I made it to Atlantic City and things are going great. I met up at the Philadelphia airport with Karine Joly and Mike Richwalsky and we cruised the expressway down to the coast. Last night I met up with Kyle James and Nick Catto and we drove to the beach and checked out the area.
Mark and I gave our 3-hour pre-conference workshop titled ‘Join the Conversation’ this morning, which went well. We streamed some of our presentation, but not the whole thing.. you gotta pay to see that! You can check some of that out on uStream, cue to the 11 minute mark. My Mac was on the podium, so it’s not the greatest view. We hope to stream some more sessions later, at a better vantage point obviously. We just wanted to use the site a bit to show people more about it. There was some twitter backchannel chat from Melissa Cheater, which was always fun to watch evolve while Mark was talking.
Lunch was great. Had a chance to sit down with Billy Adams and Jacob Oyen from Twitter, as well as several others from our session to chat more about higher ed. Even bumped in to Rachel Reuben as I was leaving.
I love conferences, what a great networking opportunity. If you see me around in the lobby, eating, between sessions, or gambling my savings away at the casino, stop me and say hi! I’d love to meet you all.
I started a Flickr group for eduWeb 2008 photos, so please feel free to add yours!
Don’t forget about tonight’s BlogHighEd.org Meetup, located at the Poolside Cafe by… the pool. It’s tonight from 7-9pm. Hope to see you there!
