Now that I know I'm going to have the pleasure of doing a Google 3 hour precon at FETC, working along side Dean Shareski...it is on to learning more about his work. I have heard of him many times, always in a good way and I respect him and his work ethic. (Seems he does alot for one educator!)
Now, I'm on the hunt to learn more about him and his work so I can grow and of course be further motivated in my educational technology endeavors. I can't think of anything more worthwhile than to learn from others..and I try to use THAT philosophy every day!
We've already started getting acquainted through Twitter...a great way to collaborate!

So far, I've been lucky, no one has stolen my identity. I've heard horror stories and they are still continuing for some of my friends. Lately, on twitter,( this is not documented yet), but a friend of mine at work asked me if I had jumped on this site and yes, gave my twitter name and password.
I KNOW better, but since it was suggested by a trusted friend, I trusted the site.. whoops, my first mistake.
I changed my password after this conversation and now I'm throwing this out to cyberspace..we should have more conversations about changing your passwords...we should each set time up during the year to actually do this task instead of waiting for an incident to happen. So I propose we change passwords quarterly...everyone should take time out of their busy lives to change their passwords...before their luck runs out....

It only took me 30 minutes to vote (rumor has it some Missourians took over 5 hours!!) and as I jumped from channel to channel, it was on the DAILY SHOW with Jon Stewart that I found out the man I voted for had won. At first, I thought he was joking, but my laptop was zoned in to CNN and yep, it truly was HISTORY...
For the first time, in a long time, I'm excited about the next 4-8 years. Yes, it's not going to all be flowers and fun, but I'm thinking we can find our way out of the toilet....
75 more days before there are NO MORE BUSHES in DC!!!!
