I'd Rather Be in Atlanta


NECC 2007 is going on as we speak and I would love to be there participating in the discussions, meeting those whose blogs I value as part of my personal learning network. Instead, I'm here in Boston, enjoying the conference from a distance, trying to control my NECC envy.

It has never been easier to be involved remotely, learning from all the bloggers who are documenting their sessions and live blogging. Go to technorati and search for NECC2007, and NECC07 for daily updates and review edubloggercon07 for what happened during the free pre-conference attended by all the movers and shakers in the educational blogging community.

It's so cool that our colleagues are keeping us informed! Thank you to all the bloggers at NECC for sharing your experience with the rest of us. Your efforts are appreciated more than you can realize!!

Hi Karen- I can relate and feel your pain. This is the first NECC I have missed in the last five years.

Karen,
Just watching from a distance as well. I can feel the energy...and have to say this the first NECC conference that I truly regret not attending! Thank Goodness for Web 2.0 and all the edubloggers helping us participate virtually!
