Senseless First Thought Drivel

Nope, I’m not the type who can do realtime, streaming commentary during conferences I’m attending, complete with fishbowl quality cell phone pictures of tiny people behind podiums…

I will note that the Blackboard World conference has exceeded expectations, and I feel surprisingly happy to be surrounded by higher ed colleagues again. In any session, there’s about 2/3rds higher ed and 1/3rd K-12. Many of the higher ed presenters are dead serious about their work, and overall the entire conference has a reassuring “yeah, we’re doing it” esprit de corps. I wish every conference I went to had this atmosphere.

I’ll post second thoughts about the conference later this week or next week. I’ll also post some cycling pictures. I did bring my Bike Friday, and I had two excellent rides around San Diego Bay to Coronado, and then a ferry ride back to downtown proper. Ah, I feel refreshed.

I should also note that our tech team retreat to Rockaway Beach, Oregon was a lot of fun. We had several serious discussions about K-12 Computer Science, Second Life, Online Communities and other issues. I’ll post some notes about these meetings as well.
