Webheads and webloggers are amazing people!
|For days now, I've been trying to catch up with my work for the two EVO 2005 sessions I've signed up for; namely "Becoming a Webhead" and "Blogs in ESL-EFL." And while I've been learning a lot (and yet never quite catching up!) and finding a lot to interest and amaze me, nothing I've learned so far amazes me as much as the people I've been meeting over the past 4 weeks! I've constantly felt overwowed (if you can come up with weird words like "wiki" and "blog," please don't grudge me my "overwowed" ;-) !!) by all the wonderful possibilities of technology and Computer-Assisted Language Learning, *but* put all those beside the amazing people I have met and they become pretty insignificant! Like usual, I'm too rushed to do justice to the effect you people have had on me, but I just couldn't disconnect today without sending a few words out into cyberspace and asking you all a question:|
Is it just that wonderful people go in for this stuff, or does this stuff make people wonderful?
And no, I'm not just still wondering if your day is more than 24 hours (previous posts), although I'll be ... if I can figure out how you all manage! (I'm still embarrassed by not getting around to acknowledging many kind comments on my blog, or repaying the compliment by checking out other people's blogs and leaving comments there.) I'm talking about your wonderful helpfulness and patience, your sense of humor, your selflessness--in a word, the whole package! So whichever of you is still reading my blog (and for the life of me I still can't understand why anyone would want to!), thank you ... for ... (how to put it?) ... everything you've taught me. It goes way beyond anything the syllabuses had led me to expect.
