Ok, so no rain, but you found some good coffee, right?

Jan Borelli

I have to tell you that the experiences with Steve and Glenn were just outstanding. We went out to lunch today and began to talk about our growth with blogging. Glenn mentioned something about an online training event which I will look into. If you are not wiki-ing and flickering then you need to look into it. Glen totally mentored Steve and me.

P.S. What is it about Seattle and coffee? Don't dare give directions by way of Starbuck's because they are on every street. Seattle is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I hope Glenn will post on why email is obsolete... it was exhilarating to meet with him and our other bloggers at The Cheesecake Factory. There's so much to process that I don't even know where to start. But, we all agreed that Leadertalk.org is a very important part to our professsional development.

Great coffee and good times with fellow bloggers and fellow principals! Next year it will be in Nashville so join us!

Glenn E. Malone

It was great to meet Steve Poling, Jan Borelli, Arturo Gonzalez, and Jocelyn McCabe at NAESP's first ever and "hippest" EduBloggerCon meet-up.

I encourage others that write and read blogs to use the EduBloggerCon format to connect face-to-face with your blogging colleagues at your next conference. I also encourage you to use the HitchHikr tool that David Warlick created to follow the web postings at your next conference.

For more info on the web 2.0 tools that Jan mentioned in her comment, here's a link to the resources I'm using and experimenting with as an elementary principal.


Here's the link that Jan referred to as the best online conference that I've ever attended. It's free, virtual and always available. The K12 Online Conference:


Finally, here's another look at what Steve Ruble at MicroPersuasion.Com says about email,

"It had to happen sooner or later, but teens largely see email as old school. According to the Associated Press, it's a "a good way to reach an elder – a parent, teacher or a boss – or to receive an attached file." Email is largely being replaced by instant messaging, blogs and social networking sites. I must be getting older because my email load is growing, not shrinking. I gotta start spending more time with teens."
