Canberra IA cocktail hour – report

Last week, I arranged the first Canberra Information Architect’s cocktail hour.

We had good attendance – 9 people (plus a few apologies). Not bad for pulling names out of my head to invite.

One thing that was really interesting was the range of backgrounds we had. They included:
- librarians
- data managers
- software engineers (with some cognitive science in the mix)
- user-centred designers
- tech writing

We do a range of jobs, and have a range of skills, so we should be able to learn a lot from each other.

We talked housekeeping a bit (which reminds me, I have to set us up a yahoo group), decided on meeting times, and talked a bit about topics for future meetings.

We decided to meet monthly, on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. I have since had to reschedule slightly to the 3rd Wednesday. I hope this still suits.

So, thanks to those who came. I hope to see you next time. I’ll arrange the yahoo group, and will also keep meeting details here and on the IAwiki.

    I’m jealous; I wish I could join you all! I bet my office isn’t willing to fly me down there, though… :-)
