Thanks, and an invitation

First, thanks to Murat for sharing the chat article and to Johann for
setting up the discussion board. And thanks to all for legitimizing my
peripheral participation in the entire enterprise.

Now the invitation. As some of you already know, I need to give my
"New Faculty" presentation at my college (The College of New Jersey,
to be precise) on Friday, February 25th. The title of my presentation
is "Critical Ethnography and Computer-Supported Collaborative
Learning." The talk will be strictly limited to 15 minutes and will be
my way of letting folks at the college know that I am interested in
doing this type of work. Hopefully, this will flush out some potential
collaborators. Although I don’t plan to say much about CA, I do intend
to mention the work you folks are doing as an exemplar of what I am
interested in pursuing. Gerry and I chatted after the session this
week, and we agreed that it might be a good idea for me to give a
practice run.

Therefore, I would like to do a practice run of my presentation on
Wednesday, February 23rd at 2:30 in the Math Forum conference room. I
would need to do an uninterrupted 15 minute run-through, but would
then be interested in comments and suggestions. I am also working on a
longer literature-review article of the same title. However, I need to
warn you: Although I greatly admire Alan’s (theoretical) purity, I
don’t think I can aspire to it. This could get epistemologically

If you are wondering who the Hell I am, my home page is:

I’m planning to attend the data sessions (or as I prefer to think of
them, the Theory/Praxis Dialectic sessions) on Feb 16th and 23rd.
March 2nd won’t work for me, but March 9th is a possibility

See ya then.
