- View SourceJanuary 3, 2007: UXnet locales have a home on the web
Yes, UXnet  remains a work in progress, and I remain committed to its
development (in fact, I've just rejoined its executive board). Like any
other volunteer-driven effort, it's slow going but wonderful when it finally
starts to come together.
We're having one of those wonderful moments right now. UXnet launched new
functionality that enables its "Local Ambassadors" to provide information
about their respective locales, as well as local UX-related groups and
Local Ambassadors are there to serve as hubs, networkers, brokers, and
ultimately activists to support UX growth on the ground around the world.
So far we have almost 100 ambassadors representing 73 locales in 29
countries around the world. And now they finally have a place on the web.
This is very, very cool; check it out . It's been fun to watch as pages
launch for each individual locale.
Does this look like something you'd like to participate in? Go to the page
and see if your locale is represented. If it's not--or if you'd like to
team up with whomever is already working as your local Local
Ambassador--contact our Local Ambassadors Recruiter, John Sheridan:
Endless kudos to Jess Frederick, Keith Instone, John Sheridan, John Ferarra,
Sean Van Tyne, Dirk Knemeyer, and probably some other people that I'm
forgetting for their hard work on launching this infrastructure.
