Skim The Chats Too… please

Posted in Articles, and Events

By Paul Albertson

With so many educational sessions packed into the UX Writer Conference ’21 June 8 – 9 event, you might be tempted to beeline it for the recordings and feel like you got everything. But before you do, peek at the chats too.

Take for example this string of texts about making copy both friendly and concise, culled from a public chat during the Deeper Dive session, Developing Better Copy.

Note: we replaced first and last names with initials to preserve privacy.

This is a wonderful exchange between colleagues, effectively crowdsourcing ideas among qualified practitioners. And it’s just one of several during the conference.

The exchange above is not just helpful from a professional development standpoint, it also underscores a subtle and extraordinary benefit to the online experience—an ability to capture valuable impromptu exchanges between professionals in real-time from, well, everywhere.

So, in short, when you check out the recordings, do yourself a favor and skim the chats too.

Preparations are underway for the UX Writer Conference ‘21 taking place online
October 5 – 6.
