Orange 2011 – From Afar

imageSo, what do you get when you add free tickets to Orange and free lodging plus no time to take off from work?  You get a very disappointed accountant. Smile Up until this last weekend, I was still trying to figure out how I could swing it and make it to Orange.  Alas, it did not work out for me.

I am glad to see that several of our writers are attending the big event including:

  • Barbara Graves
  • Wendy Douglas; and
  • Jared Massey

I hope that, even with the busy schedule, they will find some time to share what there learning with the community here on Kidmin1124.  I happen to know that some of them are signed up for breakout sections dealing with volunteer issues.

I was reading a great post on Henry Zonio’s blog today called How to Be a Conference Stalker: Orange11 Edition . It got me thinking, and I decided to put everything together in one central location here at Kidmin1124!

All you have to do is




to find all the latest blogs and tweets about Orange 2011 all in one place. I wish I could be there catching up with old friends, meeting some online friends for the first time, and making new friends.  Short of that though, this page will help me to live vicariously and still learn from this amazing conference.
