If you’re attending HighEdWeb next week and if you’re like me, you’re at the point where you’re counting down the minutes until you arrive in Portland. The backchannel is buzzing and I hear there’s already plans in the works for karaoke outings and brunch meet-ups with friends. No doubt, the networking at HighEdWeb is just as robust […]

Sometimes we browse Amazon reviews or look for Consumer Reports’ confirmation. Sometimes brand reputation affects us or we solicit our friend’s recommendations. But the beautiful future of perfect decision making based on wholly […]
