I don’t know about you specifically, but my twitter & Facebook give me the impression that my kid’s school is not the only one struggling with the “how do we make up all of these snow days” question.
(I realize that some people are still accumulating the snow days and might not have moved on to that question, and to those people I can only say – I hope it ends soon)
Anyway, as you know from this space, we had a conference here get nailed by a freak weather event and the conference organizers have also been dealing with the question of how to move forward. They are awesome and there’s a plan and it is happening —
All week, they’ll be posting online versions of the conference talks on the Online Northwest Blog. Ours isn’t up yet, but it should be — we sent in our stuff. And then this Friday, from noon-1pm the keynote speaker, Andromeda Yelton, will broadcast her presentation live and participate in a Q & A.
(ETA – our stuff is up there now)
This is a pretty great solution, and an opportunity for more people to check out Online Northwest. For those who have been reading this blog for a while, you’ll know this as a conference I regularly attend and regularly call one of my favorites. So this is also a chance to find out why.

I’m super-psyched that I get to deliver the talk anyway :) It’s too bad I don’t get to see anyone’s faces while I do it – that’s a whole different mode of keynote delivery – but better than nothing.
I hear that – I always feel weirdly unsettled when I’m done with an online talk. Hopefully the Q&A period will give you a chance to get some of that interaction experience. Thanks so much for making it happen!
