Microfame

Earlier this week, I was at the WAN-IFRA Youth Engagement Summit in Warsaw. I had a lot of fun doing the graphic recording at the conference and at the award ceremony for the World Young Reader Prize (Flickr set). There was a lot of interest in my drawings, and pictures immediately started going up on Twitter,  so I decided to share some of those tweets with you.

Media Hack Day

Last weekend, I went to the Media Hack Day organized by WAN-IFRA in preparation for the World Publishing Expo. I didn’t get there until Sunday afternoon, just in time for the final presentations of the projects, which took place at breakneck (or in my case, breakwrist) speed. Each presentation was only allotted 3 minutes, so I could only make very sparse notes on each one. However, after I made a composite image, and added a border of small blue icons I had made in preparation for the event, I was very happy with the result.

Here’s an Idea …

Last week, I went to the Newsroom Innovation Ideathon organized by WAN-IFRA, as part of Tech Open Air Berlin. Among the participants were Adam Thomas from Storyful, Sebastian Horn from Sourcefabric, Christian Lüdtke from Etventure, Stephen Fozard and Cherrilyn Ireton from WAN-IFRA, Steffen Konrath from Liquid Newsroom, and Ulrich Schmitz from Axel Springer. While it took a while to get through the introductions, I really enjoyed the conversation, and I am confident that those ideas will be developed further during the follow-up hackathon planned for later this year. You can find my sketchnotes from the events on my Flickr page and on Slideshare.

UPDATE: One of the sketchnotes has been picked up by World of Print for their news item about the upcoming WAN-IFRA hackathons.
