I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.
I am just getting back after a vacation and attending the ALA conference. I stayed with family in Arlington and took the Orange line to the convention center everyday. Met lots of people. I thought the vendors was one of the best I've ever attended.
I'm sorry I do not know him. Nevada is such a large state that I don't get to Las Vegas very often. We're even in a different climate zone--something I'm so thankful for this time of year because it's much hotter in Las Vegas than it is here in the north. Have a great day!
Hi Julia, Thanks for your note. The silly pineapple picture is at the "Big Pineapple" in Queensland, Australia. It was a fn trip! You asked about my work - I used to work in a college library and left to start a consulting business. I've been doing technology training and consulting for over 10 years now. Right now I'm teaching lots of classes on 2.o stuff and also web development classes. Plus lots of other web development projects. Lots of fun and sometimes way to busy. Glad you joined this network - sounds like you're having fun working with all this new stuff!
I am so impressed with all you have done to participate in social networking. It is really a major mind shift. I am a fan of "Who Moved My Cheese" and am interested in hearing a real-life impact it made. Retirement does take more than financial planning and few of us realize it until we are in it. I think SN's will make it easier for people to maintain connections after working for pay has ended.
