Subject: Teaching in the Community Colleges conference
> TCC 2004
> NINTH ANNUAL TEACHING IN THE COMMUNITY COLLEGES ONLINE CONFERENCE
> April 20-22, 2004 (1000 GMT)
> Pre-conference Dates: April 13-15, 2004
> "SURFING THE BROADBAND WAVE: THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME"
> Faster. Wider. More?
> Broadband is the megaway answer to the six-lane punyway, the Godzilla
> tunnel bypass to the wormhole straw. Broadband is the solution to traffic
> jams, gridlocks--the answer that will turn the trickle of information into
> a torrent, the foot-high swell into a tsunami.
> As educators, we're on the lineup, sitting on our boards, watching the
> super set roll in. From first to last, the waves increase in size, each
> dwarfed by the one behind. The first wave in the set is upon us. It's
> relatively small. The others, however, are right behind, each increasingly
> bigger, faster, and more powerful, and the last threatening to turn day
> into night, shutting out the sun and sky.
> We're experiencing the first ripple of the broadband wave that's forming
> in the distance. Some of us will see the squirt and say, "Ain't no big
> thing." Others will raise their eyes, point to the massive wall that's
> blotting out the horizon, and ask, "Oh, yeah?"
> Join us at the ninth annual Teaching in the Community Colleges Online
> Conference, and share your take on "Surfing the Broadband Wave: The Shape
> of Things to Come."
