Words of NECC

I’ve been in San Antonio for almost a two hours now, mostly walking out to stock up on diet pepsis for my room, and watching CNN (pretty rare for me).  In a few minutes, I’ll go out to a place called Boudros’ for dinner with a bunch of folks — don’t recall who — hope I’ll recognize them.

Anyway, while paying half of my attention on the news, and a quarter of it on the clock, I’ve been doing some searches of the NECC program for a few key words that occurred to me.  Here is a listing of those words and the number of conference sessions or other events that included them.  They are not listed in any particular order, just as I thought of them.

I also found the PDF of the final entire program and ran the session through TagCrowd.  Here are the 75 most used words in the sessions, in a tag cloud.
