His workshop is entitled: Working in a Digital Visual Environment: The Desktop Rethought, Session # 407, Tuesday, January 29, 2008, 1:30pm - 3:00pm in the Concordia Room at the Westin San Francisco Hotel.

"We're very excited to have Harlan Hugh as a facilitator and guest speaker at the VizThink'08 Conference and expand the collaboration between the world's best visual thinkers and corporations that can utilize their techniques," said Tom Crawford, chief executive officer, VizThink.

"Given the amount of information we think about and work with each day, we can benefit tremendously from digital environments based on the most powerful information processor in existence, the human mind," said Harlan Hugh, Chief Executive Officer of TheBrain. "Associative computing has no limits. Any piece of information can be linked and connected to anything else, like your mind, triggering all relevant information. This helps us filter through and assimilate vast amounts of information that simply cannot be represented through search lists and folders."

Harlan Hugh's session will explore new paradigms for working with and visualizing information. "Rethinking the Desktop" will be a highly interactive and instructional workshop giving participants the opportunity to express their ideas and thoughts with different technologies from the past and present, focusing on how we interact with information each day.

Topics to be covered include:

  •     Introduction to visualization and modes of visual communication
  •     Creating information networks of Thoughts
  •     Integrating files and web pages from your perspective
  •     Example Brains and case studies for getting things done
  •     Getting started on your own personal interface for your desktop

Harlan Hugh focuses on user interface design and information architecture. His passion is helping people organize and share information the way they naturally think about it, transcending the boundaries of traditional computing. He works with both government and private corporations implementing software solutions as well as developing effective strategies for improved information access, time critical analysis, content sharing and collaboration.

Harlan's innovation and patents in the field of information visualization led to the TheBrain's Technologies award winning product line and acclaimed software, PersonalBrain. PersonalBrain's revolutionary visual interface and associative linking enables users to connect their digital content into a dynamic visual interface that reflects their thinking and increases productivity.
