BEER! (Or MERLOT, pick your poison)

There are a few webloggers attending the MERLOT conference that I haven’t met before… I’d love to be able to put some faces to the people I’ve been reading. Wanna go for a beer? (Coffee is an acceptable non-alcoholic alternative, especially before noon.) It would be nice to at least say “hi”.

I was discussing this with Stephen Downes, and he’s likely to use his much more widely read site to organize something. I hope we can make a meetup happen.

    I am game except I am supposed to me watching over my poster 5:00 – 6:30 PM (they do have wine tasting). If you do go to a spot (and please let’s get out of this freakin hotel), send me a location unless you can wait til later.

    I had forgotten about your poster session. If I’m able to attend the beer session — baby and partner health willing — I’d prefer to attend the poster session and head out together.

  3. I second Brian’s suggestion that we hold off until 6:30 so the poster boys can join in. We might as well take advantage of free wine and munchies, and then head out from there… Hopefully the baby and partner are feeling well tomorrow (sleep is a wonderful thing!)

    we could all just stand in a circle around Alan’s booth drinking wine 😉

  5. Hi, as a conference organizer I want to make a note re the wine tasting that D’Arcy mentioned. It is a wine tasing and not a ‘all the wine you can drink” event. I send this as I’m a bit concerned that attendees may feel that it is a place to have a few glasses of wine before heading off to dinner. My understanding is that we’ll each get a very small amount of wine (but maybe we’ll be surprised).
