Second Life NECC Birds of a Feather Session!

It's official, in addition to presenting a workshop session on podcasting with Windows tools, I'll be moderating a "Birds of a Feather" session called "Virtual Worlds and Second Life" at the National Educational Computing Conference, NECC, held annually by the International Society for Technology in Education, ISTE--this year June 24-27 in Atlanta, Georgia.

"Birds" sessions are not workshops, and they're not presentations. They are a forum for individuals of like interests to gather and meet, and they can be very valuable for personal and professional networking.

Tennessee Women's All-State Honor Choir

Hey, my lovely daughter Miranda was selected to work with and perform with this year's TN All-State Honor Choir and we went down to the fabulous Schermerhorn Symphony Center yesterday morning to hear those amazing talents perform. The songs they learned in two days of hard work and then performed incredibly solidly can be found here. I've got a little 2-something minute snippet of sound here for you to get a notion of how stellar that performance was (just a sample from my camera--don't want to get in trouble with the copyright police!), and you can order the CD and/or DVD recordings of the event if you'd like one--it was as professional a performance as I've ever seen, and all from high school students... All in the public service of course. No bragging intended :).

Eidam's Spring Fling 2007

A lovely day out at the Blue Moon Farm B&B, at the invitation of its owners and proprieters, the Eidams, for their annual get-together of their three children's classmates. The party was perhaps bigger than in previous years, and the weather was perfect. I couldn't help but take some texture pics--maybe they'll make nice desktop wallpapers. Such a beautiful place; such a wonderful day.
