I thoroughly enjoyed all of the talks on Monday and Tuesday. I picked up on a couple recurring themes: a challenge to add more craftsmanship to our work in an era of modular CMS tools and a challenge to push our designs further and break new ground in web design.
Sketchnoting event went very well. My hand was a bit tired at the end of the 2 day event but not nearly as tired as I feared it might be. My mind was more fatigued from processing all of the excellent talks I was able to hear.
In the end I captured 82 pages of sketchnotes, using up a brand new Moleskine pocket sketchbook in the process. I had to use another sketchbook to capture the final Q&A session on Tuesday afternoon.
At the event, I had a chance to speak briefly with Jeffrey Zeldman and Eric Meyer about sketchnoting. They were both happy to have me there and very curious to see what I would capture. I hope you guys like the results. :-)
