19:09:05 sharonp -> and laughing

19:09:05 Jennifer W -> hmmmm

19:09:09 sharonp -> as usual

19:09:30 sharonp -> Dave, did you offend her… again?

19:09:48 jeff -> http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm

19:09:49 dave -> :p

19:10:00 JenniferW -> hmmm I hear nothing

19:10:45 JenniferW -> all is well

19:11:01 sharonp -> okay – but does it work on mac?

19:11:05 dave -> http://wiki.henryfarrell.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

19:11:38 sharonp -> cll

19:11:39 sharonp -> l

19:11:41 sharonp -> cll

19:12:02 JenMad -> http://www.det.wa.edu.au/education/cmis/eval/curriculum/ict/index.htm

19:12:06 sharonp -> cool, not if or when or where (forgive previous)

19:12:22 sharonp -> NOT if BUT when or where…

19:12:28 dave -> yup.

19:12:36 dave -> and where

19:12:49 Brad H -> hey JehZon

19:12:49 sharonp -> what is wrong with my brain today??

19:12:59 JehZon -> Greetings. I hear music.

19:13:09 Brad H -> That’s from my neck of the woods

19:13:18 jeff -> http://www.wired.com/politics/onlinerights/news/2007/08/wiki_tracker?currentPage=all

19:13:36 Brad H -> but then a lot of things are blocked in schools here that they recommend

19:14:58 dave -> http://www.netvibes.com/

19:15:00 JenMad -> brad: Isn’t that a kicker?!

19:15:03 jeff -> http://wired.reddit.com/wikidgame/

19:15:20 Brad H -> can be

19:15:54 Jason Hando -> Hi folks

19:16:02 sharonp -> HI Jason

19:16:11 sharonp -> gotta get back to netvibes

19:16:25 sharonp -> hmmmm… have so many feeds now

19:16:33 Jason Hando -> pageflakes has also had a rework recently

19:16:35 sharonp -> competitor to igoogle even

19:16:56 JenMad -> http://www.canada.com/nationalpost/financialpost/story.html?id=4aacc5bc-265d-4161-a27f-446b07539b64&k=96630&p=2 and http://tech.yahoo.com/blogs/raskin/12061

19:17:53 JehZon -> You guys going to mention Quechup? Blech.

19:18:31 sharonp -> WOW – a Canadian article

19:18:47 sharonp -> Quechup is sneaky – avoid at all costs

19:19:06 sharonp -> I thought it might originally be from Québec

19:19:25 sharonp -> Dave was throwing out psychic vibes

19:19:45 sharonp -> I think backchanneling is absolutely valid

19:19:47 JenniferW -> so they close their laptops during when they could be taking notes??

19:19:49 JehZon -> The Laptop Herring: http://www.randsinrepose.com/archives/2007/08/31/the_laptop_herring.html

19:20:10 sharonp -> so you would prefer blank stares and passive listening?

19:20:33 sharonp -> my daughter was interviewed by Terry Freedman about backchanneling

19:20:34 Brad H -> I had a mature student teacher the other day tell me that kids should only have computers at school as a tool, not at home at all

19:20:35 jeff -> http://terraminds.com/twitter/

19:20:41 JehZon -> "All this focus on laptops as the problem is a red herring. Whether you’re running a meeting with a rampant laptop problem or sitting in a meeting where you have no role, the actual problem is that someone doesn’t understand the value of the meeting."

19:20:44 jeff -> http://twittersearch.com/search/

19:20:47 sharonp -> she articulated a very sound point about differentiated learning

19:21:24 jeff -> http://explore.twitter.com/blocks/

19:22:02 dave -> http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070824-study-students-more-wary-of-wikipedia-online-resources-than-thought.html

19:22:17 JenniferW -> I am finding NOTHING in twittersearch and who is zeitgeist — he is looking away — that is what the page says

19:22:40 dave -> http://chronicle.com/jobs/2005/07/2005070801c.htm

19:23:21 JenMad -> http://connect.educause.edu/library/abstract/TextMessagingtoImpro/44833

19:23:57 JehZon -> Shouldn’t real research be online. If it isn’t, it won’t be real for much longer.

