What an amazing first session with Cheryl, Susan and Jeff. I don't think I've ever had so many windows open at once and the chatroom was just humming!  So many awesome connections made today. 

I hope I've uploaded my introduction correctly!

Meeting up

Webcast Academy - Wed, 2007-07-25 11:34



I really feel like the kid whose peers left school two years ago, everything has changed, the computer room is where the bathroom used to be and no code words work any more.

 I'm very interested in the present course, though I'll probably miss all the European-unfriendly meetings after midnight our time since I live in time zone GMT + 2.

I've been a registered member of WA for about two years.


I hope to meet up with you somewhere.

In putting my portfolio together I went back and found some shows I liked.

 The first show was week 3 , you can listen here, http://www.webcastacademy.net/files/wow203.mp3 

I like this show because, it was a show where I was in Wells, ME, and Sharon Peters, Vicki Davis and Jen Wagner were all in Atlanta at the Georgia State Conference.
