    Now comes the after-conference exhalation. (And I just attended! Imagine the organizers.) My employer, Covenant Eyes, sent a small crew of people to the conference…8 of us in all.

  • IUE2009: Use Cases and Scenario-Based Design

    Today at IUE2009, I attended an excellent workshop led by Jan Moorman on scenario-based design and use cases.