19:24:07 dave -> 🙂

19:24:30 jeff -> http://mashable.com/2007/09/02/quechup/

19:24:36 sharonp -> Okay – my daughter’s very good friend went to his college course (computer science) last week and was told by his instructor that he is a loser because he DOES NOT have a facebook account where potential employers could check him out – I was…. bemused

19:24:52 jeff -> http://quechup.com/welcome.php

19:25:02 JenniferW -> does someone have someone walking above them on the next floor — I thought it was my house, but took my headphones off — and no one is there……besides the fact that I am on the top floor. 🙂

19:25:35 sharonp -> Quechup MUST be pronounce KETCHUP in my Québecois world

19:25:46 JehZon -> Is this only a windows thing?

19:25:46 dave -> http://whyfirefoxisblocked.com/index1.php

19:25:57 JenniferW -> don’t sign up

19:26:01 JehZon -> Does Quechup bother Macs?

19:26:12 sharonp -> Quechup would bother my mac

19:26:18 jeff -> Is that a rhetorical question?

19:26:24 JenniferW -> it bothers EVERYONE — it hijacks your address book

19:26:48 sharonp -> exactly

19:27:15 JenniferW -> Can you say that again????

19:27:24 sharonp -> this sounds like reasoning that only my former IT director would have

19:27:25 JenniferW -> how is firefox involved??

19:27:41 JenMad -> http://diberri.dyndns.org/wikipedia/html2wiki/index.html

19:27:55 JehZon -> Firefox has a plug-in that can block ads. It’s not a joke.

19:28:08 JehZon -> They think it breaks their business model.

19:28:11 JenniferW -> I am checking HOAXES

19:28:51 JenMad -> http://diberri.dyndns.org/wikipedia/html2wiki/index.html

19:28:56 jeff -> http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070829-vista-service-pack-1-details-announced-timing-beta-more.html

19:29:38 LisaParisi -> wikispaces isn’t one of the conversion choices

19:29:38 jeff -> http://www.ubuntuhq.com/

19:29:43 sharonp -> I was experimenting with mediawiki today… not sure I am very impressed

19:30:01 JenniferW -> hmmmm can’t find that it is a HOAX yet

19:30:13 dave -> http://www.cbc.ca/canada/nova-scotia/story/2007/08/24/dalhousie-facebook.html

19:30:46 sharonp -> listen, drupal can’t be as bad as open cms – which is what I am doomed to work with….

19:30:56 sharonp -> my alma mater too

19:31:03 dave -> http://dstc.nhmccd.edu/59982/

19:32:27 sharonp -> have heard of it

19:32:32 dave -> was he still there?

19:32:55 sharonp -> always gives me….. weird feelings about being tiddly…. if using it

19:50:47 JenniferW -> and you have to have a GREAT moderator if the rooom is crowded

19:51:05 JenniferW -> or it gets chaotic

19:51:37 sharonp -> something like "Will Richardson eats worms" – and I thought – where have I heard that before…???

19:52:37 JenniferW -> where have you heard that before??

19:52:40 sharonp -> $250 is peanuts

19:53:29 JenniferW -> mean it is fall??

19:53:36 sharonp -> every time I hear crickets on ETT – I think of Jeff and Dave

19:53:40 sharonp -> for some reason

19:54:03 JenniferW -> I think $250 is so small a fund for what you are providing

19:54:17 JenniferW -> that means — probably less than 25 cents per person you promote it to

19:54:30 JenMad -> sharon what are you doing for igloo day?

19:54:30 JenniferW -> how many people cross your pages every day??

19:54:38 JenMad -> http://flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/1307101480/

19:54:45 sharonp -> see…. it is creepy… but I recognize DC behaviour online… scary.

19:54:54 sharonp -> igloo day??

19:54:59 JenniferW -> if you have 25000 people per month — they are paying you 1 cent for your publicity per person

19:55:08 sharonp -> just remind me?? what day of the year is that??

19:55:11 JenniferW -> kinda sad — don’t you think??

19:55:15 JenMad -> dave said it is a major Canadian holiday tomorrow … don’t you remember?

19:55:51 sharonp -> Labour Day is igloo day

19:56:20 JenniferW -> what do you do on Igloo day??

19:56:37 sharonp -> I am in denial… mowed my front lawn today … to console myself for the loss of my daughter off to uni ….. it didn’t work! But wow, the amount of grass!!!

19:56:48 JenMad -> we (US’ers) prefer to spell it Labor Day 🙂

19:57:04 sharonp -> talk to me about igloo day in late December or January!

19:57:34 JenniferW -> my friend was set to deliver tomorrow- – but the baby came early — we were a bit disappointed that the baby wasn’t born on Labor day 🙂
