One month to go! #alaac14
Okay, let's try this again - I just deleted the first post, so now I have to rewrite the whole darn thing - how do I manage to do these things? It is a mystery. The Google Hangout last night went well, if not a little disorganized on my part, and I definitely learned what NOT to do with hangouts, like try to pause the broadcast, which essentially ended the scheduled one I had been advertising for about a week. So I had to create another hangout on the fly, got the time wrong, and started later than intended. I'm sure I lost a lot of potential views because of that, but all I can do is try again with another hangout. I think what I will do is synthesize the information that folks generously gave during this last one and then present the information at the next one. Or I'll just post it on the blog.
Hey, and a big shout-out to those who attended and generously supplied their time and expertise to the topic of attending a huge conference like #alaac14. I am truly appreciative of the people involved in building community online and in person, and it encourages me to keep on keeping on.
Will have to post on some of the activities outside of the scheduled events.
