Well my busy season is about to begin. Next week I will be in Austin TX for TCEA. I will be doing some talks and demos about Small Basic and hanging around the Microsoft booth  from time to time. I also plan to attend EduBloggerCon TCEA, the CS/TA SIG meeting and some sessions. Most of all seeing some of the many wonderful Texas teachers I have met over the years. And some good Texas BBQ for lunch. I also have meetings this month in Miami and New York City.  Early March is SIGCSE. After that I think I will schedule a breakdown. Smile

I will be working in Florida for a couple of weeks the end of February and first week in March. Anyone in the Boca Raton area want to have a Microsoft guest come by their school? Let me know.

Just a couple of links to share this week.

A reminder that applications are now being taken for the 2011 U.S. Innovative Education Forum.

For all you Mac people, you can download download  a 30 Day Trial  Microsoft Office for MAC 2011. You can download the trial directly from Microsoft at https://www.microsoft.com/mac/trial. I hear good things about it BTW and not just from Microsoft people. There is an FAQ on the trial at http://www.microsoft.com/mac/faq/trial.
