Best wishes to all presenting, attending and especially those organizing the 8th Annual Media Ecology Association Conference that begins today in Mexico City.
Normally, I would be there, but my dog ate my airline tickets. Um..I left my airline tickets on the bus. Um...Here's the thing: My organization doesn't provide any stipends for me to attend the MEA Conference. Add that to the fact that my oldest daughter will be attending college starting in August, and I just couldn't do it. My daughter put it this way, "Dad, you have two choices, conference, college...college, conference." I had a Seinfeld moment. "Do I know you?" In the end, funding her college won out.
So enjoy, those of you attending! I'll be watching via the live video feeds as much as I can. Anyone else sending someone to college can join me in viewing at http://www.media-ecology.org.mx/.
