SXSW Design for Community
The last track of the day put me in the presence of the uber-talented Jeff Veen and Derek Powazek for Derek's presentation on "Design for Community." He spoke to a packed room of community-site webmasters, authors and artists, and his notes are on-line at www.powazek.com/dfc/. Derek is no stranger to creating gorgeously designed community sites, with Fray.com and Kvetch.com under this belt. SFStories.com is one of his most recent sites where he wanted to share his stories of life in San Francisco. Not to be greedy, he's created a "Your Stories" section where other people can add their own. After the panel I caught up with Drue Miller, another powerful design guru who had a presentation on Sunday.
