We’re all back from the Folio: Show, which concluded on Wednesday in New York. And we’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 didn’t. Which goes to show that yes, we all know there’s a place for blogging in our content mix, yet actually organizing our time around all the other behind-the-curtain event responsibilities – 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 – is another story altogether. Old habits die hard. Time management: a fundamental, yet critical, skill in an editor’s ever-widening set. This might seem duh-worthy, but when you’re caught up in the day-to-day production of an event, details like that are easy to miss. We’ll surely incorporate realtime communications from future events.
Like I said, the show was a bell-ringer, and if you couldn’t make it, here’s what we, and some others, have observed:
