Some Other Things About Chris Koenig
In my opinion, Chris Koenig is a great community person. Chris and I have worked several times on creating some really cool World Usability Day events. Two years ago, Chris was able to get some Ford cars parked between the Sabre campus buildings, when Sustainability was the WUD theme. Chris leads the Give Camp effort for MS (which is truly inspiring), which has creatives and developers working to update non-profit sites. Chris had some funny pictures of a camp site that he had setup in an office building for the last Give Camp. Chris has been a constant at DFW-UPA, .NET, and any Geek meeting in Dallas. On any given night, Chris is probably talking or listening somewhere in the Dallas community.
