UXnet @ The Henry Ford’s “Out of this World”

Saturday, December 6, 2008

The Henry Ford, Dearborn, MI

Host: The User eXperience network (UXnet)

Date: Saturday, December 6, 2008

Time: 9:30am – 5:00pm

Location: The Henry Ford

Street: 20900 Oakwood Blvd

City/Town: Dearborn, MI

Help: buy cheap term papers to find answers about "The Henry Ford" when preparing the topic, or if you are not confident in your own competence for it

Visit to The Henry Ford with your User Experience colleagues. See the special exhibit “Out of this World” and other parts of the museum (and Greenfield Village if the weather is good). There MIGHT be a special time/place to meet your UX colleagues, but there might not. If we all go on the same day, we will run into each other as we visit the museum, and that may be enough.

It’s our demo night, where people in the audience are invited to “show and tell” their latest creation, design, application, or a cool tool they’ve discovered that’s made their life easier. Each person has five minutes to present and answer questions. Demo night is a great opportunity to share your work, see what others have been working on, and get feedback on works in progress.
