My travel for the 2007 Open Education conference in Logan, Utah was approved. I've never been to Open Education, but it sounds like an amazing event. And, to top it off, I get to present with Jim, hang out with Brian and Scott, and meet David in person.
I still need to figure out the logistics - there aren't any direct flights from Calgary to Logan, so I guess I'll fly to Salt Lake City and hitchhike the rest of the way.
Unfortunately, I need to leave on the last day of the conference because of family obligations. I'm hoping I can find a flight that means I won't miss much of the conference.
Of course, this means that I need to buckle down and do some actual writing and work on the material and presentation...
I was given the choice between 2007 Open Content and EDUCAUSE in Seattle. It was a hard choice. Maybe I'll go to EDUCAUSE 2008? I've never been to one of those, either.
