Anyone who attends a conference or two over the course of their professional career soon realizes that some of the best learning takes place in the hallway, away from the formal sessions and presentations. Float realizes this too, and in the interest of continuing this sort of learning beyond the event itself, we're posting some interviews in this month's issue. We hope you can share in that "hallway learning" via these short video interviews with some of mobile learning's brightest individuals.
King of The MOSHPit: Neil Lasher
Join Neil Lasher, The Learning Coach, as he talks about his key takeaways after a week of leading the MOSHPit, a specialized discussion area at mLearnCon. Offering a unique perspective on mobile and peer based learning as well as performance support is Neil's specialty.

Continuing the Learning
So, there you go. A lot of great content and reflections on what is going on in the mobile learning world in 2011. We thoroughly enjoyed mLearnCon 2011. Hope you were able to keep up with the Tweet stream and blog posts. If not, there is a great backchannel compilation of content available here.
Float is looking forward to going back on the road again. We're currently planing on venturing to TechWeek in Chicago and we're speaking at D2WC in Kansas City. Both look to be fantastic events with terrific host cities and great speaker lists. We're excited to continue to share our knowledge in the mobile community and to learn from other experts in the field.
Considering going to either? Contact us via Twitter and perhaps we can meet up to talk mobile.
