As attendees know, about 80% of the Gnomedex audience has a laptop open in front of them. Most of them (myself included) aren’t taking notes most of the time. So what are they doing?
At a couple of different times today, I walked around the back of the room, looked over people’s shoulders (from a, uh, respectful distance) and took a straw poll of what Gnomedex attendees seemed to be doing. These are the results:
Browsing random web page: 17
Coding or viewing terminal window: 11
Microsoft Outlook: 9
Microsoft Word: 8
Google Reader: 6
Google Search: 4
