Having just returned from a business trip to the west coast, I am warmed by the unusually pleasant mid-western April weather. Though I love northern California (having lived there for over 25 years) and a part of my heart will always be in San Francisco, the joy of spring bursting forth in its colorful and unpredictable way, can only really be appreciated in the colder climes.

And, it is also amazing that learning moments occur in so many ways by so many different methods.Certainly, I made use of a variety of online vehicles for that learning and information sharing in preparation for the trip: researched and bought airline tickets online, got the best hotel deal through priceline.com, scheduled my meetings and social outings through Outlook and Facebook, bought print pubs, San Francisco and 7X7, read the SF Chronicle on my Kindle enroute. Then, a flurry of texts upon arrival using my Blackberry, checking voice and emails, confirming meetings, restaurant locations. Ahhhh.
