This year the National Education Computing Conference (NECC) is in San Antonio.  For me it's both a little work and vacation as I've never been to San Antonio before.  If you can ignore the heat and humidity, along with thunderstorms expected any time now, it's a beautiful town.  

We've walked to the Alamo, the Riverwalk, Mission San Fernando and already been to events at the Convention Center.  Yesterday afternoon in front of the Alamo there was a bull riding event.  Interesting being close up to a real Brahma bull.

NECC 2008 is right around the corner and I must say, I'm pretty excited about it! I'll be doing two sessions,  My Space, Your Space: Effective Social Networking Using Open Source on Monday, 6/30/2008, 2:00pm–3:00pm in HGCC 217 A, and Social Networking in Education on Tuesday, 7/1/2008, 2:00pm–3:00pm in HGCC 217 A. I'm looking forward to meeting up with educators from around the world to share and discuss technology in education.

There has been a great deal of interest in Elgg, which is the social networking platform that we used to create this site and the SUSD Student Community, and there are a lot of other schools and organizations using it. To help us all "group up", I have created this group on the NECC Ning site. If you are interested in Elgg, or educational social networking in general, please join us on the NECC Ning! I'd love to get a great discussion group going, and maybe coordinate a meetup or two with those of you who will be at NECC next week.

See you in San Antonio!
