WAC – The Big Day


It’s finally arrived, the day of my session from way back when.  I had to butcher my paper down to almost nothing in the interest of time, as we’re overbooked, but it should be okay.  I’ll be busy enough trying to keep things running smoothly.


I also have another presentation on the same day in a different session, so I’ll be a busy girl.  After this I will be able to enjoy the conference a bit more.  I’ve already met one of my fellow bloggers, Kenny Atchison, and was very happy to see another person with whom I’d only interacted digitally in the flesh.

On a terribly sad note, one of my session participants will not be joining us.  He was posted in South Africa, but had family in Zimbabwe, some of whom had become victims of political violence.  My thoughts go out to him and his family.  Words don’t really do the situation justice.
