Today I signed up for a free account at YouTube. It's a video hosting site. In just a few minutes I had my video uploaded. Want to see it?

As part of my upcoming new life, I have been throwing out an amazing about of stuff..including about 100 floppy disks a week! I stopped at this one labeled Midge and much to my surprise it's me in the old Mac lab (actually the 2nd lab since the first was was Mac SE's) and this was the location of the Apple II lab at the now defunct SouthCoast Tech Center in Somerset, MA.
The Properties of this photo say 1995!

Midge will share her ideas about online professional development from both sides of the monitor. After twenty years providing face-to-face workshops for teachers, she enrolled in a completely online Master’s program and will share tips on how to be a successful online student. Online learning requires a change of attitude for many teachers who lead busy personal lives, are tired after a long day at school and can’t stand to sit through long boring lectures in a classroom. Dress is casual; bathrobes preferred for this not too tiring look at today's online learning experience.
It's from 11 to 12 noon today!
Later... (at 1PM)
I think it went well. Will was at Alan November's conference but he made it despite a problem with the wireless connection at this end. At times, we had between 40 and 50 people in our room. I am taking advantage of some of the other interesting sessions at Tappedin's festival.
I made a new friend, too! Jennifer Rosenberry, educational coordinator for school programs at the Civil War Preservation Trust and I chatted about preserving the battlefields. Evidently, developers want to buy the land where these battles took place.
Since I am sharing my 2nd great grandfather, James A. Barber, a Medal of Honor Winner with the world, I think this effort of preserving history is important.

My friend Ragen sent me this pix of Kathy at the Ending Keynote at NECC.
Check out Derrall Garrison's pix of the cell phone salute Kathy had attendees do. Very Cool. Thanks Derrall!
