Have We Mentioned Blazing-Fast Internet?

Greetings, all.

I just returned from the Region 1 conference and I couldn't be more energized about our event in April. Region 1 was a fantastic host, their conference planning committee really outdid itself, and the available wireless Internet was a huge boon to social media support and dissemination of ideas throughout the event. I'm really excited to say that we'll have the same support from our conference hotel.

I've been on-site at the Doubletree Charlottesville with my laptop twice now, and both times found the wireless signal to be really strong and easy to access. The most exciting part about this, from perhaps a slightly selfish perspective, is that it will make the applied technology sessions I'm leading (a Pre-conference workshop and applied follow-up sessions on both days) really effective. This would be a great conference to which to bring your laptop so you can get online in real time during these sessions to create content, share observations with your social media connections throughout the conference, or venture into the spaces we're talking about to simply get a "hands-on" level of experience with tools you're considering for your personal or office-wide advising plans.

So, bring your computing devices and get ready to get down to business in real-time. See you all in C-ville!
