I'm making this post from the Denver International Airport -- thanks to a " free for a limited time only" high-speed internet connection provided by Qwest.

Denver has a variety of amenities for the traveler. The Qwest Business Center offers a series of cubicles (makes the business traveler feel right at home!), each with both a dialup and high-speed connection, good lighting and comfortable chairs. Just the ticket for "road warriors" looking to get some work done during layovers. It's nice to be able to check e-mail, directions to hotels and training sites and confirm rental car reservations while in transit.

Still no word on school for this semester. I've got until the end of the week to register for classes, but haven't been able to secure a spot in any of the classes that interest me. I'm hopeful that I'll be able to secure a spot in a course. I also intend to apply for spots in spring semester courses -- and all other semesters, for that matter -- well in advance of the registration deadlines. The classes themselves are taxing enough without the added pressure of wondering if you'll even get in!

Watch this space for progress updates.

Today I had our VP of IS ask me about blogs.

I told him that blogs would be a great way for us to build a knowledge base.

This diary has proven to me that a record of the learning process is valuable in considering not only what's been learned, but -- arguably more importantly -- how it's been learned.
