edUi2009 – Remaining Strong

Our web colleagues at University of Virginia are organizing a conference for higher education web professionals. edUi 2009 will focus on user interface design and the challenges of of producing websites for large institutions.

The conference program is shaping up with with celebrity speakers and a series of workshops. Joel Pattison and I both submitted proposals to serve as presenters. Joel may get the chance to offer a session on “Tribe Voices” and I’d like the chance to talk about using social networking tools for the W&M Mascot Search.
