[evonline2002_webheads] Re: Fiesta in LT webheads office
- Once more, like every single Webhead, I want to salute Vance and
those at the Bistro, and those at the Fiesta, and those who joined in
from distant places. I was thrilled to see the videos (about which
use I have poo-pood for a very long time - maybe I should change my
thinking?); I was thrilled to hear the clatter of the dishes and the
laughter in the background. (although a little disturbed that on such
rare f2f occasions the celebrants remain cemented to long distance
technology...is that a good thing?); I was less than thrilled that I
could not get my mike to work...I could pass the Eluminate "recording
test" - I have talked through that mike in other Eluminate forums and
at talking communities, but for some reason it did not work. (just as
well, loudmouth that I am). In an hour I leave for a long weekend in
Nashville, so no more chance for me to participate.
Let me close with what I have said repeatedly in this space: You are
an amazing, amazing, amazing bunch of people. If there is one single
weakness that I think you have is that you don't elevate yourself
even more than you do -- is there a common Impossible Dream that
Webheads could fashion for itself?...then make it happen?..
Hugs to all and your extraordinary work!
Hibbs, on the campus of the University of Oregon, where it is nicely green.
