Scribing is an act of empathy.
When I am scribing, I am listening to the spoken word with my whole self.
I am listening to the content on as many levels as possible; from the raw information through to the meaning communicated through emotion and body language.
I enjoy scribing long-form conversations, which can last hours. I also enjoy full-speed scribing TED and TEDx Talks, which can be only six to 18 minutes in length. Both forms of scribing have their unique value.
