Hi Betty, Have you heard about the Saturday Series of workshops that are sponsored by VASA? The first one will be on Sat. Dec. 6 in Abingdon, VA at the Virginia Highlands Community College, 9:30 a.m. Two workshops will be presented, GROW with Kim Weitkamp on marketing and DIG IT with Paul Conco on developing the oral history. Lunch is included in the price of $75 for VASA members and will be followed by coaching, story labs, and story swaps. Contact me for more info if you're interested in coming. Mimi
Hi. Are you the Betty Smith who used to work for NSN? If so, then I'd recognize your voice better than your person. I've talked to you a number of times on the phone. If you're not that Betty Smith, then I don't know you. But, I'd like to. Techo geek and web designer sounds interesting to me since I'm a real novice. I'd like to rub elbows with you--or should I say "link words"? Mimi Rockwell in Bristol
Dear CBS, we should raise a glass today, for no matter how much it is couched in friendly, polictically-nuanced, non-lawsuiting language, an era has come to an end. Let's hope for the brighter future, eh? -Sean (raving lunatic)
You will always be CBS to me. :-) Can I be your brusque raving lunatic? Please? Got an apology email from the one-who-can-not-be-named but not sure I believe it after the goodbye letter from today. It was very bush-esque in that if there are any thoughts other than "rah-rah," we're hate storytelling and all it stands for. Moving on.....
You know, I am seriously thinking about driving up to listen to some good stories when the 'storytelling residencies' are going on in Jonesborough. Thank you so much for your offer to meet me and take me on a "real" first class tour. I will have to check out the schedule against my schedule and come up with a plan.
