Folio: Show 2006 And Blogging
Weâ€™re all back from the Folio: Show, which concluded on Wednesday in New York. And weâ€™ve more or less decompressed from an event that, by all accounts, was a home run -- despite the fact that there was another magazine event in sunnier Phoenix.
Interestingly, and gratifyingly, this was the first year that the show picked up a fair share of blog coverage (FishbowlNY in particular). This is a good thing, because while we could have blogged from the event in realtime, we obviously didnâ€™t. Which goes to show that yes, we all know thereâ€™s a place for blogging in our content mix, yet actually organizing our time around all the other behind-the-curtain event responsibilities â€“ from moderating panels, introducing speakers, writing a show daily, covering sessions for the newsletter, networking, cruising for news tips, and helping out where we could with event logistics â€“ is another story altogether. Old habits die hard. Time management: a fundamental, yet critical, skill in an editorâ€™s ever-widening set. This might seem duh-worthy, but when youâ€™re caught up in the day-to-day production of an event, details like that are easy to miss. Weâ€™ll surely incorporate realtime communications from future events.
Like I said, the show was a bell-ringer, and if you couldnâ€™t make it, hereâ€™s what we, and some others, have observed:
