The Transcription Stint for Coterminus

It could have been so easy: Handing over 70 mp3-files to an agency and have them transcribing all the conversations for my book "Coterminus" I've had recorded during my 4 month "Tour de Joy". A snap. I'd then would spend my time here in Porto Pollo, Sardinia, reading the transcription and answering questions such as:

  • Which statements are relevant for the book?
  • Which statements can be citated as is?
  • Which statements are indicative for a certain chapter and could be used as a heading teaser?
  • Which statements need reconfirmation prior to using them?
  • Which statements won't make it into the book but would be perfect for the Blog/YouTube?
  • Which questions have I asked but not noted?
  • Which answers did I get without explicitly asking?
  • Time stamps in the video footage (easy as this is done by the software)
  • Where am I missing clarification?

Things changed when topics were discussed during the filmed and taped conversations that have the potential to end careers when published or accidentially end up on the wrong hands. Or marriages, for that matter…

On the other hand, from my experience right now, it is helpful to have nother dive into the discussions and kind of live through those again. New sparks in my brain. Whatever. The most important tool for me right now is the "F5 Transcription Pro" foot pedal:

The weather and time of day does not make a difference, either. Nor does the wind. Remember: I'm working from one of the sweetest windsurf spots in Europe:

OK. Not too bad during the night:

But. During the day, the view hurts!
