The Week in Review - Waiting for Snow

Good morning from Maine where my dog, my new snowshoes, and I are waiting for some snow to accumulate so that we can go play. While we wait, I'll do some blogging.

This week I had the honor of keynoting the third day of the Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference in Manchester, New Hampshire. This is a wonderful annual event that honors the legacy of Christa McAuliffe. The video tribute to Christa McAuliffe that was played before the keynote was truly moving. If you live in New England and you haven't attended the conference before, put it on your list of "must attends" for the future.

Here are the most popular posts of the week:
