Behind the Times
I always feel like I go to the AoIR conference and am immediately confronted with the number of people I will not see present, given the embarrassment of riches in the conference schedule. This year the roster includes danah boyd, Mark Danger Chen, Mia Consalvo, Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Eszter Hargittai, Jeremy Hunsinger, John Logie, Montana Miller, Hector Postigo, and T.L. Taylor. It has been even worse than the 2006 4S conference for providing multi-track missed sessions.
