There are certain articles and columns that we sell on the ASTD store each month. But I figured it made sense to open up the articles we don't sell. ASTD members can read all 2004 articles for free on the Website and then the 2003 articles we don't sell on the store More free content on the T+D Website. I've just finished fiddling with the archives on the T+D magazine Website so that there's now more free content (albeit with required registration--not my decision).

As I wrote articles for the conference daily newspaper, worked in the bookstore, and just generally talked to people, I heard great feedback. Often writing articles (or even blog entries) is like dropping words into a big black hole--we often don't know how they're received. Every once in a while we get feedback that an article was really helpful or that someone didn't like an article, but responses of both types are somewhat rare. Conference musings. So our conference is over, and it was a great success. I'm not just saying that because I work for ASTD.
