Raw Notes and Pictures from Meeting

Following each of the breakout sessions, we transcribed the hand-written raw notes that were generated from each discussion. While these are not intended to be “documents of record,” we provide them here for those participants who would like to refer back to them.

  • Raw Notes – Accomplishments – Groups identified DIAGRAM’s most important accomplishments to date.
  • Raw notes – Spectrum Exercise – Participants were invited to think of the most polarizing, controversial statement they could about our field and then physically line up on a spectrum from “completely agree” to “completely disagree.”
  • Raw notes – Breakout 1 – Topics include: 3D printing, STEM, Sample Content, and Branding.
  • Raw notes – Breakout 2 – Topics include: Outreach, Image Repository/Registry, Tools, and Metrics
  • Raw Notes – Final Breakouts – Topics include: Press Release, Future Brainstorming, Sample Book on Steroids, Estate Planning, Natural Extensions, Going Big!

Finally, we have created a Dropbox folder with photographs from our time together, including shots from our breakouts, speed geeking, and the Tuesday evening reception at the lodge.
