All the slides (and more) from IASummit 2014

Couldn’t make it to San Diego? Want to relive your favorite talk? 

The 2014 IA Summit was held March 26-30, 2014 in San Diego. Three years ago, at the 2011 conference, Martin Belam was nice enough to collect and curate all the slides from all the presenters, which was a tremendous resource in the weeks and months following the event.

This year, Martin was a keynote speaker, so I’ve attempted to take up the mantle and collect as many links to slide decks/blog posts/handouts/Twitter profiles relevant to the presentations as possible. Please ping me @creativenewman or comment here with any materials that I haven’t found yet.

Have a bulletpoints, sketchnotes, a Storify, or a blog post that you’ve created in response to a presentation? Send those my way, too! You can also get a flavor of the event from the photos and tweets at Seen.
