[scott] Anyway to get Larry King in as a guest?

[elderbob] Very new technology.

[Dennis] Hi, Scott.

[elderbob] Running through Sunny Swamps…..no….

[sus_] George Siemens once said, to explain RSS is like trying to explain sex, you don’t understand until you try it!

[elderbob] Really Slick Stuff?

[Dennis] Interesting, Sus!

[sus_] I liked the analogy

[sroseman] Google Alerts..is that similar to RSS feeds

[Dennis] I use bloglines–but have just begun.

[Dennis] I use Firefox, but not its aggregator.

[sus_] does the site need to have a spceial feed for Firefox?

[Dennis] I like Opera, too–and also OmniWeb.

[elderbob] Ya cant help but wonder what Google would say about their stats.

[Dennis] Thanks for the link, Jeff.

leeb has joined the chat.

[leeb] I have firefox

[Dennis] Hi, Banjo Lady!

[leeb] Hello… ding a linga how are you strum strum…

[leeb] No, it really sounds better than that.

[sus_] I agree, that way of generating money from research papers is like an industry

[Dennis] fi-fi-fi-fi-fi-een-een-een-een-een. (This is how it sounds on a balalaika.)

[sus_] and, I have seen some university editors who have made RSS sites wherer people will be directed to their papers (for money), I t

[Dennis] Kudos, indeed. This will go a long way toward establishing credibility of online material.

[Dennis] Of coursew, it’ll take time.

[elderbob] Are you using the Beta, Dave?

[Dennis] Oops: Of course.

[JeffLebow] http://jarche.com/

[Dennis] Incredible . . . about having word processing, etc. online instead of having to depend on Microsoft (and others).

[sus_] yes we do hear a sweet little kid, not too noisy!

[Dennis] Interesting point about Microsoft.

[Dennis] It is quite neat (about Microsoft).

[sus_] what can you do with xBoxes, anyway?

[sus_] yes

[sus_] Elluminate works FINE on a mac

[Dennis] I agree, Sus.

[jeff_in_ann_arbor] reader’s theatre with multiple voices cool

[Dennis] Way cool.

[Jo] I like that idea, soap opera

[leeb] I use audio all the time for my class instructions..

[Dennis] I like it, too.

[Dennis] Reminds me of the popularity that ESL comic books used to have–in, say, Japan.

[leeb] podpal

[Jo] And the reader’s theatre, too

[Dennis] Thanks for the URL for Dave’s edblog.

jeff_in_ann_arbor has left the chat.

[Dennis] Something was mentioned about a password.

[Dennis] Some of my students are doing an international exchange blog. It’s just started, but it has promise.

[JeffLebow] I think you only need a password to edit http://australianedubloggers.pbwiki.com/

[Dennis] Ah, I see. Thanks, Jeff. I got the Australianedubloggers URL through Google.

scott has joined the chat.

[Dennis] The business about establishing one’s personal voice is critically important.

[Dennis] I haven’t been too critical about grammar and style in my international exchange blog. I think participation is more important–

[Dennis] i.e., more important to “establish their voices.”

[Guest_478] granted… i’m moving towards more editing as time goes on

[elderbob] Hi Scott.

[Dennis] 478: Sounds reasonable.

[sroseman] grade 7/8 students have enjoyed reviewing game sites

[Dennis] Thanks, Jo. Very interesting work!

[sroseman] RSS for Dummies

[sus] clap clap clap, hello Vance!!

[sus] I hear the old scuba diver from Abu Dhabi!

[leeb] skubaskype?

[Dennis] Hi, Vance.

[leeb] hoora..Vance

[Dennis] RSS for Dummies: good idea.

[Dennis] Or maybe Really Simple Syndication: A Really Simple Explanation

[Dennis] And if Tapped In is cautious, then it’s fairly safe to assume that many school districts would be even MORE cautious, no?

[Dennis] So it’s a matter of what elements a school would incorporate?

sroseman has left the chat.

[Dennis] So the security depends on the back end of what would enable RSS?

sus has left the chat.

sus has joined the chat.

[Dennis] There are all kinds of Google references to xml RSS security .

[JeffLebow] Any links? Or would you like to Skype in Dennis?

[Dennis] Some suggest that encryption (on the part of the fed site) is the way to handle this.

[JeffLebow] Long time, no skype.

[Dennis] “Long time, no skype” who?

[JeffLebow] Long time I have skyped with you Dennis πŸ™

[Dennis] True.

[Dennis] The reason is simple.

[Dennis] I have to watch the noise while WB is on.

[Dennis] Because some folks are still sleeping here.

[Dennis] That’s the only reason–but it’s a big one.

[Dennis] Sorry.

[JeffLebow] ah, I forget how early you get up for this

[Dennis] Yes, it’s 8:44 in the morning here in Phoenix.

[Dennis] The sleeping folks are night owls and could get up at any time, but they need to get up when THEY want to.

[Dennis] Not when I wake them up by talking.

[Dennis] Yes, very well said.

[Dennis] Yes, do them exactly like this: xml RSS security

[Dennis] There are a number of references from Microsoft in the items in the Google search. I didn’t check them.

[scott] *meow*

scott has left the chat.

helenk has joined the chat.

[helenk] hello everyone

[Dennis] So maybe the fears are groundless? Fear of the unknown? Politics? Corporatethink? Or ARE the fears basically groundless?

[Dennis] Dem is de questions, no?

[JeffLebow] Hello Helen

[Dennis] Or some of the more important ones.

[Dennis] Hi, Helen.

[Dennis] Good point, EB. But IT people who have a vested interest in another course delivery platform are often resistant to offer moodle

[Dennis] as an alternative

[JeffLebow] Are you listening to the webcast

[Dennis] Yes.

[Dennis] (I’m listening to the webcast.)

helenk has left the chat.

helenk has joined the chat.
