The conference is called EuroBlog, so it’s not surprising we’re encouraged to blog live during the event (as it happened the WiFi connection wasn’t consistent enough to allow me to do this.).
So it’s OK to concentrate on screen and keyboard and ignore the speakers. Does this give me a licence to check emails, RSS feeds, blogs and Facebook? What about phone and text messages? What about talking to my neighbour?
I should put myself in my students’ seats more often. It’s not such a comfortable place to be.
