Tech and Tools for the Trip

I've been encouraged to keep a journal of this Australian October Adventure so I figured I might want to add some tools and techniques to my repertoire. The first is mapping, mostly so my relatives can track me! Today I played with the trip mapper at Wayfaring. I'm not sure the new Blogger beta allows iFrames, but I'm about to try and find out! I put the first leg into the map to experiment - we'll fly out of Seattle and to Melbourne via Los Angeles.

I am thinking about what else I might use besides a blog. Pictures.. flickr, etc. Audio? Video? It has to be easy. My focus will be on interacting with people, not with my laptop and gizmos.

What would you suggest?

It's Official - My Speaking Tour is Announced

This makes my trip all the more real: Nancy White National Speaking Tour.

I'm trying to think about how to best use this blog for the trip - not just as my own trip journal, but to engage folks who I'll be meeting along the tour. Ideas?

Priming for the Adventure

In October I'll be spending much of the month in Australia, going to every Territory for workshops on a variety of topics, mostly around online interaction, communities and other such good stuff. In preparation, I'm starting a fresh blog. Hopefully the folks who I'll be gathering with will have a chance to log in here prior to my arrival at their "neck of the woods" and we can do a little online ramp up before we are face to face!
