Just a reminder that the first ever EduCon 2.0 will be happening in Philadelphia at Chris Lehmann‘s Science Leadership Academy in two weeks starting on Friday, January 25th with a tour of the school and the Franklin Institute and running all day Saturday and Sunday with a wide ranging list of conversations. As Chris says:
EduCon 2.0 is both a conversation and a conference. And it is not a technology conference. It is an education conference. It is a School 2.0 conference. It is, hopefully innovation conference where we want to come together, both in person and virtually, to discuss the future of schools. Every session will be an opportunity to discuss and debate ideas — from the very practical to the big dreams.
Last I heard, registrations were nearing a couple of hundred, which means this is going to be an awesome opportunity to wrap our collective brains around some of the most important questions facing us as educators (and to carry those conversations late into the Philadelphia night.) For me, I’m going to get to cross a few more names of my blogging life list, people like Konrad Glogowski and Arthus Erea and I’m sure a few others, to see a lot of good friends who have been on this journey for many years, and to meet and talk to potential new friends and connections in my network.
Really hope to see you there. (Oh…and don’t forget to bring your own refillable water bottles…)

Just in case you were feeling sorry for folks on the West Coast who might not be not be able to attend EduCon 2.0, not to worry…We can travel to San Francisco to join Steve Hargadon and a growing list of presenters and topics – http://www.classroom20wiki.com/SF2008Attending – for the Feb 1 & 2 a Web 2.0 in Education conference.
Looking forward to following the EduCon conversations,
I’m looking forward to it. See you there, Will.

As you prepare for continued conference work:
I heard you may have issues (like many of us) with your macbook pro getting hot. I spoke to my twin brother earlier this week and he turned me on to a wonderful solution!
The twin fans on your MacBook Pro can then be controlled by the temperature monitor and fan speed guage that resides in your top toolbar.
Try it, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how well a boost in fan speed keeps the temperatures manageable.

This sounds like it will be a great conference. I hope that opportunities will be made for many of us to attend virtually via ustream — I’ll be watching twitter to see.
Isn’t there a way to stream from a cell webcam? Now that would be cool. Let us know what will be available if anything.
Have a great conference.
