UX / Design / Marketing workshop recommendations?

Does anyone have recommendations for great workshops they've attended
in the Bay Area recently, having to do with UX, design, or marketing?
A full-day or half-day workshop would be ideal. I've read through
the IxDA events listings, of course, but would like to get the input
of the whole community. Thanks!

UX Roadmaps

I manage a small UX team within the Product department of a .com. As
part of the overall company strategy each department leader has been
tasked with creating a (gulp) 5 year road map of their respective
departments. I'm not a business school grad and have only seen road
maps and have never created one. Has anyone out there done such a
thing for a UX group and if so do you have any advice or resources
that might help me out.

I would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks,
Chip

Google Reader: The Good and The Bad

After playing around with Google Reader, yes it is my first time, I
found it to be an amazing web app. However, I also found some awkward
stuff going on, for example:

- Add a subscription button: Searching feeds and adding using one
text field? Doesn't really line up in my mind.

Its Just UX

During the closing plenary of the IA Summit on Sunday, Jesse James
Garrett said that “Information Architecture is not a profession …
and neither is Interaction Design … we have and always will be User
Experience Designers”. I’m paraphrasing a little from memory (the
podcast isn’t out yet) - but the gist is there.

I’m a big believer in this viewpoint (and I chaired the IA Summit
last year!).

[Event] Qualification for the UX Challenge (Arctic edition) is open

I'm one of the insane people organizing UX Challenge, Arctic edition
(http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=38434) :-).

To sum up for those of you who haven't followed the recent
discussion: The aim is to create a prototype of a web based system
that will create dialogue between people in a conflict.

The case we're working with is the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. We
are inviting representatives from both sides of the conflict to help
us gain insight and understanding about how we can help them.

ADVICE: Is the UX Intensive right for me?

I've been considering Adaptive Path's UX Intensive, but have heard
conflicting reports about it's value. Here's my situation:

* Sole UX Designer for an early dot-com startup
* First time holding the title of "UX Designer"
* 8+ years of web design experience (visual design & front-end
development)
* Have worked in freelance, agency, and in-house environments
* Poses many of the soft skills (aka instinct, intuition, etc.) but
lack some hard skills (aka formal training, methodology, "lingo",
etc.)

Is the UX Intensive right for me? Or should I look elsewhere?
