    If you have tons of time, read all the posts on Core77 about this conference...Really eye opening stuff.

    I especially liked Allan Chochinov's rules:

    1. Acknowledge privilege: Being a designer does not give you the right to be a CRAP maker
    2. Use the word "consequence": Talk about the implications of your actions
    3. Question authority: Don't wait for permission
    4. Surround yourself with the awesomest people you can: Go to parties, drink wine, make friends
    5. Don't play fair: If making something gorgeous will get your clients on board, do it
    6. Be intentionally dumb: Start with the most obvious and ridiculous solutions
    7. Redistribute (then reduce reuse and recycle): Find materials that are already out there first
    8. Broaden your market: Think beyond your audience
    9. indulge discursive design: Do something that's wildly inappropriate 10 Talk to anyone who will listen: Get the word out much to do...
