2008 CCCU Day 2

So I woke up this morning in another country. It is an odd place where they spell words a little differently such a the word center is spelled centre. They also have black squirrels...Weird

I also found that if you wish to watch a television show from the states online that they are blocked. When I came in on Tuesday, I thought I would relax by watching the Big Bang Theory, one of my new favorite shows so I went to hulu and found that it was not available in Canada so then I went to CBS and I just kept getting a lovely voice stating, "This content cannot be found" everytime I tried to watch full episodes. I'll have to check into that later since it is 9 pm and I'm watching "The Tonight Show" right now via satellite. I'll have to check on this a little later when I have more time.

Be that as it may, I am not here to test out the ability to watch television over the internet in Canada although that would be a great gig. I'm up for it if anyone wants an international internet media tester as long as my expenses are paid. Actually, I am at the CCCU Conference on Technology at Trinity Western University. It is a conference for work, but it is actually a great time as I get to hang out with what my kids call my "little technology friends" from all over the U.S. and Canada. It has been a great trip and a great time to interact with technology professionals from institutions just like mine. It is always great to get together and learn from and network with people from schools just like ours. The sessions have been interesting, the fellowship has been wonderful, the food has been good, and the host has been fabulous.
