Report from NECC 2006

This was the crowd that attended David Thornburg's inaugural session at the Open Source Lab in San Diego for the 2006 National Educational Computing Convention. The lab was almost always so full for our sessions that attendees would stand at the email stations in the back to follow along. We even had full attendance at the final session of the conference, when most people are thinking about--or have already started for--home. (Of course, that was yet another session on moodle, which has the most significant buzz of any Open Source application in education.)

More photos are available at Photos of the Open Source lab are tagged with "OpenSourceLab" while a more general search for "necc" or "necc2006" currently pulls up several hundred others. Paul Nelson (who took the shot above) recorded a couple of interviews that are available as podcasts at Those who attended or volunteered can contribute to our wiki page for future events at

Many thanks to our volunteers, presenters, and attendees. And a great big thanks to ISTE ( for providing the venue.
