Hi All

After giving a talking at UXCamp Brighton about Web Intents, I ended up
talking to a few designers about it and how they would love to help with
its development and adoption. In fact they all felt that the design
community was somehow left out of the traditional specification process,
when it has a lot to offer.

So, for the past couple of months I have been working with two designers
Danny Hope and Andy Dennis to organise a UX design event. We are trying
a slightly new format that we've coined a "design push". The idea is to
take a current technology or topic and focus a group of UX designers on
a day of open collaboration with the aim positively adding to its
development and adoption.

The first "design push" will be on Web Intents, in Brighton UK on the 25
February 2012 - http://designpush.org/webintents/

We already have quite a few well known UX designers such Harry Brignull
and Cennydd Bowles committed to the event. Hopefully Paul Kinlan will
join us (schedule permitting). Ben Ward from Twitter is also considering
popping over.  

This event is invite-only, but if you feel like we've missed you off the
list or you know someone who would want to come, please drop me a email,

We will of course make all the work from the day publicly accessible
after the event and feedback any outcomes to this list.
