Gilbert, Kara DeFrias, Jared Erondu, Bobby Ghoshal, Matthew Cole and many others. Great couple of days. If you can make it next year, I highly recommend it.
