It’s a wrap!  I can’t live in Austin without taking advantage of the mountain coming to Mohammed, and every year I try to spend a couple of days absorbing the mix of educational practitioner, policy maker, consultant, vendor, and long-haired “Other” you get at SXSWedu.  The event ran Monday-Thursday of this week in Austin, TX, USA.  In one corner Dr.
