NZ Bloggers' Cafe at ULearn 07

Hey all you NZ edubloggers out there, want to put a face to the blog?  The NZ Bloggers Cafe is happening this year at ULearn 07.  Come along and engage with other bloggers in some lively debate about life, the universe and everything.  This would also be a great place for 'budding bloggers' to come and learn some tips and tricks from 'blooming bloggers'.  The cafe will be open during morning tea and lunch breaks so come along and join in the discussions. The venue will be advertised in the conference handbook and I am told there will be some aromatic coffee available!

We will need people to help man the cafe during these break times, the idea for the cafe is twofold.  The first is so that we can all get together and meet in person the minds we have been reading.  The second is to be of help to other bloggers just starting out and who would like some tips and tricks.  If you would like to help, please leave me a comment.

I would like to kick the cafe off with a targetted discussion during lunch on the first day of conference.  There has already been a suggestion of looking at the issues raised in the Karl Fisch presentations, if you have a topic you think would be a great one to get us started please also leave a comment.

I look forward to meeting my aggregator in person, there are some great bloggers in NZ and I'm sure there are some I haven't discovered yet.

My hand is up!

It will be great to see each other and chat in REAL LIFE. I will have to get my hair done and a make-over. Maybe I can hire a body double!

Thanks for getting this off the ground.

I am going up to Auckland on Monday so will be well acclimatised by then!

Ah, now I am jealous! I had resigned myself to the fact that I could not attend ULearn this year, things are just to busy down here!

But now you have outdone yourself and arranged this, which I would love to attend. Maybe I can hook up digitally during a session?

Hey there Jane,

You can count me in as well. :-) I will be the one with the red carnation...

This is great! Looking forward to seeing everyone at ULearn. This is my fourth uLearn (and 3 Learning at Schools) so the idea of a Bloggers' Cafe has added the zing back into this ICT thing for me :)

Can't wait to meet all these great NZ bloggers that I have been reading over the last little while.
Is there a secret handshake I need to know? ;P
