User Interface Experience Conference - RIAPalooza 3

RIAPalooza 3 is currently opened for registration. If you are interested in interface design and would like to see some really cool stuff, come to RIAPalooza. The cost of the conference is $20.00. I missed the early bird registration of $10.00. Too busy with MWLUG 2010 and customers. The conference is a one day event in Chicago on July 23rd. This conference will open your eyes on what the world is doing in user interface design and how advanced some of the user interfaces are. And unfortunately, it also shows how behind some of the Lotus technology really is.
