I attended the last Inkshed to share my experiences in spreading Inkshedding to Costa Rica.  The youthful enthusiasm of my fellow students sustains me in my introduction to inkshedding, inshedders at a point where I am about to retire.  This is by way of saying that Natasha's introduction of Inkshedding through her graduate classes is most excellent.  However, being beyond the point where I wish to study an area overly long before promoting it, I actively promote inkshedding as an activity that will help in settings ranging from my own work-site [Internal Auditors] to foreign lands.   While I would admit my approach is developed after merely looking through the window rather then entering through the front door [apologies to Atwood] I think inkshedding rocks and that it deserves a hearing in as many settings as possible.  I will continue to look for opportunities to share inkshedding and I have encouraged every graduate student that I have met, that the members of the
 inkshed group [live or on-line] are incedibly knowledgable, helpful and cover a range of specialties and career patterns.  I am encouraging my colleague in Costa Rica to submit a proposal to the Inkshed planned for London and should his resources permit him to attend, there should be an interesting variant on the use of inkshedding in ESP in Costa Rica at our disposal.  All the best.  Michael Ryan - Ottawa

activity based on Inkshedding in my graduate classes, and it's been 
working very well. Students write short responses to course readings, 
bring them to class, exchange them, and inkshed on them (inkshedding 
takes several rounds), while I inkshed on all their reflections. These 
Inksheds later find their way into students' oral discussions, 
presentations, and papers. It's been very effective. In addition, 
students get so interested in the practice of inkshedding that they 
often join the listserve and attend the conference (I believe that in 
the past 5 years a few students of mine were always present at the 
conference). I actually think that the community is growing and the 
practice of inkshedding (in many forms) is being used in different contexts.
