|I'm writing this from Katmandu, Nepal. Next week I will send you a report on my experiences here.
When I return to the New York AERO office after this coming weekend we will have little more than a month before the
, August 3-7 in Portland, Oregon. It is shaping up to be one of the best AERO conferences ever, with many new features, such as the first day's Ted-like
at the beginning and end of the conference, child care that will run as a democracy, The
Agile Learning Center programs
, fifty great
, keynotes from
, local school visits, etc. We haven't been able to announce all features because AERO staff have been traveling this month.
We have a decent number of
, enough to make a very good conference and networking experience, the most important part of the AERO conference. But I had expected to do better than this in our first return to the west coast in four years, so this will likely be our only conference in the area for a while. We've had many requests to bring the conference elsewhere, including back east. Of course there's still some time. So please do spread the word about the conference. We've previously asked you to tell your networks about it, to get beyond our core members, but not many have done so. So it's now or never. The same is true if you want any group rate or special help.
We look forward to seeing you in Portland!
