Cyndee Perkins and Deb Evans attended the eleventh annual Dust or Magic Institute.

The story of Dust or Magic: The title "Dust or Magic" came with the blessing of Bob Hughes, author of the book Dust or Magic: Secrets of Successful Multimedia Design. In the forward of his book, Bob referenced the poem "An idea can turn from dust to magic, depending on the talent that rubs against it."

The first Dust or Magic was held in January 2002. Participants include some of the top minds in the interactive space. This year, Don Rawitsch (Oregon Trail Co-Inventor), Craig Hickman (Creator, KidPix), Ann McCormick (Co-Founder, The Learning Company) and Mark Schlicting (Creator, The Living Books) are just a few of the presenters.

Cyndee and Deb will share their notes from the event with you. Tune in to learn if they believe it was full of Dust or Magic!
