A Week on the Road

I haven’t been very active here lately — with good reason. Thursday, I completed a huge writing project that I will describe later. As though of you who follow me on Twitter know, I’ve been sucking down espressos at Starbucks, and writing, writing, writing, which had me way to focused to enjoy the scattered frame of mind that my brain usually inhabits, and which spawns my blog postings.

One issue has continued to spring up, though, as I continue to get invitations to join this or that social network, and as people have contacted me wanting to show me their new social networking software. It is all very interesting, potentially useful/valuable, and the sort of tool that we need to solve our problems together. But it is all leaving me a bit bewildered. The reason-why is starting to form in my head, but I’ll share that when it has taken some degree of shape.

Today (Sunday), I hit the road again, flying to Colorado Springs to keynote a staff development institute for a large school district. After the keynote, I will hold roundtable discussions with four groups of educators. That should be fun and educational for me.

Then I fly on to Vancouver for the Virtual School Society’s Learning: Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere conference. Ian Jukes will be the opening keynote speaker, and I am looking forward to spending some time with that avalanche of creative energy. My only involvement with the conference will be the closing keynote, so this will be a wonderful opportunity to sit, listen, learn, and maybe blog a bit — and hopefully adapt my keynote to ride respectably behind Ian’s.

So stay tuned!
