In a Holding Pattern

Let me begin this post by saying, if I haven't gotten back to you regarding an email or a request for contact, I apologize. Life has this funny way of making one busy and not providing enough hours in the day to handle it all. This summer I had planned to complete the writing of a book on building Personal Learning Networks (PLNs), re-vitalize the Ustream show and get the Teacher Tech Academy open for business. 

Unfortunately, those projects took a backseat to my full time gig as a District Technology Coordinator (where we are not only rolling out Active Directory to replace Novell, but also upgrading most machines from XP to Windows 7 in the process.  Not to mention I am working on an exciting project known as PBL4PD (Project Based Learning for Professional Development).  

After hours I continue to work on my Web 2.0 365 project blog, preparing presentations and workshops for IETCFETCICE and hopefully NETA (I have heard great things about this conference),  hopefully successfully completing my Google Certified Trainer application, serving on the volunteer committee for EdCamp Chicago and was recently honored to be invited to join  SET Connections Board with some truly amazing and wonderful educators.

And all that I just mentioned doesn't even begin to touch on my family and social obligations. My big problem is I can't stop having ideas! I really wish I could turn the brain off once in a while.

So, again, if I have not responded to an email, tweet or social network invitation, I apologize. Don't think for a second that I forgot about you.  But just in case, please do be persistent and send me a reminder!
