One of the important challenges facing the effort to improve Drupal as tech comm tool is getting the right user experience for authors especially when we start adding things like conditional text, single-sourced content and DITA-style mapping.
Since the Design for Drupal event in Boston is the obvious place to connect with people who have either done this before or who have good insights into the problem, I've decided to propose a session on the subject. But since I'm not a UX expert, my clever plan is to make it a panel discussion. My contribution as chair would be talk about what we're planning for Drupal.org documentation and for the tech comm distro that's currently under discussion. Then I'm hoping to turn things over to my eminent co-panelists who can talk about the challenges that they faced and overcame (or perhaps failed to overcome, as the case may be).
But at this moment, I have no idea who these people might be. If you'd like to be on the panel yourself or you know someone else who should be there, please post here or drop me a line.
The submission deadline is May 15.
