Well, I’m sitting again.  This time on the flight back to Atlanta.  There were more sales pitches this morning, then they hustled us out the door with lunch in a bag to head to the airport. Seems like everything is delayed into and out of Atlanta.  Ginger and I were able to get booked onto … Continue reading

I’m at 30,000 feet somewhere over Alabama, on my way to Houston, Texas.  Hewlett-Packard is sending me and Ginger Waters to a conference at their expense.  It’s a shame they couldn’t back this up a couple of days and included a couple of tickets to a football game cum strip show.  At least we’re staying … Continue reading

A surprisingly good breakfast for a Hampton Inn, and then we were off.  We stopped by a garden googah place just outside of Georgetown, and found a wonderful selection of yard art.  We just couldn’t leave without a concrete heron.  Go figure. We headed inland from Georgetown toward Sumter, across some of the most desolate … Continue reading

I’ve already expressed my opinions on MB, but Laura’s experience was … Continue reading Myrtle Beach!?!?!?!??!

How about that – a geek at a Greek restaurant. Last night we went to the CSI bash at House of Blues. I actually … Continue reading Edtech 2003 2

Edtech-2003

Once again, I’m sitting in the restaurant, acting like a geek. I’m also noticing that my Palm batteries are getting lower and I didn’t bring a charger. I’m just hoping it holds out until tomorrow. Last night I stood up a free dinner with a vendor, Trillion, to eat with my tech team. Most of … Continue reading Edtech-2003

OK, I’ve just identified myself as a geek. I’ve opened up my keyboard to update this blog in a pancake house in Myrtle Beach. September just disappeared on me. It marked the start of Furman football games, cooler temperatures, awful new TV shows, and a deluge of leaves. We still haven’t gotten everything thing cleaned … Continue reading Edtech 2003 3
