I Never Dreamed . . . Bloggers at the Nexus

I want to acknowledge the other bloggers I met at the Nexus. It was such fun to walk up to someone whom I had never met before and say, "Hi! I'm Tina, and I read your blog!"

In no particular order, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting or talking with these bloggers:

  • Gabriel Shirley, key conference convener and a guy who teaches fish to dance
  • Zach Smith, who blogs from Japan and embodies quiet leadership
  • Keith Instone, a user experience guy who demonstrated unbelievable courage by spending two days with a group of "touchy-feely" process consultants
  • Mario Gastaldi, who blogs brilliantly and bilingually in Italian and English
  • Nancy White, who manages to be creative every second of every day (and maybe even while she's sleeping! - she told me she dreams blog posts . . . )
  • John Abbe, an old school geek who is far ahead of his time
  • Myriam Laberge, who is as composed and elegant as she appears in her photo
  • Loretta Donovan, who group blogs at Appreciative Inquiry Annotations, and . . .
  • Ivan Overton, a South African change agent who participated in the group Change Management Blog (alas, I didn't meet his fellow blogger Holger Nauheimer)

Other bloggers who were there, but whom I did not meet or perhaps met but did not know were bloggers . . .

  • Jon Kennedy, who supported the whole conference platform on his GroupMind software (thank you so much, Jon!)
  • Brian Childs, who was blogging for the host college, Bowling Green State University
  • Doug Germann, who I think I may have met in a World Cafe conversation, but did not know was a blogger at the time, and . . .
  • Kaliya Hamlin, who patiently tolerated my fumbling attempts at literally stepping through change during the Leadership Dojo

There's so much from the conference to share, and I know I'll never be able to document it all. Be sure to check out these other bloggers and the or Technorati tag "nexusforchange" for more reflections.


3/25 UPDATE: Correcting the link to Gabriel's blog, and adding another blogger:

Thanks for compiling the list, Tina. You can update the URL for Gabriel and add Peter Jones.

Also, I will slowly put together an aggregated feed of the attendees' blog so that someone can see them all as one stream.

Keith, thanks for catching my misses!

I'm looking forward to the aggregated feed . . . maybe you can tell me how you create that at some point. I'm curious.

Thanks for the tag Tina. What did you think of the Nexus? That was my first time seeing some of the methods and was eye-opening. I enjoyed it overall, but unfortunately had to solve a few computer issues and missed out on most of Friday.

Chiming in to thanking you for identifying the bloggers in the room. There is a list on the nexus site which I will check to see if it has all the ones you have noted.

I made an aggregated feed of bloggers from Nexus - Not as good as your favorite feed reader, but more convenient.
