Yikes, show # 49, while I am constantly amazed that we are still live after all this time, next week’s show will bring us to #50. For those of you who have been with us CONGRATULATIONS for making our show something memorable. If you are just joining us then welcome. I go back to a summer time quote Jose Rodriquez made about open source learning and how he got it! YOU all contribute to our show by listening, lurking and playing in the chat.
Join Jen Wagner, Sharon Peters and Cheryl Oakes with our guests Melinda Miller, the Podcasting Principal, and Kathy Sheilds, the Podcasting Kindergarten Teacher! It is a fun show, and funny show. Since I upgraded to Leopard, my Nicecast, the recording software and SKYPE , the internet telephony software are not playing well together. You will hear the dreaded echo for part of the show. It is a great show so listen all the way to the end for a surprise about Melinda.
A big shout out to Alyson and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
This week the chat contains lots of twitter names, if you are new to Women of Web 2.0 and twitter, read on and add us to your twitter list. You will be glad you did.
