So this is just a brain dump of frustration and flailing at trying to figure out how to balance everything that’s going on right now…Last week at the Building Learning Communities conference was great, but as an indicator of how crazed things have become, I would have had a better chance of talking to Darren Kuropatwa via Skype than face to face…I think I saw him for about 20 minutes total, and that was on a bus…same with a couple of the other people who I finally met like Sara Kajder (bus ride, 15 minutes), Marc Prensky (in the lobby after a presentation, 10 minutes, maybe) Steve Dembo (dancing with my wife on the Harbor Cruise…does a great butterfly, btw)…having the family there was great except that it was a lot to ask of them to sit by the pool or run around Boston in 95 degree heat while daddy was presenting and trying to catch up with everyone…and did I mention I had agreed to keynote a Tapped In Festival right in the middle of Tim Tyson‘s presentation on podcasting? (45 seconds, maybe, before one of the keynote addresses)…and that all I wanted as we sat in a 2 1/2 wait to cross back into the US from Canada after a quickly planned two night excursion to Montreal was a wireless connection so at least I could be doing some reading (don’t ask how many messages my Flock aggregator has waiting for me; over 100 from Stephen Downes at least)…so I’m really starting to wonder how I do this, how I keep reading and blogging in the midst of what has been just an insane month…and, oh yeah, I leave for Kansas on Wednesday.

I’m not complaining…just wondering…
