19:05:11 JenM -> Alice … it was BEAUTIFULLLLLLL
19:05:51 Alice Mercer -> Jen, I’m sure, but when I listened the audio was hinkey, and the audio on the clips on ETT was not great.
19:06:15 dave -> http://www.businessweek.com/technology/content/sep2007/tc20070923_960941.htm
19:06:26 JenniferWagner -> I thought USTREAM — for it being new to me — was GREAT.
19:06:32 Alice Mercer -> Hmm, Zotero is similar to Diigo?
19:06:38 JenniferWagner -> there were some glitches — but just seeing it LIVE — with real people — was so wonderful
19:06:46 JohnSchinker -> http://www.news.com/Buy-a-laptop-for-a-child,-get-another-laptop-free/2100-1005_3-6209594.html?tag=nefd.top

19:08:06 JohnSchinker -> If you have internet access, you can order food for delivery.

19:21:54 Alice Mercer -> Dave, I’ll try to find links to drop in
19:22:18 Jennifer Wagner -> Look what Stephen said about PEI — The panel was a highlight, no question. I got my own video recording of it, and of course the conference organizers have their own.The quality of the discussion was first-rate throughout the event & I got to chat a lot and practice a lot and learn a lot. Dave and Jeff put on a cutting edge event, and did it for $20 a person – with pizza and sandwiches. Outstanding.
19:22:34 Alice Mercer -> http://borderland.northernattitude.org/category/science/
