Summer Issue, 2004

By golly, we have a lot to report since our last issue! Ann Orr has just returned from the NECC conference in New Orleans (see Ann's report on page 16), and I've been just about everywhere --- to Bologna Italy, for the Bologna Children's Book Fair; to South Korea for a lecture for the Korean Society of Children's Media; to Los Angeles to the E3 show and a panel at the MIT Learning Arcade; and to Washington, DC for the IDC conference where I was able to pick some brains for this issue of LittleClickers. If we're a bit late with this issue, that's our excuse! But we sure have a lot to bring you up to date on.

The biggest news is the opening of the Mediatech Foundation in our home town, which will house our software library, and will provide a home for future research and testing activities. Located in the upstairs of our library, this is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization that will showcase the latest software and hardware in a public laboratory. It is a noisy, exciting place, where the latest technology is the catalyst for socialization and learning. If you make it to Flemington, NJ, please drop in and give us a visit.

Enjoy the issue!

A staff change note: Tracey Lyons will be taking Pat Sevchuk's position as Circulation Director, Tracy will start in August. Welcome Tracey!
