I would like to congratulate everyone in the UPA China and UPA
Hong Kong chapters on the success of User Friendly 2004, held
in Beijing on December 18-19, 2004. I was honored to be part of
It is a mark of the strength that you were able organize such
an ambitious event in such a short period of time. The arrangements
went off flawlessly from beginning to end, creating a friendly
atmosphere for learning and networking.
It is also a sign of the depth of interest in usability in China
that this conference could bring together so many people. I was
impressed with the enthusiasm, the knowledge and the skills evident
in the audience, and met many people I will value as colleagues.
The presence of so many important companies was impressive. I
hope that this demonstrates a continued commitment to usability
as part of their product development process.
With such an exciting beginning, the future of UPA China can only
be positive. I look forward to many more successful activities
to promote usability in China.
