90% of Success is Just Showing Up
Last night Vanessa, Corey, Victor and I were all geared up to attend a networking event around designing for the mobile web. After all, we have recently engaged Microstrategy to design a series of ads to promote their products on the iPad and iPhone .
And recently we developed the user interface and design for the Annual Reviews Biosciences iPad app, a groundbreaking article search and browse tool for the scientific community.
We were ready to share our experiences and hear from other DC web professionals on this important topic. Alas, no one showed up.
But we did not let that stop us. We talked mobile. Just the four of us discussed our past projects and what’s on the horizon. We identified where we’d like to learn more. We kicked around ideas for projects we’d like to work on. We had a great time.
And we learned that networking can happen when you least expect it – even with the people you work with every day.
