Out of office

I sent information to two professional association mailing lists today. This is a small fraction of what I received in return:

Ya know what?

I don't care.

I propose we outlaw the automatic response feature of email systems that simply excuse people for not checking their damn e-mail.

 I feel better now. Thanks for letting me get this off my chest.

A belated atta boy to Miguel

Just a public compliment to Miguel Guhlin from the San Antonio schools for his thoughtful presentation at the ISTE Bandstand in Second Life Tuesday evening. As you can tell from the good-sized group above, Miguel has quite a following.

I personally seemed to be experiencing technical difficulties that evening - low sound volume, inability to sit in a chair, spastic camera control (hence the giant blue head in the picture above), etc. I was at the entire event but caught about half of it. Darn!

Anyway, kudos to Miguel and all who take a chance working in new learning environments. HIs PPT slides for the preso are here.

Miguel next time, I expect you to have Leslie Conery's ginormous gesturing hands like she was using at the end keynote of NECC. That was pretty weird. Cool. But weird.
