You guys are hilarious. I wish I could have joined you for a drink but I had to drive home (3 long hours). I think we were at many of the same sessions. I too love the 2 minute video idea from Tim Tyson.

Dan, I'm so glad you enjoyed my workshop. We need to continue the conversation about writing our books. We are going to do this!

I'd would be honored to be on your show. I'm practicing saying "dude" right now ;)

Great post-MaineEd08 show! Spread the word for next year and I'm sure the WDL meetup will be even bigger.
Dan - meant to say hi at Liz's session. Didn't realize it was you until you said something later in the session - and I thought to myself, that's the guy that does the WDL show with Jeff! Funny when you recognize a voice but not a face.
Hope you both do a session of some sort next year. I've been to Jeff's sessions years ago and they were always fun.
In addition to Mark's liveblogs, I covered a couple other sessions with liveblogs and they can be accessed at tagged with MaineEd08. I've also got about 100 pics up at from the conference.
