We are @VConnecting from #Domains17

Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) is a project held close to the hearts of many of us in the Virtually Connecting community. This year marks the first conference dedicated to DoOO: “Domains 2017, Indie EdTech and Other Curiosities“.

We are excited to offer four opportunities to connect virtually to the event and converse with the people at Domains 2017, Indie EdTech and Other Curiosities which is being held at the 21c Museum Hotel in Oklahoma City, OK, USA on June 5 and 6, 2017.

We have onsite buddies Sundi Richard, John Stewart, Karen Cangialosi, Alan Levine and Keegan Long-Wheeler connecting you through our virtual buddies Terry Greene, Alana Callan, Christina Hendricks, Christian Friedrich, Autumm Caines, and Ken Bauer. Virtually Connecting sessions allow virtual participants to engage in conversations with onsite participants – it’s all informal, more like a conference hallway chat. Our first session will actually involve on onsite roaming buddy for the Domains Fair, it should be great!

*New* Tuesday June 6, 12:30pm with Lee Skallerup Bessette, Jesse Stommel, Jim Luke

A late addition with a lunch break conversation with Lee Skallerup Bessette was scheduled yesterday and today Jesse Stommel said he could join
and Jim Luke asked to join as well – this is proving to be a great session. Jessie will slot in as goalie and Jim in right field. The positions are an inside joke, don’t worry if this makes no sense at all.

Alan Levine will be our onsite buddy joined by Ken Bauer as virtual buddy for this session.
