NETA 2010

I'm here!  My first time at NETA.  Learning cool new techno thingies.  Hangin' with cool people...very cool people...techno folk rock.  I'm learnin' about Voice threads and got to listen to Peter H. Reynolds and Meg Ormiston.  There are over 2,000 folks here which kind of freaks me out.  Yikes!   But...I got to come home to my parents' house and hang with them a little so that is good!  Our music-techie group will present at one of the sessions next year.  Our wheels are turnin' as to what our focus might be...
