Sunrise on the way to the first session of the day, Google's Eye Opener Keynote, at FETC...and with such a busy schedule at the Convention Center, that is all I saw of the sun today! With their recent announcement of the demise of Picnik, thought it was appropriate to try out some of the tools I never had a chance to use, even as a Pro user.

Michael Wesch was a highlight this morning as he shared his views, through his cultural anthropologist lenses, about the impact of media on our world, with the mantra of moving "from knowledgeable to knowledge-able" (i.e., be able to sort, analyze, criticize, etc). As he mentioned, though, we can't stop there, we need to create 'wonder' if we are to capitalize on the new media. Thought-provoking session with important, though unanswered, questions to ponder and act upon. Universal Blvd & Convention Way, Orlando, FL

  2. It does sound great to be there... I really like that difference you point out with knowledge-able.
