A Webhead!!

A Webhead with a lovely Scottish accent - lovely intro too!

Welcome Robert

Nice to meet you as well, Robert! I am curious how a Scot finds his way to Missoula, MT! Perhaps the subject of a future webcast ;-)

My name is Matt Montagne and I participated in the Webcast Academy during the winter of 2008. I'll be checking in periodically to see how you all are doing in the class of 4.1.

Cheers!

Hi Matt

Long story short--I met my future wife, a Big Sky Eagle, when we were both teaching English in Japan. The rest, as they say, is a very happy history. I've never been down to California, but I believe Palo Alto is tech central: Hewlett Packard, Facebook, etc. Do you work in that field? You don't happen to be a Mac person, do you? I think I can get two ends of a conversation recorded with a PC, but would like to know more about the Mac and Audio Hijack technique. I go have a little hunt in the meantime...Enjoying exploring these tools.

Best,

Robert

belated realization

... all this multitasking must be taking its toll on my brain, because I think it's taken me all this time to finally realize that we've met f2f, haven't we Robert? I recall tossing back a few pints with a Scottish webhead living in Montana at TESOL2008 in NYC. There can't be too many of those out there. Sorry for not making the connection sooner. Sadly, I seem more likely to remember audio settings than names :)

Flying under the radar

I think it was much easier for me to recognize people in 2008 because I hadn't been so active at that time. Bee Dieu succintly put it at a Webhead dinner I turned up at: 'Who are you?' It's been great to have met so many of the Webheads. Meeting people in person adds a new dimension to relationships. You are back in Korea now? I taught ESL in Gimcheon-just outside of Daegu in 2001--good times and great food. I've been back once since then, and I am always reminded what a wonderfully hospitable bunch of people they are. I miss the under floor heating in the winter as well.
