We'd love to hear from as many folks as possible on this, and we're compiling those thoughts here. Add a link or a few sentences of your own.
Algot and I first met through our mutual interest in open educational resources. (Algot, was it the dictionary that first brought us together? Eight years ago or before that?) Algot was a massive contributor to our public domain dictionary, and as you may know, he is a word fanatic.
Once when I was in Boston, Algot and I actually met f2f. We had a very nice seafood lunch.
And this year, Algot joined CLMOOC. I have been so happy to see him connect with so many in our community and embrace the CLMOOC ethos.
Thank you, Algot, for being such a great connection over the years and for being so generous with your time and talents.
Hmm. Guess I'm overdue for a dictionary binge.
Anyway, ONE can never interact twice with the THING anyway since ONE changes and so does the THING. 🤓

I first met Susan through the K12 Online Conference, which we both volunteer for. Susan and I have spent a lot of hours on Skype together!
This year, Susan joined CLMOOC and fit right in with our community here. One of the surprises for me was that through this new connection, I learned things about Susan that I never knew before. I knew she was a prolific and talented photographer, but I didn't know she was also a great writer. I am happy to now have her blog in my "happy" feed.
Thanks Susan for being a strong connection!
