Going North

Technology in the Arts bloggers David Dombrosky, Brad Stephenson, and I are packing up to go to our sister conference, Technology in the Arts:  Canada, hosted by the Centre for Cultural Management at the University of Waterloo in Ontario.  We're flying out tomorrow for the Friday-Saturday conference. I'll be giving a presentation on navigating the murky waters of CMS selection in a session called Content Management Systems: Would You? Could You? Should You?  The simile in my presentation that I'm most proud of myself for writing?  "Open Source Software (OSS) is free like a piano listed in the classifieds is free:  Free grand piano.  Needs tuned and refinished.  You haul."

Brad's delivering his hands-on session Attack of the Pod People: Engaging Your Audience with Audio Podcasts.  He's currently trying to figure out how to get 50 pairs of headphones into Canada without breaking them or causing him to be pulled aside at any security checkpoints.

If you're going to be at the conference, be sure to stop us and say hello.  If you're not, no worries.  We'll be posting thoughts and musings about what we learn from our friendly neighbors to the north during and after the conference.  Plus, there's the U.S. conference coming up on October 9-11, 2008, in Pittsburgh.
