This post is purely for the novelty of doing a wireless post from McCarran airport in Vegas. I’m on my way home today (finally…heavy sigh). The conference went as well as can be expected. The Department of Education really does do a nice job of organizing conferences. This one had 2,700+ attendees from all over the place. As far as I could tell, most of the sessions went off without a hitch. Some of the presenters could use a little coaching on doing presentations, and nearly all the PowerPoints had low information density. Some slides were next to useless with poor graphics that didn’t display well either on the page or on the screen. Those were the exception, though. I thought it was a worthwhile conference. One nice thing they do is post all the presentations on their website for easy downloading. Very nice for folks back in the office who weren’t able to attend.
Can’t wait to get home and give the family a big hug…been away too long.
