19:11:02 mrsdurff -> hi angela

19:11:08 sharonp -> Did someone finally leave a voice message?

19:11:20 malikrichardson -> I personally think that connections are better than the past… 

19:11:22 aureliom08 -> Everything my colleagues have told me about VISTA is that it isn’t worth the bother

19:11:30 dave -> @aureliom08 are the connections particularly bad?

19:11:32 jan smith -> @aureliom08 grow your network.  I think though we have to keep in mind the dif between twitter deep and blog deep in terms of connections 

19:11:37 mrsdurff -> wicked decent

19:11:39 Gary -> Another comment on Windows  7 http://xkcd.com/

19:11:55 Sheila -> They were on SEEDlings this week too.

19:11:58 malikrichardson -> Some very talented tech educators still have not caught on to the Web2.0 bandwagon

19:12:00 JL -> http://learningischange.com/2009/01/05/a-list-of-tags/

19:12:00 sharonp -> if blogging is dead, could you please not tell my students till the end of the year? thanks

19:12:08 malikrichardson -> go figure

19:12:09 mrsdurff -> i will make sure i never mention this show

19:12:09 jan smith -> @aureliom08 and that is an idea from Dean Shareski, not me

19:12:21 aureliom08 -> I just started blogging a few months ago, so no funeral for blogs, please.

19:12:23 pam mcleod -> @sharonp LOL!

19:12:47 SusanEttenheim -> sorry I missed it but if blogging is dead what has taken its place?

19:12:57 jan smith -> don’t tell mykids either–it’s my masters action research, too. 

19:12:59 malikrichardson -> I know that in Charlotte, there is a cloud of fear… of anything online outside of the district…

19:13:11 sharonp -> @Susan presumably twitter replaced blogging

19:13:16 mrsdurff -> hi sarah h

19:13:17 malikrichardson -> Who said that blogging is dead?

19:13:18 aureliom08 -> delicious is great but we do need to have some conventions or somethin

19:13:19 malikrichardson -> wow

19:13:22 SusanEttenheim -> ahhh yes

19:13:25 angelamaiers -> Blogging and Twitter enhance one another

19:13:35 mrsdurff -> malik dave said that

19:13:37 JohnS -> Microsoft Dreamspark: https://www.dreamspark.com/ 

19:13:45 mrsdurff -> see, he said it again

19:13:47 malikrichardson -> wow…

19:13:51 aureliom08 -> I’m very idiosyncratic and personal in how I tag things on delicious and in my blog

19:13:58 SusanEttenheim -> yes angela I agree there were always some people who liked writing less and some more..

19:14:04 aureliom08 -> what shows?

19:14:15 mrsdurff -> dave is very opinionated

19:14:15 sarah h -> hi Mrs. Durff

19:16:17 malikrichardson -> That is like to say that podcasting is dead too…

19:16:23 mrsdurff -> like, ‘there once was a weekly show…’

19:16:28 malikrichardson -> It’s all about RSS…

19:16:32 aureliom08 -> oh no, not podcasting!!!!!!!

19:16:54 dave -> more specifically… blogging as "the killer app that will change the world and help democracy and tie your shoelaces" is dead

19:18:34 aureliom08 -> food, glorious food. Hot sausage and mustard. Oliver

19:18:34 malikrichardson -> IMHO, that would have been the death of twitter…

19:27:45 mrsdurff -> or an artcamp

19:27:45 sharonp -> I have my students helping out a school in Nepal…. will probably be sending two donated XOs to them….

19:27:47 aureliom08 -> OLPC sugar? what means that?

19:27:58 murcha -> @sharonp A teacher on classroom2 called Govinda Do you know him? He is always asking me to help him get the kids books, pencils etc

19:28:03 sharonp -> Hi Derek!

19:28:16 Jackie Gerstein -> The OLPC Sugar is the operating system

19:28:16 sharonp -> @murcha – yep same teachers

19:28:29 dwenmoth -> hey sharon – and others

19:28:30 mrsdurff -> not the knitting again

19:28:37 aureliom08 -> I still want to support program and policy that puts technology in thehands and homes of poor families.

19:28:54 mrsdurff -> KIVA

19:28:59 aureliom08 -> knitting? for real?

19:29:01 sharonp -> @aureliom08 I agree

19:29:05 murcha -> @aurelion08 So how do we do that? put tech into hands of poor overseas

19:29:17 mrsdurff -> yes dave knits

19:29:26 murcha -> So knitting is not a dead blog

19:29:33 aureliom08 -> must come up with the children of OLPC…idea is excellent..

