A Cat May Look at a King

"'A cat may look at a king,' said Alice. 'I've read that in some book, but I don't remember where.'"
-Lewis Carroll (1832-1898)
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Carolyn Foote very kindly offered to help me get started on Skype, so I decided to take a peek at some of the chats taking place at the BLC in Boston. Many of the educational bloggers on my Google Reader feed are participating in these conversations and I was looking forward to sharing their thoughts in real time. Luminaries like Will Richardson, Ewan McIntosh, David Jakes and others maintained a constant stream of comments, insights and links. Amazing how they managed to convey so much meaning in so few words! Some of the Skypers are providing transcripts in their blogs. For the more methodical thinkers, like me, reading the discussions in a more static mode is much easier than trying to follow along.

Although "a cat may look at a king", I'm not sure if a cat may converse with a king.
