The Handbook of Reseach on Virtual Workplaces

At the risk of being accused of shameless self-promotion, I thought I'd plug in my most recent co-edited (with Kirk St.Amant, of ECU) collection, The Handbook of Research on Virtual Workplaces and the New Nature of Business Practices.

Matt, I will admit that my cover and ever topic are not as cool as yours, but you have an essay on new media in this one, so you are partly responsible for it.

LOL, thanks, PZ. I was going to blog about this, too. I am actually pretty excited about this collection, since it will help me feel better about my "professional communication" and "new media" cred in one blow. You guys are amazing getting this done so quickly, though. I can't wait to see the whole collection.

Thanks again for slippin' me in there.

Wow, thanks for the compliments. I am sure it will be the next great work of the Western Civilization. I have already forwarded the chapter on collaborative writing tools to the powers that be in our IT who can't get together enough courage to support some kind of a blog/wiki/collaborative environment. Of course, while they are hesitating, the masses are outsourcing all over the place.

heck, I even filled out that library request card so hopefully our library will order it. I hope everyone else here will do the same. Besides being nice, it's good to do that kind of thing for our own self-preservation.

I was going to plug this hefty volume myself, for obvious self-promo reasons as well, but I'm simply glad to be included in it, mostly. Plus, now is when I'm glad my last name is considered to be starting with an A. ..... sometimes it's a W, sometimes an A..., but since I'm at the top of the backside of the flyer, that's cool.

Matt, sorry I didn't get to talk to you more last week, sometimes it takes me a few more think-backs to a person I know online vs. an "in-person" person before I start being as talkative as I normally am. Also, I'm glad someone else had a good time at CCCC this time, because for me, it was the most horrible one ever, even though I had no classes to teach this semester and could enjoy it fully. Wednesday was the only good day I had; on Thurs., I caught something awful which turned into a horrendous sinus infection, ear infection, and bronchitis. ..stayed in my crappy hotel with a fever and horrible sore throat all Thurs. afternoon, p.m., all of Friday, and most of Sat., leaving early for the airport. I might have had strep too, the doc says the antibiotic I got finally on Mon. would kill that too. Still can't talk. Let's hope future CCCC don't hold similar moments. I think it's all those airplane germs and change in temps: outside hot, inside cold, inside packed session hot, outside in hall cold...etc.

I hear you, Waustin. :) The only thing you can really do to protect yourself is to drink lots and lots of...water. Yeah, water.
