RT quote of the week: It was sort of like Disney World for genealogists – the happiest place on earth. -- Thomas MacEntee
We have received such excellent feedback from so many places on what to do differently at RootsTech next year, from getting class descriptions up earlier (#1 feedback) to reconsidering the backdrop in the plenary sessions (see Twitter for details). What's next? Well, inside the hallways of FamilySearch, we are gearing up to post some of the much requested broadcast sessions. I am working on a RT Playbook, collecting all of the contact information, feedback, and how-to-avoid-this-issue-next-time advice for the next round.
I just received the final list of recorded sessions yesterday from our amazing AV crew who worked hard to capture via Camtasia approximately 60 sessions. No details are being announced at this time with these sessions, but know that I am a big advocate of respecting individual ownership of material. Any such release would include a copyright statement that would not allow public viewings of these sessions. We don't pay our presenters, but we do want them to come back next year, so we ask all to honor their hard work, including not copying and distributing their syllabus material.
What's next for 2012? Rather than just feedback on 2011, I want to know how you would design 2012! Who do you want to see again? What new topics should we include? Who is your favorite speaker that you felt we overlooked this year? Would you like to see a giant chess set in the playground? What should the evening event be?
