I'm envious of my friend Claudie (@thespreadingoak), covetous of her recent trip out west for BC TEAL's conference and anniversary carnival. I've followed some of the weekend's Twitter activity.
Sounds like I missed juicy stuff. Were most workshops recorded? Any chance I can read someone's notes or watch a webcast?
One of the workshops I would like to have attended is "PBLA: Boon or Bane?"
Claudie tells me that she encouraged some folks this weekend to look up this blog. If you're here for the first time, welcome!
