I live at the Funny Farm.
Just finished up my part in the Northwest Council for Computers in Education conference in Seattle. First time here. Good time. Met some new people, made some new connections, learned a bunch from exhibitors on the trade show floor.
Conducted a workshop (3 hours) on SketchUp software, also gave a presentation. Ended up putting in a good word for Google Earth and a bunch of other Google offerings. Also enjoyed the interaction with/feedback from participants. There was fair amount of presentations on various uses of Google tools to enhance education. Not only is the stuff free, but it is good.
Spent a fair amount of time looking at and talking with presentation hardware folks on the trade floor - projectors, smart boards, wacom type units. As much as I am into the web, still nothing like the atmosphere of a live demonstration or interactive session. Could see a lot of the tools being used in other arenas (planning, community organizing, ecological work). For both better communication, and collecting feedback.
For what it is worth, my first time at the Washington State Convention Center - liked it alot.
Make it a good day.
