It was great to catch up with Michael Feldstein (eLiterate Blog, Oracle's Principal Product Manager for Oracle's Academic Enterprise Solutions). Michael was attending the JA-SIG annual conference. I am very disappointed that I was not able to attend the conference even though it's in my backyard. JA-SIG is one of the great but not very well known success stories in higher education. The JA-SIG leadership needs to be commended for building a sustainable community that is making fundamental contributions to information technology in higher education. These aren't flashy folks but they are getting the job done.
We did talk very briefly about the Blackboard lawsuit. What a huge and costly distraction it has been for all of us.
