“If you don’t much care where you want to get to, then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.” By The Cheshire Cat in Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.
One of my favorite conference is NCties, an ISTE affiliate for North Carolina, and I look forward to it every year.

- Todd Nesloney
- Kevin Honeycutt
- Richard Byrne
