NMC Summer Conference

Holy cow I can’t believe it’s been this long since I posted!

Trying to get caught up, and in the meantime, here are some pics from the NMC Summer Conference 2007 in Indianapolis:

Fleep, JoannaTrail Blazer, and Intellagirl, taken at the reception at the Eiteljorg Museum, wherein Fleep had at least one too many glasses of wine:

Fleep, CDB Barkley, and JoannaTrail Blazer, also at the museum reception, also too much wine:

Fleep attending an excellent session by Angela Thomas from Sydney, Australia. I’ll have her book Youth Online: Identity & Literacy in the Digital Age at the top of my reading list when it comes out. Oh yeah, that’s Larry Johnson behind me, the CEO of the New Media Consortium, and he is as fantastic in person as he is in SL (Larry Pixel) – I was VERY impressed with all of the NMC staff:

Angela also talked about future research she plans to do with the “Silver Surfer” generation of older adults who are exploring digital media tools, and showed this fantastic video about the the Zimmers Band project:

Me on the right in pink, drawing cards for winning a prize at the opening reception:

Funny story, there is a guy named Chris Collins from U of Akron, who I met maybe three years ago at an ODCE conference when they got us mixed up. We haven’t seen or talked to each other since, but he was at the conference in Indy and when they drew names for a prize, they called Chris Collins and we both came up. It was like OH HEY I KNOW YOU and we had some good laughs:

That’s it for now, off to unpack and get some laundry done before I tackle the email inbox.

Birthdays and Chicken Pox

We had a family reunion today in Connersville for the James family. I’ll try to get those pictures posted soon, as well as a few old family photos from Momo, but in the meantime, I give you pictures from my past.

I’d never seen my birth picture before, so it was pretty cool when my grandma pulled this out:

And then a picture of me with chicken pox, I think I was about 12:

Little Layla

Mother, Mary, and I went up to Zanesville yesterday to visit Emily and Layla, who turned 1 week old yesterday. I only have a few pics right now, more to come when Mary brings back the camera with the big memory card. Click the “2006 Layla Week 1” link on the right for the set!

Birthday Dress

I told mother I’d put up these pictures of my pretty blue birthday dress. Obviously my hair will be fixed when I actually wear it out. =)

Better late than never..

With many apologies to Brigett and Rodney, I didn’t realize I never got these pics up from last October! These are the pics from Rodney’s Going Away Party on October 30, 2005. (Thanks Brigett for reminding me!) Also, somehow a couple of shots from my house got in there, sorry about that.
