Last week I flew to Atlanta to attend the 2013 Society for Technical Communication (STC) Summit. In addition to attending many education sessions and networking with other technical communicators across the country, I also presented with a panel of other communicators on “Interviewing SMEs” (subject-matter experts). Oh, and I won an iPad from a vendor in the exhibit hall! This was my first time attending this conference and it was a great experience for me all around.
I didn’t have a whole lot of time to explore Atlanta, but I did get out of the hotel one evening and go on a Segway tour of the downtown area. I’d never used a Segway before, and although it was a bit more nerve-wracking stepping on it for the first time than I thought it would be, it was a ton of fun. It didn’t take me too long before I was zipping around the major attractions of downtown Atlanta on a two-hour tour. If you’ve never experienced riding on a Segway before, I highly recommend it!
