This is very exciting!  Let us know if you're streaming so we can hop in remotely.  Colleen Macklin is AWESOME.

For professional development I'm reading Brenda Brathwaite's blog this week:
Along with Inside Social Games:  http://insidesocialgames.com

What are you reading, working on or developing??

I'm working on a top secret project this winter with a nonprofit focused on permaculture and organic gardening education, partners in these fields can contact me offlist. Can't wait to show you more in 2011!

Josephine,

Sounds like it should be a great panel!

Let me know if you need help streaming this. I can come down with my gear, we would just need an internet hardline and decent bandwidth.

Til then,
Joyce Bettencourt
