Six Word Resume Meme (from WWDS)

So over at "What Would Dad Say", GL Hoffman (author of Dig Your Job: Keep it or Find a New One) has asked readers to post their six-word resumes. By 1 January 2009.

With no time to waste, here's mine:

Connecting social media and user assistance. (I think it could have more "punch"...I'll have to work on that.)

(My personal six-word meme is Playing the hand I was dealt.)

What are your six-word memes?

Get ready for First Night Boston!

We try to get to Boston's First Night every year, at least for a couple of hours. So every year, I go to their website to see what's new...

And what's new is that First Night has gone social :-) They have a blog (which has actually been around since December 2006) and they're using Twitter, too.

(I don't remember seeing the blog in previous years, but the website has undergone a complete update. It's much nicer than what I remember and much better organized. My only complaint is that you have to use Back from the blog to return to the main site. And be sure to click First Night 2009 in the upper left to get to this year's information.)

If you're going to be in the Boston area for New Year's, check out their program guide, build an itinerary (you have to type your email address to continue), and the rest of their site.

And if you're going to First Night, let me know! Maybe we can meet up somewhere :-)

Get User Interface Checklist before the price goes up!

In March 2008, my good friend Rhonda Bracey of CyberText presented Techniques for Reviewing a User Interface at the WritersUA Conference. (It was an awesome presentation and she was then asked to give it at AODC and ASTC (NSW).)

After she got back to the office, she set up a page on her website that includes the presentation (through SlideShare and in PDF), a voice recording of the presentation (MP3), handouts (PDF), and a five-page User Interface Checklist (PDF). She has also been offering the checklist in an editable Word version for $4.95USD.

In January, the price of the checklist goes up to $20USD. Get it now and take advantage of the price break!
