I think this one is going to be a blast!


Finally, a web event I get to attend. Bunch of us are renting an suv and heading down. Any recommendations for accommodation? Can't wait to finally meet you guys in person!


I was going to go... but so far have not been able to register (reg process is failing somewhere) and have gotten no response from the Carson folks, so nuts to them I say!


Hey guys, Jo here from Carson Systems. I am in the process of organising FOWD in NY! Great to hear all your comments and looking forward to meeting you all :)

Wishingline, apologies that you're having problems registering, ill send you a note and we will find out what the problem is and get you a pass!




I'm bummed to hear the Workshop is SOLD OUT. If any of you can't make the trip for some reason and are looking to sell your tickets, please let me know (prestons (at) gmail.com)



This will be an amazing event. Equally excited for the Jimmy Eat World the following Friday.



Hey, if you need driving directions to the conference, check this out. From your cell phone, dial 347-328-4667 (which spells "dir-ect-ions"), select event "Future of Web Design", and say your starting point (any address or intersection). That's it! And oh yeah...it's free.
