Although I hate to leave the paradise of San Diego, I am spending the next three days at the 2011 CALI Conference for Law School Computing at Marquette. I will be attending many of the wonderful sessions, as well as a meeting of the CALI Board of Directors on Friday evening (on which I serve as Vice-President, along with my colleague Ken Hirsh). CALI is doing wonderful work on a variety of projects for faculty, including A2J Author, Classcaster, eLangdell, Free Law Reporter, InstaPoll, Lawdibles, Legal Education Commons, MediaNotes, and Webinars, in addition to their bread and butter CALI lessons for students (Jim Maule has produced over 250 tax lessons, which I highly recommend). In many ways, this is my favorite conference of the year, as it is the only gathering of law school faculty, librarians, and IT folks. I am looking forward to reconnecting and breaking bread with friends in all three spheres. I suspect I will leave Milwaukee with a severe case of building envy.
