Today was a meeting, a very long meeting. I had planned on pitching my plans for the educator’s corner of the site again but after 5 hours of meeting time my hamstrings had enough and I couldn’t stay seated any longer. It was interesting to hear of all the groups that have come together to work on the many facets of the collaboratory and their plans for improvement over time. Each group has to maintain their own interests, of course, while the primary functions of bringing information and serving as a portal for connectivity are preserved. It can be a precarious balance. I have faith that the team can manage their charge in good faith.
