19:46:50  dougsymington ->  many great
sessions at nv08 @cogdog aka Alan Levine
19:47:00  dougsymington ->  ‘s 55 ways to tell
a story was
19:47:04  dougsymington ->  especially good
19:47:16  gary ->  Many Mac users here – it
appears
19:47:19  sroseman ->  I am using Safari
19:47:30  lee baber ->  Safari has been funky
for me lately
19:47:42  lee baber ->  doesnt seem to be
updating things enough
19:47:46  dougsymington ->  as was Matt
Mullenweg’s keynote
19:47:48  cyndidannerkuhn ->  Guess I should
try Camino on my Mac
19:47:50  gary ->  Using Firefox
19:47:58  lee baber ->  firefox on mac seems
best for me
19:48:01  cyndidannerkuhn ->  I am using
FireFox now too
19:48:02  dougsymington ->  nv08 and
northernvoice are tags at media sites
19:48:10  lee baber ->  funn but ie is best
for my dell with vista
19:48:14  gary ->  Hard to go  back
to Safari
19:48:22  congerjan ->  I agree… it works
better in Firefox
19:48:24  cyndidannerkuhn ->  Have a student
from China that worked for Apple and he swears by Camino
19:48:25  lee baber ->  firefox doesnt work
wortha darn on that
19:48:43  scottlo ->  here’s the littlest
puter I’ve seen recently: http://www.kohjinsha.com.sg
19:48:43  sroseman ->  Camino ..may give it a
ry
19:48:45  dougsymington ->  how does it know it
19:48:51  lee baber ->  i need to try it
more… camino on my mac.. i have it but have not used it much
19:48:53  JohnS ->  Dvorak’s column:
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2704,2227850,00.asp
19:49:01  dougsymington ->  has been stolen?
19:49:06  scottlo ->  don’t know how it stacks
up againt the eee deal
19:49:14  Alvin Trusty ->  It’s like a mail
truck… it sticks out.
19:49:22  Alvin Trusty ->  No one steals mail
trucks
19:49:35  jepcke ->  Camino is fine, but I
much prefer FireFox for my MacBook running Tiger
19:49:36  Matt_Cronin ->  I love Camino (uses
Firefox’s rendering engine Gecko), although no plugins
19:49:51  cyndidannerkuhn ->  I am runninf
Leopard
19:49:59  JohnS ->  But they still steal
priceless one-of-a-kind paintings.
19:50:19  jepcke ->  Camino is FAR superior to
Safari
19:50:33  sharonp ->  I think it depends on
cultural context – XO is better than nothing,
19:50:38  sroseman ->  Leopard is causing us
problems
19:50:54  dave ->  @sharonp… i’m really not
sure that’s true
19:51:20  cyndidannerkuhn ->  i just wnat an
iPhone, but not At & T where I live
19:51:37  sharonp ->  well I would be afraid
of ghettoization of 1:1 programmes
19:51:37  cyndidannerkuhn ->  Firefos beta for
Mac?
19:52:31  JL -> 
http://education.uregina.ca/technology/ecmp355/
19:52:33  sharonp ->  Alec, your model for
that course is really great
19:52:38  cyndidannerkuhn ->  is that a
college class for teachers?
19:52:47  cyndidannerkuhn ->  I teach
pre-service, can I join in?
19:52:49  sharonp ->  it is a grad course for
educators
19:53:03  cyndidannerkuhn ->  I teach grad
classes in Instructional tech too
19:53:17  cyndidannerkuhn ->  can we talk,
[email protected]
19:53:22  sharonp ->  Alec needs to drop the
UStream link in the chatroom here and then you can join in on Tuesday
nights
19:53:31  Matt_Cronin ->  HP is getting into
the mini laptop bandwagon
http://www.engadget.com/2008/02/20/hps-umpc-2133-to-cost-630-when-shipping-in-april/
19:53:38  Durff ->  i wonder how long the
firefox beta takes – anyone?
19:53:38  cyndidannerkuhn ->  lets hope he
sees this chat
19:53:48  JohnS ->  anyone know the status of
the classmate?
19:54:00  sharonp ->  @courosa – can you put
that Ustream link for your course here in the chat,please?
19:54:24  JohnS ->  HP is at $630 — that’s
pretty high for a low end laptop ($300-400)
19:54:36  cyndidannerkuhn ->  can you share
your link for your UStream course you are discussing?
19:55:10  sroseman -> 
http://caminobrowser.org/  ..involves no clicking
19:55:31  sroseman ->  sorry it does involve
clicking
19:55:46  cyndidannerkuhn ->  email would
work!!
19:55:49  sharonp -> 
http://educationaltechnology.ca/couros/797
19:55:52  cyndidannerkuhn ->  Yeah Moodle
19:55:53  Durff ->  it was a web cam girl alec
19:55:58  sharonp ->  That is Alec’s blog
19:56:11  sharonp ->  yay moodle!
19:56:20  Matt_Cronin ->  Moodle woot
19:56:24  cyndidannerkuhn ->  I am pushing
Moodle at my university, but I am alone in the fight, they are so
embedded in Blackboard, lots of money invested
19:56:34  lee baber ->  I am disappointed that
the Univ.I am in now is using Blackboard
19:56:38  dougsymington ->  xactly re $
19:56:42  dougsymington ->  it’s a crime
19:56:43  sharonp ->  @cyndi – yup that is
often the case…
19:57:05  scottlo ->  maybe this BB boycott
will gain momentum
19:57:18  lee baber ->  I am supporting it
19:57:18  sharonp ->  files in an CMS – old
school DE
19:57:30  courosa ->  that ecmp355 course is
the wrong one
19:57:32  scottlo ->  what if the educators
reject it and demand something different??
19:57:35  courosa ->  here is the course URL
19:57:44  courosa -> 
http://eci831.wikispaces.com
19:57:53  JL ->  http://ustream.tv/courosa
19:58:21  dougsymington ->  the persistent
archive is key as well
19:58:34  dougsymington ->  doesn’t go away at
end of course
19:58:43  cyndidannerkuhn ->  connections are
where it is at!!
19:58:56  sharonp ->  they are probably
working harder than for a regular course!
19:59:09  sharonp ->  but the learning curve
is probably that much greater
19:59:54  scottlo ->  jeff could you say a
little more about the conference you’ll be doing live online this week??
19:59:55  sharonp ->  I am not nearly as cool
as those other folks!
20:00:09  JohnS ->  Yes you are, Sharon.
20:00:41  sharonp ->  aw shucks, John….
20:00:45  scottlo ->  was that tied to NCM
(new media consortiums)??

