Chrome and Mozilla are working on a new concept called Web Intents/Actions. It extends the hyperlink idea, allowing sites to share features and functionality. A big part of the idea revolves around creating a collection of verbs (calls to action). I want to do a workshop, explaining the Web Intents concept and then ask the following questions:
How do we define 'the right words'?
How do you sort services into collections under a word?
How do you come up with calls to action that work with the broadest audience?
This session will focus on methods to get your clients discussing design in a manner that results in useful input for your project. I am also hoping we will have time to hear your methods and share ideas on the subject.

URL design is really important. Important enough that we mustn't let a cult of 'friendly URL' despots screw it up for everybody.
During this discussion I'll sound off about the fundamentals of URL design. Why it should be included upfront as part of the high-level design of the site IA and UX design, and how getting it right helps web-based products successfully fit into the wider ecosystem of the web. How can you optimise URLs for different requirements, such as readability (by humans and machines), shareability, hackability, navigability, etc...?
