Introducing UX at a user conference

I start a new position at a new company as a User Interface Engineer on Monday, and our annual 3 day user conference is the following weekend. This is a small company and I am the first UX professional in the company.

This will be a new field for me so i'll be scrambling to learn their products asap, but I would like to bring ideas on how to interact with conference participants on their user experiences. These are my thoughts so far, please chime in, I would love to hear your ideas!

Outlook 2007 - Any problems with backwards compatibility?

I'm thinking of installing Office 2007.

I'm wondering if anyone has hit any backward compatibly issues either with
their own files or files from co-workers.

Did anyone upgrade and wish they had not?

Did you go to CHI? What did you think?

So, 2006 marked my fifth year in a row of not attending CHI.

From what I heard before the conference, CHI made a concerted effort
to better appeal to practicing and professional designers.

So... did it work? Was CHI noticeably different, and hopefully
better, than prior years?

Future of IxD student???

Hi, I'm Studying IxD.
For this summer I'm looking for Internship around the world in
different companies in different field from Google and Microsoft to
small interactive art and media companies. I realized that the role
of interaction designers may differ very widely regarding the focus
of the companies.. form user interface designer to researcher and
finally to interactive artist. I'm really confused about the my own
future..because in order to get to any of these jobs(for future) one
must learn lots of different tools, approaches, methods.( please
correct me if I'm wrong).

Fwd: Google does it again - with maps

(Rather surprised that the list address isn't in the reply-to, but oh well...)

---------- Forwarded message ----------
For kicks, I decided to "fly" west from my home in Brooklyn (start at
decent height above street level and hold down the left arrow), but by
the time I got bored I hadn't even made it out of New Jersey.

The only thing missing was an Indiana Jones-themed airplane icon in the middle.

Was the most literal sense of distance I'd gotten from a map system
ever, however. Scale legends are requisites, but for a pure visceral
effect nothing beats time.

[PLUG] Adaptive Path's UX Week; Aug 13-16; Early Reg ends Friday


Adaptive Path's UX Week conference takes place August 13-16, and it's
shaping up to be quite a doozy this year.


We've got an amazing program, with subjects spanning search engines,
interaction design, management challenges, participatory design,
social media, mobile design, usability for web 2.0, and more.

We're also extremely pleased to announce Deborah Adler as a keynoter.
As a graphic design student, Deborah developed the SafeRX pill bottle
design, which evolved into
