At some point, someone created a Facebook page dedicated to curly fries and scientists have since determined that a correlation exists between “liking” that particular page and high intelligence. So does this mean that smart people generally like deep-fried potatoes? Or maybe they just like stuff you can find at Arby’s. Do the less intelligent like waffle fries? What about people who crave sweet potato fries?
Donna Spencer is leading a half-day workshop at edUi. Spencer is an author and internationally recognized UX practitioner. We wanted to get to know her a bit better, so we asked her a few questions.

Steve Krug is delivering our opening keynote at this year’s edUi conference. Krug is an author and icon in the field of usability and user research. We wanted to get to know him a bit better, so we asked him a few questions.
