With regard to nametags, my suggestions for SLCC2008:
(1) That our names on the nametags be LARGER so that they can actually be read from a distance farther than two feet from the person;
(2) That members of the SLEducators list have something on their nametag that is easily seen that denotes their membership, i.e. a red border, yellow star...
Further, as mentioned in others' posts, there was not a place designated as a "SLEducators informal meeting area" where we could stop in to say hello. At a minimum, it would have been nice to have brought a few "SLEducators" signs to place on a couple of tables in the dining area during breakfast and lunch.
While most of my time was spent involved in music matters (and yes, I am that guy who was busking in the hallway), I did enjoy a few discussions with fellow members of this list. I would have liked to spoken with more of you but as noted above, unless you were within touching distance I couldn't even read your name--let alone the small 9 point type in the Groups area.
Finally, you should be aware that this SLEducators list is held in high regard by a number of Lindens (and others) at SLCC. It was referred to repeatedly during the panel discussion on the sustainability of live music in SL.

I don't think nametags, or nametags that differentiate is the
answer. nametags mean you run around looking for names all over the
conference, which is really a bad way to be at a conference.
concentrating people in one place for a short time so you can mingle
and mix is a much better solution. we could delete nametags
altogether after a nice mixer.
