Hi Jane, as you are aware the whole blogger café thing was a highlight of mine. I had few experiences, like our meeting… where we think we recognise someone in a de ja vu sort of way, only seeing realisation come across their face at the mention of your blog name.
Secondly, and really the reason for writing a comment is the emphasis that Derek placed on ‘the back-channels’ both opening and closing the conference. It was very powerful and hopefully raised the profile and importance of the edublogosphere as a means to further your PD.

I never quite managed to make it to the bloggers cafe, I guess that I had a different agenda. But the buzz was tangible throughout the entire conference. I think that if it is not an oxymoron we all came away buzzed and drained. The contrast on Friday was obvious, end of conference blues and no doubt the odd hangover or two!

Hi Jane.
1stly - I want to say that it is great to read your posts as you are honest and up front. I am inspired by this. I love honesty!
2ndly - I did feel a little secluded from friends as I interacted at the Cafe but this was b/c there wasn't enough tables for all of us (something we can easy fix next time).
3rdly - u have started a great thing. F2F in my books establishes roots no online interaction can develop.
So thanks for making it happen!

Hi Jane, I was also really pleased to see new bloggers coming up to the cafe asking questions about blogging and asking for help to get started etc. I had many good conversations with new bloggers at the cafe and saw other more 'seasoned' bloggers doing the same. I initially set my blog up to support my cluster however the incredible amount of new learning that I have experienced from interacting with others cannot be ignored.

I come from the viewpoint of a novice blogger and I think the Blogers cafe was very worthwhile and definetly not a clique gathering. I didn't spend long here but when I did I met some very friendly new people and got some great tips. The interactions I had with these new people alo changed the dimension of the conference for me this year. It was interesting to have people discussing and/or challenging the concepts that were being talked about as aposed to sitting back and just listening to them. - Amanda

Hi Jane, Sounds like the conference went really well. A real buzz on blogs around the Bloggers Cafe.
I have really noticed the difference this year dropping out of the f2f networks with clusters, mostly on my entusiasm for spending the necessary time on reading blogs and really reflecting on the content. I think it IS the lack of f2f that is making the difference. I prefer engaging with a real person in the holistic sense rather than just their intellect in the written form. It is the real-time, f2f conversation that is most valuable I find.
It is fun to be riding the wave though ay.... Lets hope the next bloggers cafe photograph has a whole lot more faces in it. :-)

I am just sorry I didn't talk with you - so much to do and so little time at these conferences. I think the bloggers cafe was great - it let me meet the people who have been keeping me afloat and teaching me all year. Found some more to bounce with in the future too! Why work alone or only within your school when you can be part of an online community - it is the way of the world and as educators I think we need to 'model' it.
I too am working on that balance thing! You are not alone ;-)
