[Dennis] fi-fi-fi-fi-fi-een-een-een-een-een. (This is how it sounds on a balalaika.)
[sus_] and, I have seen some university editors who have made RSS sites wherer people will be directed to their papers (for money), I t
[Dennis] Kudos, indeed. This will go a long way toward establishing credibility of online material.
[Dennis] Of coursew, it'll take time.
[elderbob] Are you using the Beta, Dave?
[Dennis] Oops: Of course.
[JeffLebow] http://jarche.com/

[Dennis] Something was mentioned about a password.
[Dennis] Some of my students are doing an international exchange blog. It's just started, but it has promise.
[JeffLebow] I think you only need a password to edit http://australianedubloggers.pbwiki.com/
[Dennis] Ah, I see. Thanks, Jeff. I got the Australianedubloggers URL through Google.
scott has joined the chat.
[Dennis] The business about establishing one's personal voice is critically important.
[Dennis] I haven't been too critical about grammar and style in my international exchange blog. I think participation is more important--
[Dennis] i.e., more important to "establish their voices."
[Guest_478] granted... i'm moving towards more editing as time goes on
[elderbob] Hi Scott.
[Dennis] 478: Sounds reasonable.

[sus] I hear the old scuba diver from Abu Dhabi!
[leeb] skubaskype?
[Dennis] Hi, Vance.
[leeb] hoora..Vance
[Dennis] RSS for Dummies: good idea.
[Dennis] Or maybe Really Simple Syndication: A Really Simple Explanation
[Dennis] And if Tapped In is cautious, then it's fairly safe to assume that many school districts would be even MORE cautious, no?
[Dennis] So it's a matter of what elements a school would incorporate?
sroseman has left the chat.
[Dennis] So the security depends on the back end of what would enable RSS?
sus has left the chat.
sus has joined the chat.
[Dennis] There are all kinds of Google references to xml RSS security .
[JeffLebow] Any links? Or would you like to Skype in Dennis?
[Dennis] Some suggest that encryption (on the part of the fed site) is the way to handle this.
[JeffLebow] Long time, no skype.
[Dennis] "Long time, no skype" who?
[JeffLebow] Long time I have skyped with you Dennis :(
[Dennis] True.
[Dennis] The reason is simple.
[Dennis] I have to watch the noise while WB is on.
[Dennis] Because some folks are still sleeping here.
[Dennis] That's the only reason--but it's a big one.
[Dennis] Sorry.
[JeffLebow] ah, I forget how early you get up for this
[Dennis] Yes, it's 8:44 in the morning here in Phoenix.
[Dennis] The sleeping folks are night owls and could get up at any time, but they need to get up when THEY want to.
[Dennis] Not when I wake them up by talking.
[Dennis] Yes, very well said.
[Dennis] Yes, do them exactly like this: xml RSS security
[Dennis] There are a number of references from Microsoft in the items in the Google search. I didn't check them.
[scott] *meow*
scott has left the chat.
helenk has joined the chat.
[helenk] hello everyone
[Dennis] So maybe the fears are groundless? Fear of the unknown? Politics? Corporatethink? Or ARE the fears basically groundless?
[Dennis] Dem is de questions, no?
[JeffLebow] Hello Helen
[Dennis] Or some of the more important ones.
[Dennis] Hi, Helen.
[Dennis] Good point, EB. But IT people who have a vested interest in another course delivery platform are often resistant to offer moodle
[Dennis] as an alternative
[JeffLebow] Are you listening to the webcast
[Dennis] Yes.
[Dennis] (I'm listening to the webcast.)
