Strč prst skrz krk

If it is Tuesday, I must be in Prague (Praha)...

Today was World Usability Day 2006, and as they did last year, the Sun Prague user interface design team helped host the Prague edition of World Usability Day - with a full agenda of speakers (text in Czech). I was a last minute supplement to my boss Harry Burks' keynote talk. He and I co-delivered our presentation (I got to do all the fun demos).

Being as I had a sore throat from all of my travels (first DC for the second TEITAC meeting, then a brief 25 hours in Denmark, and now Prague), I rather felt as if I had stuck my finger through my throat, and so began my remarks accordingly...

Prague is a beautiful old city, and I would be remiss if I didn't share some of my photos. The Charles Bridge (Karlův most) over the Vltava River is spectacular at night. Above it is the St. Vitus Cathedral (Katedrála svatého Víta) and Prague Castle (Pražský hrad). Alfons Mucha's work is visible everywhere in Prague, but perhaps nowhere more strikingly than in a stained glass window in St. Vitus Cathedral. No photo collection of Prague would be complete without the astronomical clock of Old Town Hall (Staroměstská radnice). And finally, I wanted to share with you one of the incredibly detailed marionette figures (available for sale to tourists and folk art aficionados).
