Posted by Buffy J. Hamilton
Come join the Georgia COMO 2008 Ning! What is the Georgia COMO 2008 Ning? It is a social networking space where COMO attendees (as well as those who may not be able to attend in person but who want to get a taste of the conference happenings from afar!) can share ideas and network with other professionals and peers!
In addition, we are inviting everyone who is presenting to jump into our “Session Discussions” forum! This is a space where speakers and presenters can tell others about their presentations and embed content for their presentations. As a member of our Georgia COMO 2008 Ning, you can embed content on “My Page” and share ideas with others. Ning allows members to upload videos, photos, and other multimedia content—what a great Web 2.0 way to share the knowledge from our upcoming COMO 2008 conference! In addition, members may create or join special interest groups where you can network with colleagues on a smaller scale. You may also add a Georgia COMO 2008 Ning badge to your blog, wiki, or website!

The Georgia COMO 2008 Ning is a terrific way for speakers and presenters to share information from their sessions.
