In July we will be kicking off another WebVisions event in Portland, Oregon. This is our fifth year for the event so I thought it might be interesting to share with you some historical insight into WebVisions. Below is a list of links to the various sites speakers for each year of the event:

WebVisions 2001
Jeffrey Zeldman, Geoff Hiller, Heather Irwin, Gabe Kean, and Molly Sokolow
WebVisions 2002
Jesse James Garrett, Gabe Kean, Erik Natzke, Joe Shepter, Seb Chevrel, Kim Markegard, and Brad Smith

It seems that the event doubles if not triples in size every years. So I have high hopes of yet another record-breaking turnout this year. I hope to see you there. Also don't forget to check out the Portland UX events page if you happen to be in town.

Wow, someone must have gone to a *lot* of work to make sure that each of those sites stayed preserved and available all these years later. That guy should get an award...
