I should add, I guess, that I doubt there will be any room for laptops
being open or online reaction to activities as-they-happen. there
might be time to reflect on sections of the training at lunch times,
or breaks, or after our day is done, and I wanted to give that option
to folks who felt like sharing their thoughts in a more informal
setting than a blog post. I apologize if it made anyone feel pressured
to share who doesn't want to - that wasn't my intent at all.
