Design/Sustain: World Usability Day 2009 in Manila

For the fifth year, the World Usability Day will be in Manila. 😀

I’m working with the Adobe User Group – Philippines (AUGPhil) and the UST Information Systems Society to organize “Design/Sustain: World Usability Day 2009 in Manila,” the Manila event leg of the World Usability Day. Coincidentally, this is the last pending event I’m heading as the User Group Manager of AUGPhil. The event will be held on November 12, 2009 at the Thomas Aquinas Research Center (TARC) Auditorium at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila from 2-5pm.
