Sketchnotes on Seth Godin Interview

Remember taking notes while listening to teachers, speakers, professors, et al at university or for on-the-job training classes? Well, I do. At best, my notes were a punctilious outline, as stale as that extra challah sitting on the icy snow pack in my front yard waiting for birds to peck at it or, more commonly, a jumbled mess of chicken scratches and sloppy penmanship jumbled with arrows, circles, and underlines. Doug Neill, a self-professed “sketchnoter” from Portland, Oregon, showed me a new way forward for visualizing our own work at On Being.
While listening to Krista Tippett’s interview with Seth Godin, Doug did some real-time, visual note taking and created this sketchnote of the conversation. A most delightful and unexpected surprise. Would this be something you, the listener and the reader, might be interested in seeing each week?
