Testimonials and more information:
A year ago, the organizers of K12 Online expected that it would be attended by 100 or so teachers wanting to talk about web 2.0 and education. Two weeks, and 54,000 web hits later, it was obvious that this conference was going to take off.

Some testimonial quotes from 2006:

"I am currently teaching an online graduate technology course at Wichita State University and I invited my whole class to attend the K-12 Online Conference. I’ve never been able to take a class on a two-week field trip–ever. Imagine the logistics, funding, and other issues I would normally have in providing this kind of experience and relevant information for my students – the web provides a great information and discussion tool!!

"Thank you to all the presenters. this was beyond excellent. It was top notch. I’ve been sent to all sorts of technology conferences and I have NEVER EVER learned as much. I’m sad it’s over. But I think I will come back and back to this resource….it’s a treasure chest. I only wish there was an ongoing community of folks that wanted to hang out together and talk about this stuff all the time. Help each. Lean on each other. inspire each other."
