Thank You, Jane Wilde!

you as you know are largely responsible for our astonishing success. I hesitate to say that when we have another day (or, pleasantly, it feels like a half day) of sharing and learning, but I feel pretty confident we're onto a model that works. Maybe we can collaborate on a good long article L&L will pick up, or for some other venue. Extending the sharing of the sharing.

Today I'm out early at 8:30 for the panel discussion "Distance Learning Comes of Age" and I'll be sitting on the panel sharing our success very briefly as well as sharing some details of our successful distance event coordination. What's the name and venue for your paper in Toronto? I'd love to share that as well.
We'll debrief after your rousingly successful paper presentation. If you ever, and I mean EVER, need any help from me just hear that old "You've Got a Friend" song in your head and pick up your cellphone and just call on me.

Invitation to Participate and to Learn!

I'll be off out to Boston July 21 by myself for the Apple Learning Institute, and I'm sure that by then I'll have a great deal more to share.

To put things in perspective, we have put together 35 live presentations over 3 days, mo…

Imogen Heap Sings with Miranda!

Okay, okay, it's the other way around, still...

I only wish we had audio that reflected the true warmth and fullness of the sound in the Ryman Auditorium that night, but here is the online video from Imogen Heap's amazing performance of her "Earth," backed up by the ad hoc (organized by my very own baby girl, Miranda Merrick--the beautiful one in the peach dress) "We Are Nashville." Visit Imogen's Charity downloads site soon to download the wonderful improvisation she did with a fresh mandolin purchased just that day from George Gruhn's shop. It looked from where I was sitting like an ancient Gibson A-model. Anyway, she should have the download available from her Nashville show within a few days. Meanwhile, enjoy:
