CHIFOO part deux

Two observations on my second CHIFOO meeting:

  1. I’m batting 1000 for striking up random conversations at the preceding CHIFOOd event and then finding out later that the person was the night’s speaker. This is despite having previously read about the nights’ topics and seeing photos of said speakers. Thankfully, both speakers were very approachable and seemed to regard contrary points of view as springboards for discussion rather than dismissing me as being argumentative (which would not entirely be a stretch of the imagination).
  2. As the night’s main presentation began I noticed that in a room full of usability geeks the preferred method of note-taking was pen & paper.
