Ideas4 – Done and Dusted


Well a little over a week ago AWIA pulled off another event miracle, Ideas4. It organised an evening seminar for the local web industry in little under 2 weeks. As usual it all came together nicely on the night with over 100 people attending and even a special blow-in guest from the US, who just happened to be in town.

Jordan Brock kindly videoed the two talks presented by Lisa and Rachel, encoded and uploaded them to Vimeo.

Rachel Cook, despite being 8 month pregnant, amused us all with tales of Silicon Valley and web 2.0 startups.

Where as Lisa Herrod on her birthday trekked all the way from the East Coast to present on holistic usability and accessibility with Usability More Than Skin Deep, Proving that checklist help but real people should be part of the equation.

Thanks go to both Rachel and Lisa. You really made for an awesome evening.

  1. It really was a great way to spend my birthday, I had a ball! The problem now is, how am I going to maintain such a high next year if I don’t get an audience of a hundred on my birthday?!

    You guys did a great job in just 2 weeks and an impressive turnout too.

    Can’t wait to see what else you have in store for 2008 🙂

  2. Just wanted to say that the video and sound quality improves for Lisa’s presentation for one simple reason: I moved the camera closer! For the next presentation we’ll work on some better lighting and also some lapel mics.

  3. I *so* wish I was there. It looks like it was a fantastic night!

  4. @Lachlan – it was a great night. People kicked on till midnight when Lisa started to fade. Not bad given it was 2am for her.

    We are hoping to do more Ideas events this year.
