Just returned from Voices That Matter Conference in San Francisco.
Wonderful sessions in web design, how designers can have a major effect on the world and inspirational talks on the trends in new media.
One of the best parts is being able to sit down and have breakfast with individual authors, as shown here in this picture where we had a discussion on designing for the mobile web.
Other sessions I attended:Css Layouts, Designing for credibility, User Experience for the real world, free Range Content, Ask the Author, and Stump the Chumpby Steve Krug (author of one of the best books in Web design: Don't Make Me Think ) who did a great web design presentation.
I'd do this again next year for sure.
