I sketchnoted TEDxOCADU live, and my new workflow is working out well. I’ve been moving more of my sketchnotes over to experivis.com – do folks still want to see them here? Might be handy. Anyway, I like reflecting on what worked well and what I can do even better, so this blog is still the best place for that.
For TEDxOCADU, here were my experiments:
Set up all the layers and saved them as placeholder PNGs beforehand so that I didn’t have to type in filenames or look up speaker names.
- Sketched during the dress rehearsal, and reused many of my images during the actual conference: great for knowing where people are going, although I still stuck with fairly regular layout.
- Used Dropbox to get the Twitter links, copied the URLs, and set up my list of hashtagged and linked tweets using ClipMate: great for tweeting things on the fly with just my laptop
- Set up a gallery page for updating throughout the day
- Set up a bit.ly link to track clicks for my gallery page
- Double-checked WiFi access: so much better than tethering through my phone
- Followed up with social media / web person in case they needed help getting the images up on the official site
- Eventually remembered to set up Google Analytics on experivis.com – added this to the checklist of things to do when spinning up a website…
Here are some things I can tweak next:
- Add more images to my ClipMate library
- Have a smoother delegation workflow so that I can get my sketchnotes typed in
- Figure out how to integrate text into the gallery view; maybe project-sketchnote relationship?
- More graphics! More! More!
- Don’t forget to have Archivist or some other Twitter archiver running in the background
- Consider Tweetreach or some other Twitter analytics report?
- Set up tracking links for each image, too, or always send people to the gallery page
