    Mike, this site is a virtual treasure chest for educators and being a webmaster myself I know it looks much easier than it really is to put this together. I am currently on the steering committee for an upcoming conference, and I’d like to bring it to your attention!
    The 8th International Transformative Learning Conference, 2009 in Bermuda. The theme is Reframing Social Sustainability in a Multicultural World. I wonder if there is some way you could review the conference and share it with your readers (and invited them to attend or submit papers).
    Thanks again for your work.
    Bill
