A Few News Items and a Programming Note

The Gator Radio Experience is pleased to announce that our work will receive mention in an upcoming book by two professors from George Mason University, Lynne Schrum and Gwen Solomon. The book is titled How2 Web2 and Where2 Next and will be released from ISTE in 2010. While I'm not totally certain what the book is about, I have a hunch that it deals with student use of various mixed media and that our project will be mentioned in a short paragraph. Congrats to all Castilleja Gator Radio Experience team members, both past and present, for your hard work on this project over the past year! It is quite an honor to be referenced in a book!

Secondly, the Gator Radio Experience's music expert, Sam, will be participating in a Teen Tech Forum at the Western Association of Venture Capitalist meeting here in Menlo Park this week. Michael Arrington of Tech Crunch fame will be moderating the panel.  Good luck and have fun on the panel, Sam. We know you'll do great!

Programming Notes:
Our next show is scheduled for Tuesday, October 20th, 2009 at 7:00 pm pacific/10 pm eastern. We're looking forward to this show as we'll be joined by Castilleja Tech Department member, Adam Contois, for our music segment. Adam will play live music for the first time ever on the Gator Radio Experience! If you'd like a sneak peak of Adam's guitar playing skills, check out a podcast from the Edtechtalk Brainstorm in June.

Finally, it looks like our Alumnae reunion show scheduled for Tuesday, November 3rd at 7:00 pm pacific/10 pm eastern will actually be happening. While the committments are tentative, it looks like we'll be joined by GRE alumnae Stephanie (UC-Santa Barbara), Nicola (Cal Poly San Luis Obispo), Kaitlin (Georgetown), and possibly Angie (Pitzer). All four of these alumnae were key contributors to helping get the GRE project up and running last year it it will be wonderful to check in with them to see what they're up to. The 3rd of November also happens to be near the 1 year anniversary of our project (Wednesday, October 29th, 2008 was our first broadcast). We'll use the 3rd as an opportunity to celebrate one year of Gator Radio Goodness as well!

We hope you're able to join us on these upcoming broadcasts. Thanks for supporting the Gator Radio Experience!
