I came across some awesome meeting notes I took a few months ago. Here is what amounted to about three pages of what a colleague of mine coined, "paper.twitter.com". Essentially you write short quips on the page, that roughly equate to the length of a tweet on twitter.com, written with the first posts at the top, and then continuing down the page, as you go. (And yes, I literally wrote the timestamps out on the page, in the beginning, they are here in this post, and then I stopped doing it because it was cumbersome. Ha ha.)
Fascinatingly enough, it actually turned in to a great writing exercise that brought up some interesting thoughts on the meeting I was in.

That's some words there. - posted seconds ago from a pen When you have 10 different systems performing your main business competency, the shit gets crazy fast. I suggest the new name for our all-inclusive system be, "The thing, at the place, with the guy, that does the magic stuff and what not." Short and snappy. This meeting should have a word bingo board that includes the words, "The Intersect", "event", "platform", "innovate", "integrate", and "consolidation". And if it was a drinking game, I'd so be hammered right now. I just found out I'm part of "Business Operations". Uhh, cool. Is the Automation Team going to be called the A-Team? I'll bring that up @ tomorrows meeting -By @Mario 3:05pm And does that make the BSC the "B" team? "Changes" sometimes means "Oh shit, watch out!". I need a shirt that says, "Top Performer". "...in bed." "No longer with the company", sounds like, so morbid. **C**ost **R**eduction **A**pplication **P**rogram Three pages of posts, I'm awesome. It seems figuring out how long something should take is way more difficult that it should be.
