Reporting out on Miami - a more substantive approach

Hi all,

I returned to MN from Miami early Monday morning (7:30 flight), with my Art
Educator of MN cohorts. I also enjoyed (as has been stated by many others),
meeting the Getty listserv folks, even though I could not attend either the
breakfast or the lunch due to conflicting sessions / plans. Thanks Judy for
your warm welcome and all the effort that you put into the badges, not to
mention the creative solution to repairing my reading glasses - they held up
through Sunday when I got to a Walgrens in South Beach to replace them.

It was also good seeing Maggie and Kay (again thanks to the having the
badge). As Bunki said, putting faces to names is very comforting. It
certainly helps to make the online experience a bit more human. Perhaps I
will get to meet more of you next year as the convention is being held in my
backyard - Mpls.

I am compiling a book that has the notes I took at the convention of many of
the workshops that I attended, along with handouts and some additional web
research that I engaged in to help fill out the presentations that were
given. If you are interested in receiving a copy, let me know and send me
your address - perhaps replying to my email versus the list would be better
in terms of privacy issues (seems to be a growing concern lately). I
offered this last year when I attended the NAEA Convention in NYC.
