TMC16 My Doodle Notes (#TMC16 Series Part 8)

I have seen more and more doodle/sketch notes around Twitter and figured I would try it at TMC.  I didn't know how many notes I would be taking.  I bought a pretty new notebook and 4 colored gel pens - green, red, blue, and purple, and off I went.

As I started to take them, I thought, hey this is pretty cool and fun.  Then, I continued to take them.  Then, I started to comments on them.  Then, I felt the pressure to be sure to capture everything the best I could because now I wasn't only taking notes for little old me but for everyone in my session, people who couldn't make the session and even the person giving the session.

Thanks came in the form of tweets, of course:

I apologize in advance if I spelled someone's name wrong or quoted something incorrectly.  I will post all my notes in order of appearance.  In another post I will do my take aways.

BTW: I loved the schedule.  True, it was a lot, but I loved having three mornings of the same session to dig into, to get to know the presenters and my classmates, to get to come back and follow up on the conversations from the day before.  I loved the 5 minute My Favorites - get a quick glimpse into something cool and allow to me to follow up and research more.  And, then the afternoon sessions were a nice hour long to get some more goodies in.  I liked the variety of the length of times.
