[dave-on-air]: just talking to tokyo
[James]: I'll go get my coffe back in 2
[dave-on-air]: hi bob
[elderbob]: HI Dave.
[James]: You would think this is something that Adobe would be all over as it is not just an issue that is faced by schools
[James]: They would also be able to deal with the print issue
[dave-on-air]: print issue?
[James]: HTML doesn't format for A4 too well
[dave-on-air]: why print it?
[James]: I was also thinking EBay nailed the repuatation issue some year ago
[James]: Some people will want to
[James]: Some people wont have computers for every student
[elderbob]: Is the conference call off?
[JeffLebow]: sorry ebob]
[elderbob]: Sound is poor....let me reboot
[JeffLebow]: try channel 2
[JeffLebow]: lower bitrate
[dave-on-air]: true [James]... but printing doesn't really solve the issue
[dave-on-air]: not a big cost differential printing-textbook
[elderbob]: Much better.
[DougSymington]: dave--discussions need to be archived prior to deletion
[DougSymington]: the ones associated with wiki dev. that is
[DougSymington]: of how the def comes into being
[JeffLebow]: [James], you're up
[dave-on-air]: [James]... turn off your webcast
[JeffLebow]: Please turn your webcast off
[DougSymington]: within the wiki itself--so when I come late to the conversation, I'd like to be able to see how "common knowledge" was reached
[dave-on-air]: i see
[DougSymington]: too funny, re turn off of stream. The 'cast nazis
[dave-on-air]: yes, we have learned over the years
[DougSymington]: believe me, as I was saying last night, I have a whole new appreciation
[DougSymington]: do they host all the edLMS courses on their own servers?
[dave-on-air]: good question
[dave-on-air]: [James] you have cut out
[James]: Sorry guys don't know what is happening here
[dave-on-air]: no worries
[dave-on-air]: thanks very much for coming [James]
[JeffLebow]: Xinha https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=1449
[DougSymington]: too true re wikis
[DougSymington]: I was telling Dave the same thing earlier this week re the interface
[DougSymington]: that was Art re Xinha, I think
[dave-on-air]: you can claim it anyway
[James]: For anyone who is implementing a wiki and wants to add WSYWYG try Tiny MCE tinymce.moxiecode.com. Open source and works with every browser I've tested
[DougSymington]: Ben was saying last week that they're using Tiny in Elgg and it is working well
[JeffLebow]: AT&T's famous slogan "Reach out and touch someone" will be replaced by "Your world, delivered." The new tagline is designed to emphasize the many facets of communication that AT&T handles, including voice over IP. Oasis' song is called "All Around the World." Blogs will also play a role in jazzing up the AT&T brand. One advertisement will include a view of Earth from space with pictures of individuals communicating, and feature the words "Blogging, delivered."
[DougSymington]: Anyone else feeling overwhelmed trying to keep up with all the incredible big-picture thinking floating around these days? It's like a hundred of the best ed.tech bloggers included "revolutionize education" as their only New Year's resolution
[DougSymington]: here's another link re wikis
[James]: Sorry about the microphone problem
[JeffLebow]: sorry we lost you [James]
[JeffLebow]: Thanks again for getting up so early to speak with us
[James]: I'm trying hold on
[James]: I can hear you
