About a third of the way through my first day at #DasSmacc I had an off the cuff idea to make some notes…and then remembered I had my i-pencil in my bag. Here is a collection of my notes from this wonderful conference….with two caveats:
It is real time writing; there will be spelling errors (and I’m a terrible speller on a good day)
If you’re in the crew of #FOAM dis-enthusiasts…feel free not to read, or indeed read, but with a view to pre-empting something that has been surfacing a lot over the past few days:
Yes I know not all of this is earth shattering.
No I don’t claim to be as clever, or cleverer than you.
Yes I do actually sometimes need to be reminded about the importance of really thinking about how we treat each other at work.
No I will never stop trying to get better at that.
Yes I know some of it is just opinion, but I didn’t go to #DasSmacc to be bombarded by three entire days of stodgy information that I would have no hope of remembering a day later: that’s not how I learn.
I went for the variety (and there was a real variety of science, EBM, humanities, stories and just plain entertainment)
I went to feel part of a community (which I did)
I went to be to be inspired (which I was).
I went to have some fun (which I did)
Look out for further notes to come on all of those thing that interested me, here.
You can find all of these notes on my twitter moments – please do comment on twitter, share with me your insight or experience and let me know where you think I’ve gotten things wrong. I have much to learn : )
