The conference racket

Posted on November 12, 2015


Hey, some of my best friends are … oh, academics.   Still, sitting here in a college 100% cut off from the state budget, lookign at conference blurbs makes this nasty taste in the back of my throat.   Smiling white-breads write instant acronyms: “We are calling the successor to the LMS the next-generation digital learning environment (or NGDLE).”    They’ll gather and wine and dine (accommodations are >200$ night).

Think I’ll swish down some strong tea and get back to what I do, and look for “unconferences.”
