As I mentioned last time, Wednesday, June 24, is when I'll be presenting at the Upgrading Online conference... and I just found out at the last minute that they needed a Twitter presentation because a scheduled speaker had to cancel. So, I'll be doing two presentations: one at 9AM Mountain time and the other at 10AM Mountain time — that second one is the Twitter presentation. The conference is free to all (isn't that great?), and you can find out more at the website: Upgrading Online Conference.
