Brian Bailey Preface to the Revised Edition

It's the pause the refreshes the corridors of power.

Refresh Dallas is here!

What is Refresh Dallas? I'll let Garrett Dimon, one of the creators tell you:

While there are many designers and web standards people in Dallas, there is no strong community presence. We hope to fix that by providing a web standards oriented design group for people to learn and share ideas about the present and future state of web development.

The first meeting will be held this Thursday in Plano. Check the site for details and let them know you're coming.

There are a number of terrific people involved in this and the kickoff topic looks terrific:

We’ll discuss the strengths and weaknesss of folksonomies, faceted classifications, site maps, wireframes, page description diagrams, HTML rapid prototyping, and more.

If you're in the DFW Metroplex and interested in standards-driven web design with a heart for usability, don't miss this chance to be part of a brand-new community. I plan on being there along with Brad and Jeph - leave a comment if you'll be stopping by.

And while you're leaving a comment, win 25 bonus points for the song reference in the title.
