SO excited about these upcoming conferences!! even hopefully hooking up with some of my SL educator friends moving SL into the RL with the 2.0 kinda stuff i've been doing in SL.

other tech guru crushes:

i have no resistance to what Kathy Shrock tells me....i've been a devoted acolyte of hers since 97 she's the Aerosmith to my Wayne's World. "i'm not worthy!"

other tech guru crushes:
Joyce Valenza the founder of this Ning...she's SO super cool - she both inspires and exhausts does she DO all she does!? i go to ALL her presentations and i leave with all kinds of enthusiasm and ideas....but she also makes me feel like a slacker, i could do MORE! LOL
Will Richardson.... i'd gladly stalk him! [swoons] ....oh wait, i already do! ...going to any and all presentations he gives, sitting in the front row and filming him on my flip!! heh heh
Jeff Hastings is a rockin LMS and my gadget guru and gave me permission to spread the gadget love around my state

Aaron Smith...[grins] a super talented MD collegue and art teacher..don't worry, you're local...i won't stalk you, where's the challenge? but still, you do cool stuff man!
