More than the sessions themselves (which I’ll blog about soon), I was looking forward to attending NCTM 2012 to get a chance to meet some math tweeps, especially Christopher Danielson, aka ‘The Reflections in the Why Readership’. After arriving in Philadephia, I was excited to see that Chris Lusto had also made the trip.
In real life, @ChrisHunter36 does not look like a Tim Burton line drawing. FYI
It was great to spend time and learn with my fellow Christophers as well as Dan Meyer, Karim Ani, Michael Pershan, and Bree Murray. These people are as tall, handsome, smart, witty, and friendly in person as they are online.
Tip of the day: if you have coffee with @Mathalicious and @ddmeyer, be extremely tall.
After hearing his son talk about the families of people he knew online, Mr. Lusto commented to me on how amazing it was that we had this friendship despite never having met face to face. He said it was unbelievable to someone of his generation. A year ago, I wouldn’t have believed it either.
