Thanks for being interested in participating in the 2011 edition of live blogging A Whole New Mind with students from Arapahoe High School. Please add your name, title, location and link (if you have one) next to the date(s) and time(s) you would like to blog. You can read more about the fishbowl discussion techniqueand see an example of what the live blog looks like, or read about previous years' experiences. You may add yourself to any slot, even if someone else is already there, although it would be great if we could not overload any one period with more than 3 or 4 people or so. Please also add your biographical information at the bottom of the page (alphabetical order by last name - look at last year for formatting).
