FYI, OLA does have a collaborative blog this year:
There’s a good number of contributors, though it doesn’t look like they all have posted yet. I’m pretty sure there are a few others out there blogging the conference. I haven’t attended any sessions yet, so that’s why I haven’t had much to say about the speakers.
Having a cold (or whatever this is) isn’t good for running around with. I had lunch with some former co-worker from U of Windsor, and now I’m going to try to take a quick nap before the next plenary session since I feel dizzy sitting down. Really, even though I’m not paying for this room, it is worth it to get a room at the conference hotel; it’s great being able to pop back in here to rest!