19:29:33 mrsdurff -> not yet

19:29:47 sharonp -> @murcha am pretty sure NGOs have a large part to this

19:29:57 angelamaiers -> Alltop.com is another way to find top blogs

19:29:59 JenM -> DrupalEd: http://www.lullabot.com/audiocast/podcast-66-bill-fitzgerald-education … http://www.packtpub.com/drupal-for-education-and-e-learning/book

19:30:04 malikrichardson -> who is going overseas to implement and sustain this technology? 

19:30:17 dwenmoth -> @sharonp – I agree re NGOs – more to it than simply the hardware

19:30:19 mrsdurff -> dave? oi veh

19:30:27 sharonp -> @malikrichardson how about Teachers Without Borders?

19:30:49 mrsdurff -> malik sharon already did

19:30:52 malikrichardson -> Any missionary EdTech educators for hire out there?

19:30:53 murcha -> @malikrichardson I am taking three students to flatconference in Qatar and I know we will try and look at some of these issues.

19:31:02 mrsdurff -> she is famous

19:31:06 sharonp -> there are some amazing NGOs working in developing nations

19:31:11 JL -> http://www.jingproject.com/pro/default.asp?cmp=jpre&emc=jpre

19:31:12 malikrichardson -> Nice!

19:31:27 aureliom08 -> NGOs & some companies in other countries have good ideas…just need $$$

19:31:33 coolpoolteacher -> love it

19:31:34 malikrichardson -> I would like to do that myself…

19:31:49 aureliom08 -> pro jing>

19:31:51 mrsdurff -> some people here malik just may be in other countries

19:31:59 Gary -> Jing is great – even the non-Pro version.

19:32:02 aureliom08 -> screen capture? huh, sorry I’m a newby

19:32:10 sharonp -> applications for TWB for this summer are going out soon

19:32:11 Jackie Gerstein -> Love Jing for photo snapshots – don’t like the video capture – 

19:32:18 JL -> http://www.labnol.org/internet/how-to-embed-in-html-webpages/6365/

19:32:31 aureliom08 -> how is it better than just copy and paste?

19:32:34 Jackie Gerstein -> Screencast or cpature is taking pics of yur screen

19:32:34 sharonp -> Derek, how is the weather in New Zealand?

19:32:35 malikrichardson -> @murcha Who is sponsoring your trip with your students?

19:32:44 JohnS -> The day the music died: http://www.buffalonews.com/cityregion/story/538967.html 

19:32:52 dwenmoth -> @sharonp – weather in NZ great at the moment

19:32:54 Maureen -> @JL That is a very handy guide to embedding!

19:32:58 aureliom08 -> jing is free?

19:33:02 sarah h -> I’m a big fan of jing, and the post on my now apparently dead blog that gets the most traffic is still the jing vs camtasia post

19:33:02 mrsdurff -> aw

19:33:11 dwenmoth -> Summer – reached 42 degrees the other day – a record

19:33:17 aureliom08 -> What’s the day the music died about?

19:33:19 Jackie Gerstein -> Yes – free downloads from Jung

19:33:24 Jackie Gerstein -> Jing

19:33:29 murcha -> @malikrichardson I am paying for my airfare. The HSBC is sponsoringthe conference, accommodation, food whilst there and the girls have got some sponsorship for a kind local benefactor

19:33:37 mrsdurff -> so it wasn’t in dave

19:33:39 sharonp -> @derek wowsa, pretty cold here with lots of snow

19:33:40 Jackie Gerstein -> Jung – I wonder if that was my unconscious speaking?

19:33:41 mrsdurff -> ‘s house

19:33:42 aureliom08 -> player piano rolls? wow

19:33:42 malikrichardson -> Gotta give it to you guys for staying on task with the Steelers game on! 🙂

19:33:45 Gary -> Lasted longer than many of the new technologies!

19:33:46 jan smith -> @aureliom08 screen capture lets you take picture of what is on your screen. This is surprisingly useful

19:34:00 Jackie Gerstein -> Steelers are SOO far ahead

19:34:01 dave -> http://www.gabfire.com/backup-guide-for-bloggers/

19:34:18 aureliom08 -> @jan smith but I do it with my Windows printscreen

19:34:21 pam mcleod -> @aureliom08 I use it to show teachers how to do little software procedures

19:34:31 coolpoolteacher -> why do it if blogs are dead?

19:34:48 mrsdurff -> sounds good

19:34:51 coolpoolteacher -> :p 

19:34:51 aureliom08 -> my blog died? nobody even invited me to the wake.

