Enjoyed getting out and about on a school night to learn some more about open data and really enjoyed the talks with a little networking for good measure.

World Sketchnote Day 2016

As it’s World Sketchnote Day 2016 tomorrow, I couldn’t let it go by un-mentioned. Looks like it will be a day full of enthusiasm and evangelism for sketchnoting.

The Ghost Road

Impressively written and evocative book about WW1 and the two protagonists approaches to the horrors.

The Psychopath Test

05 Aug 2015 in Sketchnotes Tagged: Books

I needed a book for my long train journey back from the excellent as usual IWMW, so popped into the charity shop and came up with ‘The Psychopath Test’ by Jon Ronson. I really enjoyed the ensuing 5 hours on the train, with an entertaining and interesting tour of mental illness, psychiatry, psychology and the media. Much more fun than it sounds.

Some controversial opinons about the extent of treating our users as customers. I suspect that it might be the narcissism of small differences - can’t see anyone not agreeing that people deserve great services and experiences, maybe what we call the people shouldn’t be a banner to rally behind.

Talking out some new ways that JISC is aiming to support the sector, Michael was especially keen on things as services - not really my area, but it was nice to have some more technical meaty stuff along with the strategising.

A bit of an eye opener, this session from Linkedin. The scale of it and the services it’s offering mean that Universities need to have better plans for how to react and maybe even embrace it.

One great point that resonated from this talk was - ‘stop copying each other’. Guilty as charged, but will try to be better.

Digital isn’t an end in itself, but a way of reaching the main goal - which is great user experience.

Beautifully delivered explanation of Aberdeen’s efforts to be better by raconteur Mike McConnell. Really frank and engaging talk with tons to think about. I’ve a feeling I’ll banging on about this one for a while.

The clever people at University of Kent talked about how they very quickly built a tour app.

A ton of things to think about from this long session - hence the pages of notes.

Welcome - IWMW2015

Brian’s welcome to the iwmw15 event, covering some of the key themes and setting the context - especially for lots of new attendees - which is good.

Richard always has very tasteful slides, and this was no exception. Luckily, he also had plenty of really interesting substance about how Bath’s content teams work too.

Mandy Phillips - IWMW15

Fascinating talk by Mandy Phillips from Liverpool John Moores, where if anything she undersold just how much the team had managed to achieve. There was a palpable sense of envy when she talked about spending money :-)

Really useful session in iBeacons, and similar proximity based sensors. Discovered practical advice on real world problems.
