Goodbye Wow2, I love you!

Tonight will be my last show as a co-host of the Women of Web 2.0 on Edtechtalk.  It has been a great year and a half and I'm so thankful for Jennifer Wagner, THE Wow2 founder. for reaching out to me in the fall of 2006!  Wow! 

A big thank you to the other to cohosts Sharon Peters and Cheryl Oakes.  These three ladies will always have a special place in my heart.

I leave the show with mixed feelings.  It is such an exciting important part of my own life, and yet I have three children who are growing older by the moment.

With two very active middle schoolers and a busy elementary student as well, there are things only Mommy can do.  Right now, my family has to be #1. 

My youngest needs books read to him every night.  My other two need sports uniforms washed and everyone really likes a good meal on the table each night.  (Who doesn't?)

So, this isn't goodbye to webcasting for me.  Julie and I are working ahead on a variable time Flat Classroom presents screen webcast that we'll start up in the fall.  We want to do it for students and teachers and let students present and be a part of the shows that we'll schedule sometimes during the school day.

I'm not a webhead, so, not sure what venue we'll be on, but as always it will be creative commons and shared.

So, tonight will be it.  It has been an excruciatingly hard decision and I only expect Wow2 to grow and flourish because there will be an amazing new woman (or two) to step in and take the show to even greater heights.

Best wishes and perhaps I'll see you online tonight!

I'll always be a Woman of Web 2!

  1. Huge bummer! As I “tweeted”, I first “met” you on Wow2. I listen to that podcast every week! Thanks for the great links and sharing along the way. I’ll keep reading this blog and wait to hear about your next venture. (And thanks for encouraging me to start blogging.)

  2. Vicki, what a great post and tribute to our audience. While Jen, Sharon,Vicki and Cheryl all represent WOW 2.0, it is a much greater force than the four of us ever thought it would be when we banded together to represent the voice of women back at NECC 2007.
    As some would say, Mission Accomplished! However, our mission is still a powerful force and all of our members are part of the force and voice for women in technology, internationally. I hope the best for you and your dear family. I am so glad I was able to share some moments with them in San Antonio. Keep on doing great work. Cheryl

  3. It was great to meet you at NECC and hear the WOW2 show live. It is too bad that you have to leave the show, but you have to stick to your priorities. I have just given up a teaching assignment that I loved in order to spend more time with my own family. I have to believe that in the end, we will not be wishing we had spent more time working instead of with our kids. Best of luck to you. I’ll miss you on WOW2. Hope you will drop in on the show now and then as a listener and part of the chat

  4. I have enjoyed your contributions to WOW2 and will continue to watch your blog. Watching the show live last year in Atlanta, was the highlight of NECC for me! And even though I couldn’t be there this year, I was delighted to be involved in the planning for the round table at the bloggercon and can’t wait to see the footage that Elaine Roberts and Vikki Myers shot.

    From working moms everywhere, thanks for saying that you CAN’T do it all, all the time. I admire your dedication to family. See you in the blogosphere!
