> > M E D I A M AT T E R S BY CHRIS BROGAN << USING NEW TECH FOR OLD PURPOSES WE’RE STARTING TO SEE IPADS MINGLING WITH LAPTOPS (AND PEN AND PAPER) AT OUR CONFERENCES.

I don’t always advocate using new tech for old purposes (I still carry index cards), but sometimes it can positively impact the foundation of a meeting or event. Hashtags & Notes If your content isn’t top secret, promote a hashtag for taking notes via Twitter. Pick out a few characters that are not likely to be used by others. A note would look like this: “Brogan says to divide time equally between prospecting, executing and customer service. #clx11” You have more than one person taking notes from all your sessions. Delegates who couldn’t hit specific sessions at least get the notes. Online attendees share their thoughts. People who couldn’t attend at all follow along. Your entire community has access. Compare the hashtag’s content with the written 40 one+ 07.11
