First, on Friday, June 5th at 2 pm eastern, we will have a “very special episode” of T is for Training  as part of the summer long conference called:

“Conversants :-) A Participatory Conversation,” a new idea in professional development for challenging economic times.

Here is the keynote given by R  David Lankes: It is a link to a video on Vimeo. Introducing Conversants

Join us for an engaging hour of dialogue about sharing and collaborating on great training resources.

Second, on Friday June 14th, 2009 we will tape an episode LIVE at the Pres4Lib2009 conference.  We had one live taping before at CIL and it was a big hit.

I hope this one goes as smoothly.   And I hope the microphone is a snwoball.
