Ideas for acitivities for users at our annual conference.

Hi All,

We're having our annual user conference very soon and we're looking to have an interactive component to our presentation at the end where our users are asked to do something.

As for that certain something, we're not sure yet what to do.

We had thought of a design workshop but thought that wouldn't be too useful to have 20 some odd people argue about the merits of the design - it's better left to testing.

So I'm coming to you fine folks for ideas.  What kind of activity we can offer our users that make it entertaining and engaging?

Any help is appreciated.

Interaction design for developers

Hi all,

I'm in charge of a 2 day workshop with a bunch of skilled developers
regarding user experience. I want to show that an understanding of the users
interaction flow and the user goals are as important as technical knowledge.

One of the things I want to try out is focusing on a top down approach for
development to break away from the usual focus on the platform and

One idea I have is to split them up in smaller groups, hand over a pack of
feature requests to half of them, and a few user scenarios to the other
