Scott threw a suggestion onto Twitter this morning that has been percolating for a few hours.
It just hit me. CANHEIT is here at UCalgary in June. I can arrange meeting space here on campus. If anyone's interested in a face-to-face Eduglu/Social:Learn/Web 2.0 in higher ed meetup, how does The University of Calgary in June 2008 sound? Maybe Thursday June 19th? Something during the conference proper? The week before or after? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
Update: After some gentle prodding from Scott, I realize that an incrementalist approach, which is what a CANHEIT session would be, is not sufficient. We need to kick out the jams in ways that wouldn't be possible in the context of CANHEIT - even if the session was before or after the conference, it would be coloured by Commercial Enterprise IT agenda. Wrong.
I'm withdrawing my offer to host a CANHEIT session, in favour of a standalone event wherever - it could still be at UCalgary if that works out, but it sounds like things would be much more radical and powerful if we were able to impose on Brian's hospitality at UBC:OLT.
