Palm Springs: CUE 08

The first full day of the 2008 CUE conference is over, I felt like I was running around most of the day, since I was. The opening keynote from Vint Cerf was very well received by a crowd who for the most part weren't as 'star struck' as I was from being able to hear Vint speak. This is even after I have introduced myself to him at a Google event. For those of you who don't know what I am talking about, Vint Cerf is probably considered one of the 'Fathers of the Internet.' It is his work on the TCP/IP model that has allowed the Internet, as we know it, to work as well as it does.

During the keynote, Mike Lawrence announced that one of the spotlight speakers, Dr. Chris Dede was having to cancel due to transportation issues. I had offered to Mike several weeks ago that I would be happy to step in if he had any cancellations, since I had two presentations that I had prepared earlier ready to go. So, in the spur of the moment, I was speaking twice today after my short session at the Google Booth yesterday.

The two sessions, World Wide Literacy and Guerrilla Learning are available on my Guerrilla Learning wiki and I would like to get any feed back that people would want to share. I am also embedding the Google presentation for the "Guerrilla Learning" session below.
