Alexander Ambard
User Experience Researcher, PARC and User Experience Researcher, PARC. University of California, Santa Cruz grad. University of Oregon grad.
My experience with Dan at Xerox PARC is that he has strong UX skills, is industry savvy, and can hold his own doing research in a variety of ... different fields.

Jared Spool
Co-Founder, Center Centre and Conference Chairperson, User Interface Conference.
Jared is not only a foundational educator in the field of user-centered design, he's also an inspiring and insightful speaker. He will let y ... ou know how to figure out what really helps real people with real problems (without which you have little chance at success).

Brad Brighton
They're my friends  •  Founder, UsePayIt LLC
I will not answer the question as asked, as "entrepreneur" has been getting a bad name recently, as people seek quick money over building us ... eful and sustainable things. But Brad is smart, capable, passionate, and cares about making things that work for people and their own good, and making it work right.
