Kids Online unconference next week (register today!)

Wanted to send a call out to say if you still haven’t bought your registration for the 11/13 Kids Online un-conference, you should this week.  I mean, it’s next week, so it makes sense, you know? 🙂  I know there are a bunch of you who intend on going, who just haven’t bought your tickets yet.

For you travelers who haven’t made arrangements yet (I am known to procrastinate too):

For reference, I talked with Kaliya and the closest hotels are the Avante and the Hilton Garden Inn. I haven’t decided which I am staying at yet, but I hear the internet cafe area in the Avante is great.

SJO is the closest airport, but SFO would work too.  Oakland is a bit of a trek, but if your air deal is rockin there and you don’t mind traffic, go for it.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.  I have been SLAMMED with my job lately (We are on air on BBC2!), thus not even bookmarking things of late.  I am getting back to all the many emails I have been guilty of putting off today.  Thanks for all of your patience with me!!!

  1. Joi, Nancy Gruver’s staying with me at my place, so wanted to offer the environs for any evening pow-wows in case folks need a spot to continue the conversation; I’m on the water in San Mateo (mid-Peninsula) so a good pit stop if anyone’s en route back to S.F. (for those that are day-tripping vs. overnighting) Maybe a decadent dessert grand finale? 😉

    p.s. Will offer to be an airport shuttle for any of you inbound too, so just zap a note my way if anyone needs help.

  2. Excited to see everyone and get some good deep conversations going!

    I am staying at the Hilton Garden Inn and renting a car. Thursday is all you all, so I am down for any/all pow wows.
