I met a wonderful blogger who is a teaching in Asia (I think China or Japan...can't remember) last year via the bloggosphere.
Okay, that, in and of itself, is pretty cool to me...so I'm just going to read that a few times until it sinks in...so cool!
We exchanged emails and I think we even had a long phone call...I remember really enjoying his take on education and technology and we had a lot in common. But...alas...new jobs, new computers, life, etc. disconnected that link somehow...temporarily.
Today, I find myself remembering his blog title Utechtips and realized it wasn't in my feed reader in the Learning folder any more. BTW- Its a great title for a blog for him because his last name is Utecht...perfect.
So I'm checking out his blog today trying to virtually catch up with him and find out some very cool stuff.
Jeff Utecht is connected to the AWESOME web2.0 video going around. I remember when Jeff created HIS Awesome Web2.0 video...
...and we talked about posting it and also putting a link to it on the Wikipedia page. I had no idea his video was the inspiration for THIS ONE.
He tells the story in his blog and connects the web2.0 dots...brilliant. I would encourage everyone to read the following blog posts about his experience:
