Getting ready to Present – a lot.

I’m getting ready to head out for my various meetings and presentations. I have just had another session added to EDUCAUSE – a joint presentation with Tom Barton of U. Chicago on Identity Management and Governance issues. I’m also presenting with Michael Gettes of Duke University on Identity Management and the work that Internet2 and the NSF Middleware Initiative are doing. Michael and Tom are both a kick so that sessions should be entertaining as well. It will be good to be through the next couple of weeks though. My schedule is pretty packed and things keep filling in the holes that I do have.

I guess this is what I get. When I first started working here at UW-Madison, I wished that I would get to present at these national meetings not just attend. My fairy goddog (I’m sure I have a goddog not a godmother) must have been watching and she waived her magic tail. Now I’m off to present at the Wisconsin Higher Education PeopleSoft User’s Group (WHEPSUG) on Wednesday, the CIO Council on Thursday, eInfrastructure on Friday and three times at EDUCAUSE next week. Six presentations in two weeks – that should keep me busy.

Oh, and they don’t have a hotel room for me at EDUCAUSE… yet.
