"Yeah, I caught them on Twitter and the guy there said he would look into any schools that might be willing to talk about it. So apparently there are definitely schools using the service."

Stephen! Thanks for the add. I had no idea you were on here.

Are you planning on going to the HighEdWeb conference in October? It's in Springfield, MO. It's supposed to be a great one.

It was nice meeting you this weekend. Tell Amanda I said, "Hello, mon petite!"
