Alt Design Summit Wrap

I just finished up three fantastic days at Alt – a social media conference held at the Grand America in Salt Lake City.

Wow. Wow. Wow. What an inspiring event. I am filled with ideas that I can’t wait to share!

I thought I would start by sharing a few notables:

  • My brown suede boots were the most sensible shoes in the entire building. Don’t believe me? Check out some of the photos here.
  • While there was some fantastic fashion on display, most of the bloggers dressed, well, just like the bloggers at every other conference.
  • The content was great – something for everyone one from those who began blogging five years ago, to those who started blogging five months ago.
  • While the conference content was amazing, some of the best experiences are always spontaneous conversations that happen in the hall.
  • The attendees of this conference are far more professional than those I have met at previous conferences.
  • My favorite session was Beyond the Advertising Banner – mostly because they went beyond the obvious with the topic.
  • I now understand why Heather Armstrong, aka Dooce is as well loved as she is.

I wanted to share some of the tips and tidbits I learned while there.

I updated my Twitter profile frequently. I pulled relevant tweets and saved them in an Excel document that you can download.

I took notes during most of the classes. To review my notes from Alt Summit panels, please read this document.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the conference or my notes, I’d be happy to clarify!

    You were there and we didn’t meet?! Sad face. I have to think my shoes were even more sensible than yours (sneakers), lol. It was a good time, wasn’t it?

    • Tauni says:

      Aimee, I had such a wonderful time…It was a last minute decision to go, but I am soooo glad I did. Let me know if you do a wrap up post. I am going to try and capture them all in one place :)

    Okay, mental note that I’m coming home and reading this CAREFULLY tonight. I can’t wait to read it and pretend like I went. Thank you SOOOO much for taking notes for the rest of us!! Right now, I stupidly agreed to trade 12 frozen meals with people in my neighborhood. Which sounded like a good idea. But 12 pans of enchiladas turns out to be a fairly large pain in the butt!!

    • Tauni says:

      L, Ahhahahaha. I am totally laughing. You are making 12 pans of enchiladas? Sound delish. Since you’re making so many, maybe you should just whip up a batch for me :) Let me know if you want to delve into any of the issues I covered in the notes a bit farther. Would be happy to meet up for lunch/brunch/something. And you’ll be there next year, right?

  5. [...] all that was talked about…. but a few tips and tricks that I jotted down. Thanks to Tauni for her recap docs i remembered a few more [...]

    WOW thanks for your awesome note taking! I was just mad at myself for the little notes I scibbled down! Now I can share with my husband the stuff he paid for…hahah

    • Tauni says:

      Keisha, so glad you found my notes helpful…I am such a visual learner, if I don’t take notes it kind of goes in one ear and out the other, you know? Am hoping to update this post to include a roundup of other’s Alt posts so that I can keep it all in one place :)
