Here it is, the last day of the conference. I present today and then am flying out a little bit after that. So if you’re here, take good notes in your sessions today.
Today is the blogging think tank presentation I’m giving with Ann Emery, Sheila Robinson, and Susan Kistler. It’s at 9:50 AM in the International Ballroom Center. Hope to see you there!
There were thousands of attendees at this conference. Could you imagine what it would look like if just 100 (a few percent of the attendees) wrote a nice long blog post about their experience and the lessons they learned?
Journals get a lot of heat for not opening up their articles online. But why expect a business model to change when the community has not. This is a call for more attendees to open up their experiences for the greater community.
We could have so much more valuable expertise and rich context if you shared your lessons and wrote a post. The web is built by people like you.

Intoxicating Allure of Hope
This one inspired by Rhonda in the Cartooning Evaluation 2013 page comments who brought up her list of new & entertaining evaluation phraseology.
There were lots of references to geography: “geography of evidence” among the favs. In the poetic category we have “How does it enter the evidence bundle?” and “the intoxicating allure of hope” that contexts don’t shift. One you’ll like: we asked about use “to glorify Patton”
