The night is getting dark in a deserted convention center (at NECC) - surreal with some of the audience listening in the Second Life room and Roxanne, Janice, and I listening to the ongoing podcast as it was happening (edtechtank.com/chat). Kind of weird just sitting a few feet away trying to listen with it delayed. Members of the audience shared their highlights of NECC. Ian Jukes presentation, the panel with David Warlick, Gwen Solomon, et al, and the main points were the connections and the people. So fun! I was lucky to add something on kids and podcasting.
The Unconference met on Saturday, June 23rd. Connecting face-to-face meeting the people you read. Wow!

The networking alone made it a success, but it was the conversations that are going to stick with me."
I was only able to attend after 3pm - however, want to share the sessions and networking that happened thanks to Steve Hargadon and so many others.

Iím dealing with something that is so new to me and realize Iím not the only one dealing wit this. Iím kind of caught in the middle - a new middle. My father has Alzheimers and Iím at that age where I forget where I put my keys. My kids are on their own but still need us. Being a baby boomer is boomeranging so hereís a fun video on remembering.
