Do you get themail on Wednesdays and Sundays?

For those who might be interested, I recently wrote an article about Using Skype as a Tool for Community Media Production. I may be presenting a workshop on this topic at the annual CTCNet conference in June, 2005, in Cleveland. If you're not planning on attending, I'll drive over to your house and show you this stuff anyway.

Ed Barron's got something to say.
You can be sure he has something to say.
He’ll tell you right after his morning constitutional walk
If he alters the route of his walk, will he have a constitutional amendment?
if so, does it need to be ratified by 2/3’s of the states?

Brad Hills is storytelling like no one else can. he's inviting you to Washington Storyteller Theatre. I'd go, if they'd have more Quicktimes clips on their web site. They sound like a great bunch of people.

Seeing David Sobelsohn's Footlights-related posting reminded her that it's time for the theater season in DC to start back up — and she’s very excited!
