PCMA EduCon Wrap-Up

Just back from the very successful PCMA 2011 Education Conference in nearby Baltimore. Convene kept busy there -- we produced the show daily for AIBTM, which was co-located with the Education Conference at the Baltimore Convention Center, and also blogged and tweeted while on site. (Here are my and Barbara Palmer's Twitter handles. You'll find Convene's Twitter stream in the righthand column of this blog.) In the interest of housekeeping, here's a handy roundup of the links we tweeted for Convene interviews with some EduCon speakers:

* Vernice "FlyGirl" Armour, the U.S. military's first female African-American combat pilot
* Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronic Association
* Jeff Hurt, director of education and engagement for Velvet Chainsaw Consulting
* Chef Jeff Henderson, convicted drug dealer turned five-star chef

All of these links take you to Convene's digital edition, which requires you to register. But it's totally worth it, because you get to read these articles if not the way God intended then something pretty darn close.
