You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"

Don't let fear convince you that you're too weak to have courage. Fear is the opportunity for courage, not the proof of cowardice.
McCain, John (2004, September). In Search of Courage: Finding the Courage Within You. FastCompany, 51-56.
In the search for character and commitment, we must rid ourselves of our inherited, even cherished biases and prejudices. Character, ability and intelligence are not concentrated in one sex over the other, nor in persons with certain accents or in certain races or in persons holding degrees from some universities over others. When we indulge ourselves in such irrational prejudices, we damage ourselves most of all and ultimately assure ourselves of failure in competition with those more open and less biased.

We are pleased to announce Computers & Writing Online 2006: Making Knowledge on the Digital Frontier-a conference for all educators. This conference occurs completely online and complements the face-to-face conference that will be held in May at Texas Tech University.
We invite proposals from individuals and teams addressing the interface between writing practice, writing pedagogy, and technology. Proposals can be submitted for synchronous, asynchronous, or poster presentations. Synchronous presentations and poster sessions will occur on Saturday, February 18th in the English MOO (encore Learning Environment) at Texas Tech University. The schedule allows one hour for synchronous presentations and 45 minutes for poster sessions. Posters will remain up the entire day, and poster presenters are encouraged to spend one or more poster sessions in the virtual room with their posters. Asynchronous presentations will occur over five-day periods from February 6th through 28th using the ComputersandWriting.org site, the information portal for the Computers & Writing community.
We encourage proposals on a wide range of topics that address the conference theme of "Making Knowledge on the Digital Frontier." These topics include but are not limited to:
* "New" technologies such as wikis and blogs in the writing classroom-technologies that are changing the way we deliver and administer courses in support of our students' learning
