I’m still thinking and writing about ALA (more posts coming soon. Ish.), but am now in Denver at ISTE for the second leg of this whirlwind conference tour of mine. Got into Denver late last night and was immediately overwhelmed this morning upon walking into the Convention Center. ALA was, I thought, huge, but it was child’s play compared to this. So many people, and the Exhibits Hall is total sensory overload.
I’ve only made it to one formal session so far—a very cool workshop on National Geographic’s new map tools. Very cool, very user friendly way to look at multiple layers of geographic data. I can’t wait to play with it some more. There’s also a very techie “poster session” area which is absolutely littered with portable interactive whiteboards. There have to be hundreds of the things in this building. I doubt anyone would notice if I just took one. . .