19:34:57 mrsdurff -> leave the dead to rot

19:34:58 pam mcleod -> @aureliom08 yes, but you can annotate with other software!  And jing lets you do short video procedures

19:35:07 aureliom08 -> thanks pam

19:35:08 mrsdurff -> hi cyndi

19:35:13 coolpoolteacher -> mass grave?

19:35:39 Maureen -> nchsoftware has some good free screen capture stuff and good free converters too. I was looking for a convert to midi for a student the other day- itunes was giving an error- found a solution on nch (zamzar won’t do it)

19:35:43 mrsdurff -> run!

19:35:43 jan smith -> @aureliom08 yes, but this is a more elegant way to do it, can copy part of the screen, can capture video too.

19:35:52 aureliom08 -> are we on several completely different wave lengths? 

19:36:08 malikrichardson -> Anyone talking Sony TransferJet technology due to come out this year?

19:36:09 jan smith -> @aureliom08 always

19:36:10 JenM -> George S. Online Conf. of Sorts: http://aacecommunity.ning.com/ … and … http://www.aace.org/conf/spaces/

19:36:19 JL -> https://edtechtalk.net/node/3262

19:36:22 JL -> backups

19:37:57 pam mcleod -> and they are talking a lot about how to use the backchannel during conferences

19:38:07 jan smith -> @aureliom08 no this "dead" thing is more about the idea of blogging–it was the latest greatest thing, now it is common, and so some (naming no names) think it is no longer "in"

19:38:12 malikrichardson -> Impressed on the simplicity of tumblr.com…..

19:42:31 aureliom08 -> closest beings close to my keyboard are the squirrels and they’re in their trees.

19:42:59 dgoodman -> I like the pico projector

19:43:06 cuevash -> indeed peeko, it is most likely a play on the metric prefix\

19:43:13 sharonp -> I love the way these kinds of hardware are coming down in price

19:43:15 aureliom08 -> How much pico cost$$$?

19:43:25 dgoodman -> and down in size

19:46:02 JL -> http://webheadsinaction.org/

19:46:03 ssummit1 -> have you ever used " Go Animate"?

19:46:10 Maureen -> @jackie- I like xtranormal- but some of the gestures are inappropriate for kids

19:46:29 mrsdurff -> @ssummitt`1 http://www.xtranormal.com/

19:46:33 sharonp -> wow, that is super cool! 200 folks!

19:46:34 aureliom08 -> what inappropriate gestures? shooting the bird?

19:46:36 malikrichardson -> An inexpensive bulb would help for any LCD projector out there…

19:46:41 sharonp -> and the drupal didn’t break

19:46:44 Lesley Edwards -> @ssummit1 yes, it’s easy to use

19:46:54 Maureen -> Their TOS says 13+ …. yes the "up yours" gesture

19:46:56 Jackie Gerstein -> I didn’t notice Maureen – I guess they didn’t either as they are 8 to 11 years old.

19:47:33 jan smith -> The problek with go animate is there are inappro. characters. I think they are working on an ed version.

19:47:45 pam mcleod -> that is so cool! (snapter)

19:47:45 JohnS -> Greenshot: http://greenshot.sourceforge.net/ 

19:47:51 aureliom08 -> phone as scanner….WOOWOWOWOW

19:48:01 ssummit1 -> i’m sorry, i lost left session accidentlly, what was the movie making site?

19:48:07 Maureen -> @jackie I was looking to use it with my 6th graders and I already got flack from parents about internet safety videos I showed. May not be worth it for me. 

19:48:08 Jackie Gerstein -> Almost all mainstream Web 2.0 online tools have a legal age restriction of 13 or above.

19:48:48 Lesley Edwards -> Thx.  great resources 😀 

19:48:53 Jackie Gerstein -> Yikes – too bad, Maureen, as they find this stuff at home on their own.  I’d rather it in the open so we can discuss it.

19:50:37 aureliom08 -> Hey those dummies out in the sticks are just gearing up on our blogs

19:50:44 Maureen -> @jackie- yes, I’d rather use google docs without them breathing down my neck. There are other things I can use besides xtranormal. But I did talk to them and they say they are working on a solution for ed

19:50:50 sharonp -> talk about hijack

19:50:58 aureliom08 -> nuance, nuance, nuance…dead is dead

19:51:42 aureliom08 -> hello, this is theater of the absurd

19:51:43 jan smith -> Umm, what is happening—this is like the party line thing.

19:51:45 mrsdurff -> this is a bit odd

19:51:58 aureliom08 -> Waiting for GoBLog.

19:52:08 Sheila -> I don’t think he can hear you.

19:52:09 JenM -> This is soooo funny!

19:52:14 mrsdurff -> and you think i will bail you out?

19:52:15 aureliom08 -> We are a classless society.
