It may just have been a slight tremor, but I think some real gains were made in the educator Blogger cause earlier this month at BloggerCon. I wish I could find the audio of Pat‘s impassioned and articulate assessment of the needs and dreams of this community. I think quite a few in attendance took note. Witness the coming together of what once was a pretty much left-for-dead eBNvention that is getting ressurected next month in San Francisco. Dave Winer has pledged to attend, either Mena or Ben Trott are expected, Erin Clerico and Bryan Bell will be workshopping, social events are being planned and who knows what else. I’m really hoping we can have a mini edBloggerCon, since I found the Boston event so stimulating. But as Pat says, hopefully this will be the first of many such gatherings around the country. It’s November 21 and 22, around NCTE, so start making plans if you haven’t already.
