Things you can hear "on the street"
Much of what is posted to this blog is, rightfully so, information on presenters and their tools and projects. There is another side to all conferences, the people side; the interactions and stories that help us get to know each other. In that vein, just a couple of quick notes:
From Sunday night: Sitting near the atrium, surrounded by young kids, in town for the weekend for a dance competition. One of them told us they didn't think they'd be going home for days, because of the snow. Luke told her that she should probably know that the hotel was about to be filled with several thousand teachers. She went running across the room shouting to her friends: "We have to get out here!!"
From Tuesday Morning: Dennis Durbin is one of the security guards who is watching our stuff overnights. You might say he has a special interest in this particular job. Mr. Durbin is a retired teacher from Richland. Three years ago he presented at the ICE conference.
