Reinvigorated

It's funny how these professional trips exhaust me, and yet I come back feeling inspired about my work. The purpose of this trip was to begin my work as a NITLE Technology Fellow. It was great to meet the other fellows, all of whom seem incredibly cool and smart. I was describing some of our conversations to Mr. Geeky and he noted that it seemed like kind of a geeky crowd. And I said, yeah, it was so cool. It was great just to share ideas with everyone. I got so many great tidbits, from new podcasts to listen to to new ways to shape workshops. We did have to suffer through the painful process of having ourselves videotaped while teaching and then watch and critique it. Ouch. I hope that video never sees the light of day.

I'll leave you with a horrible video of a show that I used to watch as a kid. It might explain some things about me. I shared this with the tech fellows. It was a good way to start the morning.
