An Amazing Feat of Collaborative Web

Speaking of Hitchhikr, there exists two listings on the main page of conferences that have been registered to date.  The first listing includes only conferences that will happen in the next 30 days (colored red), current conferences (colored blue),  and conferences that have happened in the last 30 days (colored gray).  Beneath that box is a listing of all of the conferences that have been registered to date, sorted by the number of times that the hitchhikr page for that conference has been used.

At the top of that list, the most used hitchhikr pages, is NECC.  No surprised there.  It’s followed by K12Online, ALA, Building Learning Communities, and two Euro conferences, Les Blog 2.0 (France) and EduBlogs06 (Spain).  Following close behind these is CUE 2007 (hh).

What makes this worth noting is that one would think that the top ten conferences would be there because enough time has elapsed to register thousands of uses.  Yet CUE 2007, California’s ed tech conference, happened only a few weeks ago.  In fact, it is the only 2007 conference to appear in the top 18 Hitchhikr conferences. 

Clearly there is a lot of collaborative conversation going on in The Golden State.
