Hi, Will --

Great reviews in ATD. Did you happen to see Clancy Ratliff's presentation that examined the online conversations following from your IHE piece? (Her analysis, I think, was insightful and productive.)

In any case -- I don't know how useful they are, but I took some fairly detailed notes on most of the sessions I attended, and I've put them online here:

I think the project you've got going with ATD's reviews is a terrific and invaluable contribution to building and sharing our disciplinary knowledge; I'm hoping that by blogging the sessions I attended, I might in some small way do something similar.

Best,

Mike
