I’m going to be honest here, this is going to be a mess of a post. I just came off of a three-day brain buffet at the SND conference in St. Louis and I’m still trying to make sense of everything that I saw and heard. It should give me post material on this site for the next six months at least. I had high expectations headed in and even those were blown away by the actual experience.
I actually feel most sorry for my students who will have to try and track the ideas I throw at them the next month – from responsive web design and google web fonts to Adonis Durado’s Visual Conceit and Dave Gray’s Gamestorming.
While I can’t recreate the entire conference for you, I can share some of the takeways I got from my three days. I can’t really tell you what to do with any of them at this point as I don’t even know what to do with them – I just know it will be something at some time. There’s some great stuff here. Check out the links and let me know in the comments what strikes a cord with you. You all probably won’t find each of the links as interesting as I do, but I promise each of you there will be something here that strikes a cord with you.
Next year’s SND conference will be next October in Cleveland. If you are anywhere near Cleveland or have the resources to get there, I’d highly recommend it.
