Ah, the beauty of conference-wide WIFI... Bob Baxley just gave a good talk
too. So far DUX is somewhat reminiscent of the first IA Summit (Boston,
April 2001): lots of short, rapid-fire talks from a variety of speakers
from completely different backgrounds. Maybe this is something that should
be considered for the next IA Summit?
Also, there's a really mixed audience, which is probably the most important
aspect of this particular event. It really makes for interesting corridor
So more questions for the next Summit's program committee: should a goal be
to ensure that a diverse audience attends? How might this be done? Should
the next Summit be advertised in other communities? Should other
organizations be invited co-sponsor?
Anyway, just some random thoughts... And kudos to everyone involved in
