NECC 2008 - See you next year!
Dean Shareski's a sharp cookie, Carolyn Foote's my savior, Miguel Guhlin's a beach bum, and Doug Johnson's a curmudgeon. David Jakes is under the bus, Cheryl Oakes likes cobbler, and Jon Becker likes waffles. Sylvia Martinez is a rock star, and Jeff Utecht is ... hey, where's Jeff? Darren Draper's on the A list and I proudly hung with some guys on the D list. I tell you, NECC 2008 was smokin' hot!
A shout out to ALL my new Edubloggercon / NECC Unplugged / Blogger's Cafe / San Antone peeps! Pry those iPhones from the Tweetin' fingers of Wes Fryer and Chris Lehmann. Surgically remove the webcams from Lisa Parisi and Steve Dembo. Tell Konrad Glogowski to quit his TV repair business. Y'all get some rest 'cause next year we'll be in my hometown, the nation's capital er, capitol um, das kapital oh, you know, that place where I'm Just A Bill was filmed.\n
Remember the Alamo! (if you can after all those prickly pear margaritas)\n
