In their august email newsletter AIGA/NY announced a free seminar by Noble Desktop on the topic of “Latest Web Technologies”. Intrigued by the details of the event, I signed up. I got a confirmation letter and a reminder the day before the event. So, last night I ventured over to the event location, even got there 5 minutes early to then have the lady at the door tell me: “Sorry, the event is full”.
I was completely flabbergasted. What do you mean, the event is full? And pointed to my r.s.v.p. printout! I then was told about ‘first come first serve’ and something along the lines of fire code, and maxed out.
Fairly upset I then proceeded t do a little angry Rumpelstiltskin impersonation.
I emailed AIGA when I got home suggesting to reconsider their affiliation with Noble Desktop. Or maybe they should just rename their company to “Not So Noble Desktop”. I just checked ‘notsonobledesktop.com’ is available.
