I’ve had some good feedback to the blog posts. These are selected notes; any errors or omissions are mine. I welcome comments! So far I haven’t put any analysis together; it is all muddling around in my brain currently. I thought the E-books session in particular was a good follow-up to our similar session at the CALL conference in May. It is now Tuesday afternoon. The last few sessions are running and people seem to be quietly moving out, heading back home. See you in Toronto!