students to be cutting edge learners

20:01:55  JL ->  for you to fail πŸ˜‰
20:02:00  JohnS ->  I heard thousands of
people are going to watch, Jen.
20:02:03  dougsymington ->  lol
20:02:14  dougsymington ->  failure’s not an
option
20:02:22  dougsymington ->  you’ll be great
20:02:31  dougsymington ->  per usual
20:02:37  scottlo ->  asocial or antisocial??
20:02:46  Durff ->  is courosa offering this
course this summer?
20:02:50  JenM ->  “the convergence of messy
and magical”
20:02:51  cyndidannerkuhn.info ->  I am using
Flash Meeting with an undergraduate class, the antisocial thing is an
issue for sure
20:02:57  sharonp ->  good question, Lias
20:02:59  sharonp ->  Lisa
20:03:06  Durff ->  Sharon
20:03:23  Durff ->  call a cab?
20:03:46  sharonp ->  It was Stephen Downes
who actually challenged me about not wanting to be social – not wanting
to be forced to work with other people
20:04:01  courosa ->  asocial probably should
have been the term.
20:04:18  Durff ->  cyndi – do you ever have a
virtual mtg with the undergrads and the teachers in the trenches?
20:04:40  sharonp ->  made me sit back and
thiink about making collaboration compulsory – bec I am such a strong
believer in social constructivism
20:05:06  Durff ->  but you are such a social
person sharon
20:05:20  cyndidannerkuhn.info ->  Haven’t
yet, but wnat to Druff
20:05:32  cyndidannerkuhn.info ->  I will let
you know
20:05:39  Durff ->  i think you should
consider it cyndi
20:05:42  cyndidannerkuhn.info ->  Yes off in
the summer, please
20:05:48  scottlo ->  here’s a case of
Langauge Lab CALL type stuff in a social web setting: http://iknow.co.jp
20:05:50  Durff ->  i rally for it alec
20:06:05  lee baber ->  hey Cooter was a
congressman..so….
20:06:08  Matt_Cronin ->  draft alec

20:07:08  lorna ->  9:00 pm EST
20:07:13  Durff ->  7pm is us
20:07:21  Durff ->  9pm is her
20:08:17  scottlo ->  can I make a quick pitch
on the way out??
20:08:17  tollie ->  re: “being social” – I’m
not so sure the issue is being social as much as it is being forced to
go on the record by posting online. Even with “anonymous” blogs, the
degree of anonymity is – questionable.
20:08:24  courosa ->  thanks everyone …
sorry to rant on and on
20:09:02  JenM ->  @courosa … good stuff!
20:09:19  gary ->  @courosa – we don’t mind
considering all the good twitter links we get from you.
