I had some computer trouble, so the previous post, dated march 5th, is actually from the 3rd.
I hadn't updated my Wireless driver, and that caused a "blue screen of death" type of error. Fortunately the people at Intel were able to fix it. I wasn't the only one.
I got to Portland at around 10PM, after a 4-hour flight from Houston. I slept most of it. There was a van waiting for us... correct... I waited with John Woodrow, from the UK, for our van to arrive and got the hotel a little past 11pm.
They were out of rooms in the smoking area, so I'm stuck in a suite where I can't smoke. That kind'a sucks. I didn't remember how much it sucks to smoke in this country.
Now that the first day of the roundtable is over (it was Sunday), we are taking a look at the new version of the Intel Teach Essentials course (the one we do in Colombia). It looks pretty cool, with more pedagogical content, new materials and the use of collaborative online tools such as Google docs, blogs and a wiki.
It's time for lunch, so I'll run there and post some more later.
So far it's been real interesting and fun. I hope we can bring this new version to Colombia soon (this year) and hopefully one of the other programs.
