Owls at EDUCAUSE 2008?!? Last week represented my 10th EDUCAUSE Conference, and as they rarely say, the 10th time is a charm.  Or in this case, was charming.  Despite the cool weather in Orlando, the conference heated up Tuesday evening at our customer reception at Margaritaville on Universal City Walk where we got to mingle for hours with numerous customers who have meant so much to us over the years.  And though we had a few breakfast presentations at very early hours, we were pleasantly surprised by how many folks dragged themselves out of bed to learn about our upcoming product development plans.  Thank you, you early risers!  In case anyone missed us while they were there, I at least hope they caught a glimpse - or a hug - of our Wimba Pronto mascot.  Watch a video of Yarly dancing at EDUCAUSE 2008 and read a great blog posting by a librarian who snapped a picture of her with our owl.  Hooray for the land of amusement parks and giant fuzzy animals!
