ON NOVEMBER 4th
WE CELEBRATE MAKESENSEMESS
An Annual Celebration of Sensemaking hosted by Abby Covert
VIDEO NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE
On November 4th, 2022 sensemakers from across the globe met for our annual Celebration of Sensemaking. If you missed grabbing a ticket this year, FOMO-not! We have a video version for purchase. This year at Makesensemess we celebrated one of the sharpest and most versatile tools in a sensemaker's toolbox: the diagram.
Our 2022 line-up included guest stars, brave sensemakers, not-very-shocking-in-hindsight revelations, diagrams that made someone cry and quite a nerdy good time.
STEPHEN P. ANDERSON
DIAGRAM NERDS' WELCOME
Lifetime diagram nerd and sensemaker, Stephen P Anderson, kicked off the virtual party with a world premiere of his "Video Book Forward" for Stuck? Diagrams Help. And Abby did in fact cry.
"NO, REALLY ... WHAT IS A DIAGRAM?"
In this new talk, Abby got nerdy and specific about what we mean when we say the word diagram. She shares her journey to writing a book about diagramming and what she learned on her 18 month trek.
