Share your work at NECC unplugged if your proposal was rejected. Edubloggercon is on Saturday also -- so, share away! The only person who can keep you from sharing is your own self!

I love Melanie's photos and sharing of her time at NECC! The blogosphere as a whole is really a very welcoming bunch.

I think that Elaine's viewpoints on edubloggercon are excellent ones and I think it is worth reading her thoughts and hear her side as she was with Pearson and the film crew. I keep thinking that as long as I've been in the edublogosphere I've heard people say that "we don't have the right people in the room." We finally get a company listening and then people don't want them in the room. Of course, it could have been filmed a little better but it was their first edubloggercon -- we can all live and learn and grow together. The edublogosphere is growing and we're going to have to learn how to deal with that.

I enjoyed reading Elaine Robert's views on NECC. Elaine works with Pearson and is working her way into all of the emerging Web 2.0 trends with a thoroughness of a researcher. I've been very impressed with her. Elaine says:

"While at NECC I learned there is an interesting bifurcation of attitudes, but that's true in any industry or any technology or trend. There are the early adopters who think they are the experts and that everyone should go to them for advice, information, whatever. Then there are early adopters who invite everyone into the pool, but also invite the newbies to explore on their own. This latter group of early adopters, the non-divas, are the mentors and encouragers. They are the folks who know they don't have all of the answers and are eager to have others come on board to explore their brave new worlds."

Wow! I aspire to be the latter.

For those of you who don't twitter but would like to follow what twitterers are saying about NECC -- this is one of the hashtags that may be used. To make this work for you, you must be following @hashtags and then use #necc in your title -- I like it sans date, but am finding some people using #necc08 and #necc2008. I'll probably use #necc to save tweetspace.

Just started the discussion for the viral pd session at NECC over at the NECC 2008 Ning -- watching some interesting discussions take place -- join in and converse. If you have a session, you're asked to create a discussion -- I hope they'll show us our tags so that we can tag and find sessions easily.
