#dl09-User’s Point of View – Iphone instead of Laptop

Scary… I started typing Rupert Murdoch’s last name and three letters in and it typed the rest for me.

Love, love, love

  • I can hit double space and it puts down a period. Unfortunately,  I’ve been trying to do this this morning in e-mail and WordPress and it doesn’t seem to be working.
  • Can easily create mindmaps using an ap called SimpleMind Express.
  • Perfect for short messages and phrases like tweets.  Eventually I’ll get to writing in full paragraphs.
  • Copy and paste works great once you get the hang of it.
  • Sharing photos and diagrams I create on the phone is easy.

Absolutely abhor…

  • Come on put the Delete key farther away from the Return.
  • Selecting that tiny bit of text at the top of the field is a b—-.
  • WordPress ap doesn’t save all my changes each time I hit save $#@#!!!!!

Best Aps…

  • Facebook
  • Tweetdeck
  • SimpleMind Express

Although I’m thoroughly sick of making mindmaps, I think for taking brief notes while folks are talking in a preso, this is good.  It’s also excellent for real-time sharing and discussion during events.  I found myself tuning into what other people thought or were thinking during the keynote and other presos by using the #dl09 twitter feed.

As long as I am not sharing or presenting at a conference,  it’s completely possible to leave that extra 5-7 pounds at home and still participate and document things adequately.  I love simplicity.  I am taking some time to review the posts I have here and add notes or reflections on what I learned, specifically; how I might be able to apply directly or indirectly what I was able to pick up.

Overall, I think DevLearn 2009 did a pretty good job of encouraging and leveraging the connectivity via online social networks during the conference.  When asked what she learned at DL09, one woman noted that she discovered that her phone was not powerful enough.

I will say that over the weekend my iPhone sat unmolested in it’s charger most of the weekend after I came home from the conference. Good iPhone… now you can rest a bit.

Why?

My place outside of work to explore and make connections with the ideas and things (sometimes work-related) that I'm passionate about.
