I landed today in Falls Church, VA, at the invite of George Brett, a long time internet colleague who I finally met for the first time in February at the EDUCAUSE ELI conference. He urged me to visit him, so I did– I am. He and his wife and daughter offered me the same open warm hospitality I have gotten everywhere on the trip.

After a fabulous pork medallion dinner, I got to show off the StoryBox but the real prize was having George do his first ds106 radio show.

He had fun with his old time music he played via his iPad:

He was part of the internet scene going back to the early 1980s, and was around many of the early wizards — as he quipped:

It was a great conversation of past, present, and future technology, but I must admit being a bit tired to summarize, so here is the archive.

An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at CogDogBlog.com on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.
