Just a few days until I leave (Monday), heading northwest to beautiful Vancouver for the MERLOT 2003 conference.

In addition to putting on a poster (and a completely unposter-like poster at that!) on the Maricopa Learning eXchange (MLX), I am teaming up with compadres Brian Lamb and D’Arcy Norman for a session covering our work on RSS and Learning Objects.

We were impressed that the conference organizers knew how important this was to put it in the last presentation slot of the conference, and they have assured us that no one ever leaves conferences early.

They also enticed us with some beach front property in Barstow.

Do not look for any previews or sneak peeks for the presentations, but we have some shifty things up our sleeves. It is possible that Lora or Boris might show up, but you know how faculty like being away on their summer vacations.

I’ve even surprised myself in being willing to cobble together a presention in gasp PowerPoint (There is a reason for this, of sorts), something I never do. I barely even know how to use it, but at least I have killed the freaking paper clip.

The presentation will appear after the show on August 8.

On to Van Rock City.
