Broadcasting Tip Sheet [30 Apr 2017|07:04pm]
I mentioned this in the BCD States thread, and people seemed to think it was a good idea.

I've compiled a list of tips and unspoken rules for first-time broadcasters. At the state tournament, I saw a lot of people who could have gotten farther if they had known some of these things, and the people who do well are often broadcasters who have coaches who are experienced in broadcasting. Broadcasting is sometimes a forgotten category, but it's served me well for four years, and I would love to pass on my limited knowledge to others.

The document is here. Comments are enabled so that other experienced broadcasters can add in their tips or tell me if I got anything wrong, since my knowledge is, in part, subjective and does not encapsulate all of broadcasting.

Thanks, limited prep, for a good four years.

2017 Class A States Predictions [26 Apr 2017|09:41pm]
States is just two days away — that's pretty crazy. To me, it's even crazier that three years removed from graduating high school, I'm still cranking these out, and I'm afraid to announce that this year will likely be my last. After states this year, I'll likely write a longer reflection on lessons learned from trying to predict forensics placements to pass down some knowledge, that way any insights I've discovered can be leveraged by coaches or prediction-makers in years to come. I'll also reveal some of my methods, biases and personal identity (it's no fun if LiveJournal is always anonymous), so you can examine my body of guesswork more critically and I can be held accountable for what I've written on this forum.

In any case, I've had a lot of fun combing through placements and making data-driven guesses. With midterms coming up, I'm a bit behind schedule, so I'm releasing public address predictions tonight, and interp will be posted as I get around to the individual categories over the next two days as separate subtopics. Please discuss these category-by-category in the appropriate subthread to keep this as organized as possible (I know it's all going to chaos, but a boy can dream). Lastly, best of luck to everyone, from MIFA's hard-working judges and dedicated organizers to this year's competitors—coming from the perspective of an alumnus, please enjoy forensics with everything you've got, as it'll be over before you know it.
