I might just sit in the edublogger cafe tomorrow as some of the conversations there and other places have been outstanding. I've had a chance to reconnect with Will Richardson, Steve Hargadon, Jeff Utecht, David Warlick, Mark Wagner, Hall Davidson, Guy Ballard, Joe Brennan and Terry Freedman. I've also had a chance to meet many others, including Chris Craft, Vinnie Vrotney, Brian Crosby, Chris Sessums, Doug Johnson (great presenter by the way), Anne Davis, Cheryl Oakes and Janice Sterns.

The most interesting connection for me has been Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach, who I connected with instantly, and look forward to working with immensly.

    Choosing at NECC seems to be a common problem! I see that you wanted to go to the del.icio.us session this morning. I was there and it was wonderful. Lucie, the tech coordinator who ran the session, was engaging and presented many creative uses of del.icio.us for research -- with her focus being on the social aspects. Check out my blog summary: http://mgolding.wordpress.com/2007/06/26/redesign-research-with-social-bookmarking/.

    I miss you all. It was great to see real people and have f2f conversations. However, I will look forward to virtual conversations until the next time.
