So this could be the largest gathering of “edubloggers” in one place in the history of…um…the last few months at least. (See the simulation photo at right.) We’re at 90 attendees and counting, and as someone famous once said, “that’s a lot of buttons.” (Steve‘s in charge of buttons, btw.) If you haven’t got your name on the list for EduBloggerCon in Atlanta yet, get on over to the official wiki and sign yourself up. (There’s also a page for “wannaattendees” to sign up to watch from afar. Like they have better things to do…) The important news is that David and my wife’s grandmother’s best friend Miss Francis from Hogansville (sorry, no Google Maps Street View yet) will be in charge of the “Down Home EduBloggerLunch” featuring all sorts of game and the finest grits. Really looking forward to that. (What’s that Dave? No one told you?) I’ll bring the sweet tea. Decaf.
Anyway, really hoping everyone can make it. The whole unconference thing seems to be working pretty well so far, at least for those of us whose desktops are cluttered with icons that came from god knows where. For you organizational types, pack the Alka Seltzer. There is an “organizing” page on the wiki that hasn’t had any love in about a month, but the “sessions” page has been wiki-ing right along and is the place you can make your own presence felt before the event. And yes, most are sessions 2.0.
In all seriousness…I’m gettin’ there early. Hope to see you.
