Hey, hey… should be a good event tomorrow (May 29, 2008) at Champlain College (Burlington, VT)…
Fulfilling Vermont’s e-State Potential
Building Community in a “Connected Age”
Front Porch Forum will be among several community-building efforts featured. Lewis Feldstein from New Hampshire, who co-wrote Robert Putnam’s follow up to Bowling Alone, will provide the keynote.
Another fun angle… Cathy Resmer from Seven Days and Bill Simmon from Candleblog will be live blogging the event… so tune in, follow along, and comment as we go. I hope that blog comments will find their way into the live conversation at the event.
UPDATE: A good day! Read all about it…
And Bill even snapped some art photos… or whatever you call this one…
