@klmontgomery It was great! Very fun but tiring day. Wish I could do that at least once per month!
50 photos from TechCon08 today and my journey to and from are uploaded, titled and tagged! http://tinyurl.com/6oa8ra
Just noticed I turned 180,000 miles on Thursday enroute to the airport. I love Toyotas!
@klmontgomery thanks for the alert on Flickr’s facelift!
@cheryloakes50 Cheryl can get me invited to present at ACTEM next year?I would love to come to Maine and meet all the seedlings in person!
Just touched down in OKC. Is the rising moon amazing tonight over North America or what?!
@bengrey great to meet you too Ben. I agree the conference was a lot of fun today!
(sharing 3G cell phone network bandwidth)
Today was a day of several firsts - BYOB (bandwidth) and I shared it with folks in each session - my MacBook shared the connectivity great!
3G connectivity in the Chicago area today was VERY poor at the Midway airport. It was great in Naperville at the TechCon08 conference
hey @klmontgomery - I’m in St Louis! But just in the airport. Our flight is enroute to OKC and I’m not getting off - but I thot I’d say hi!
The dream is alive. Just bought 2 lbs of cheesecorn from Nuts on Clark in the airport. Best cheesecorn on the planet!
36+ pages of backchannel chat today at TechCon08. 14 participant reflections shared via Gabcast. http://handouts.wesfryer…
Boy I am glad not to be driving in this Chicago traffic! Almost to Chicago Midway.
@djakes Thanks Dave. It was good to see you today, albeit briefly. Great session. And thanks for the speakers, they were a lifesaver!
@shupester well it is always good to be overprepared. :-)
Just checked in for my flight from the taxi enroute from Naperville, Illinois and TechCon to Chicago Midway Airport. Today was long but good
Shoot. I forgot to check in online for my Southwest flight back to Oklahoma City this evening. Boarding group C. Oh well.
Now in @cchausis session “How Web 2.0 Tools Impact Learning, and the Capacity to Learn” at TechCon08
from @djakes: look at Thomas Gusky’s book on evaluating professional development
I prepared too many slides today. I got through 83 of 123. That is fine, I didn’t need to share them all. I overprepared.
