Computers and Writing 2008, Athens, GA
I arrived in Athens, GA last night, getting to the hotel about 9 pm.
Happily, despite some heavy traffic made slower by some intermittent hard rain, the ride from the airport to Athens passed quickly because I had good company: Carole Clark Papper and Lynda Haas.
We met up at Budget counter -- me coming from Boston, Carole from Long Island, and Lynda from the LA area.
The conference --http://www.cw2008.uga.edu/cw_pages/index.htm-- begins Thursday with workshops during the day followed by an opening reception, but Bedford/St. Martin's is hosting an e-portfolio summit.
The idea of the summit is simply: we just wanted to get a lot of smart people in a room to discuss what they see happening with e-portfolios. We gathered an eclectic group, from novices to experts, and we invited some people who might have contrary views on some issues.
It'll be a good, robust, no consensus-forming discussion. Followed by a nice dinner.
That's this afternoon.
