best cites to get /host UI and UX talent

I have an opportunity to build a UI/UX team for my company and (like everyone else) am concerned about finding quality talent. There is a potential to develop this group at a number of different locations across the US. My experience has shown that certain cities will "resonate" better to the design community. I'd very much like to hear this groups opinions as to the options listed below.

Data Grid Heuristics Help - Actions in Grid or on Top?

In trying to establish consistency of interaction across multiple tabs on a large web application, I'm faced with creating heuristics about where to place actions for particular records. Certain grids have a large number of records where actions on multiple records at one time is probable; using a checkbox on the left with a multiple action button on the top makes sense.

DC Area Event: IA Salon TONIGHT!

[Please forgive the cross-posting.]

For several years, the DC-area information architecture group DCIA ran
a reading group. We see an enormous opportunity to expand this regular
event. The IA Salon is the next stage of evolution. Think of the salon
as the reading group without all that pesky reading.

Meet up with friends and colleagues at 7pm at the Mayorga in Bethesda
for an informal discussion.

"Question 1-
If a user doesn't notice a missing feature, is it really missing?"

my suggestion for replacing the WIMP acronym

Hello Everyone. While at MSFT I was working on NUI principles to
utilize for all the products moving forward. This got me into a lot
of really high level thought processes. Based on all of the writing
for my book I have been doing, and since I left Microsoft a month or
so ago, I submit a recommendation for a new acronym. This could be
used to describe Modern User Interface Design.

OCGM, pronounced like Occam['s Razor]

Objects, Containers, Gestures, Manipulations

No need to rely on windows, menus, etc. I posted about it on my blog
as well.
