A Blue Perspective: An abundance of Web Directions news

There's so much Web Directions news, I don't know what to do with it all. Well, I'll get the most exciting tidbit off my chest first:

I'm taking my Oscar-winning* workshops on the road around Australia†. I'll be guiding inquisitive programmers through the Frontiers of JavaScript at both Melbourne's Web Directions UX and also Canberra's Web Directions Gov: Revenge of the Sith. So if you're going to be in either city during May and you'd like to learn some of the more interesting things you can do with JavaScript, come along!

The second piece of Web Directions news is that my podcast from Web Directions North '08 has gone up. I posted the slides to The Future of Web Interfaces a while ago, but now that you can hear the words behind them they'll actually make sense. If you've got an application that can play MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 files, then download the audio here.

News part 3: early bird pricing for WD UX and WD Gov runs out on April 11, so if you want to grab a bargain you'll have to dive in quick.

And finally, Maxine did such an accurately biting expose of my character that I've signed her on to write the screenplay for my biopic.

    Are you generally from Australia or will you also have lessons in Europe? Germany or Austria possibly?

    Okay, possibly if you will come to Europe (Germany, Austria) sometimes, please donīt hesitate to contact me anyway.
    You have got my mail - possibly we can take a drink or two together.

    best regards Thomas

    Hello Cameron,
    I've listen the audio file - really nice one. A couple of audience questions are really soft spoken, but overall really easy listening and good sound quality... I want more :-)
