Looking Forward to the NCTM Conference in 2012 (or Maybe Not)

Enlargement of circled area
I was excited to learn that the next annual NCTM Meeting in Philadelphia would have a technology theme. Then I saw an advertisement for the 2012 conference. Technology theme? You have to look past NCTM's other priorities to see something referring to technology. Major disappointment. Though I am not surprised. The lack of response (so far) to my email to the program chair Gladis Kersaint (see below) doesn't surprise me either. Now I'm looking towards Denver 2013 for some technology breakthroughs. I heard Jeff Shih (the conference chair) might want to do something with technology that will make people take notice. I will find out.
