Newsflash: Your web sites are ugly and hard to use. Well-muscled, fully-grown men with goatees, risque motorcycle tattoos, and heads shaved by broken beer bottles are reduced to blubbering like a babies when they try to navigate that tangled morass of spaghetti you call an interface. Iron-willed, wrinkled, war-hardened emergency room nurses named Brunnhilde who have viewed and treated the most gruesome injuries known to man hide their eyes in disgust when they glimpse your grotesquely dissonant layout. Dude, there's only one thing that can make Chuck Norris cry - your web site.

Face it. You're stuff's a mess. But there's a solution, it's called UX, look into it ... by coming to this meeting. We've got experts that'll show you how to beautify, simplify, and ergonomify your sad attempts at web perfection while simultaneously making you a better looking, more intelligent, and an all around more magnificent human being. In the past we've shown you how to make web sites, now we'll show you how to make web sites that people actually want to use.
