 19:02:41  Harold ->  I think I'm listening on IceCast - working
 19:03:33  Harold ->  Icecast died - now on ustream
 19:04:15  Harold ->  youz guys & gals are experts!
 19:04:55  Harold ->  irony is OK, but don''t be too cynical, IMO
 19:06:29  Harold ->  It's hurting right now
 19:06:50  JenM ->  content or audio quality?
 19:06:54  Harold ->  audio, Jeff
 19:07:08  Harold ->  I was around for that one
 19:07:27  canugurl ->  sounds okay from here....
 19:07:31  Harold ->  Icecast kicks in when listening to ustream
 19:07:42  Harold ->  I keep getting double-speak
 19:07:43  Jennifer W ->  Happy Anniversary!!
 19:07:44  JenM ->  is that Jdub????
 19:07:50  JenM ->  yeahhhh!
 19:08:06  Jennifer W ->  Sorry --- I have been AWOL --
 19:08:26  Harold ->  I have to keep turning off one of the streams - weird
 19:09:37  Harold ->  I must say that you folks were the leaders & a great inspiration - maybe not tonight though ;)
 19:09:39  Jennifer W ->  Jen -- are you still in IL???
 19:10:18  Harold ->  #84 Rocks!
 19:11:24  JenM ->  @JW ... yes ... in Chi-town
 19:11:58  Jennifer W ->  When I watch Cake Boss -- Hoboken, I believe -- I think of you, JenM  :)
 19:12:42  Harold ->  Eliminate is a much better descriptor
 19:13:17  Paula Naugle ->  Can't hear anything what am I doing wrong?
 19:13:33  Jennifer W ->  Did you click on the USTREAM LINK??
 19:13:39  jhando ->  @Paula the Icecast worked for me
 19:13:43  Harold ->  click on one of the options on the right, Paula
 19:14:10  Paula Naugle ->  Okay got it. Thanks.
 19:17:00  Paula Naugle ->  This looks like a vodcast when you click on ustream link.
 19:17:13  jhando ->  There's now video which is innovation.
 19:17:37  Harold ->  Technology is the application of organised and scientific knowledge to solve practical problems.
 19:18:05  Jennifer W ->  I think EdTechTalk was a master of trying new things -- which sometimes worked and sometimes didn't (grins) -- but always trying new things
 19:18:07  Harold ->  I remember th eearly shows as being very interactive (despite my crappy audio quality)
 19:18:18  Bud ->  Happy anniversary, y'all.
 19:18:33  Harold ->  Hi Bud!
 19:18:34  Jennifer W ->  and using us as guinea pigs....dragging us along to try new things as well.   (esp chat rooms & video feeds)
 19:19:20  Jennifer W ->  and of course -- my all time favorite -- POST SHOW!!!   LOVE Post Show!!!
 19:20:04  jhando ->  I remember not being able to paste links into chat.... hasn't changed ;-)
 19:20:07  JenM ->  I used to say "the convergence of messy and magical" ;)
 19:20:08  Bud ->  What I always liked about the space here is that y'all do - you ship - you get audio out -
 19:20:58  Jennifer W ->  and when Jeff or Dave did the 365 experiment??   that was fun.....  
 19:21:11  jhando ->  Everyone's probably busier now with so many other technologies, talks, books, etc in this space
 19:21:20  Jennifer W ->  I liked the fact that you URGED us to fail -- but you were there to help us
 19:22:03  Jennifer W ->  and how we PUSHED things til they broke....just to see how far we could push
 19:22:34  Bud ->  I still miss the guests.  Y'all're good interviewers.
 19:22:44  Paula Naugle ->  Went to first tech conference - NECC in New Orleans in 2004. Didn't know what they were talking about - podcasts, wikis, blogs, Nings, Moodle, etc. Come away determined to learn. Boy that seems so long ago.
 19:23:29  Jennifer W ->  and another memory -- Jen's husband waiting in the closet til the show was over.   :)  
 19:23:46  JenM ->  @JW .. oh, yay!
 19:24:27  Bud ->  But, Jeff - you're good at it.
 19:24:35  Jennifer W ->  where is John Schinker???
 19:24:45  Bud ->  aw, heck
 19:24:50  Bud ->  I was responding to him
 19:24:55  Bud ->   you are a fine team.
 19:24:58  JenM ->  ... at a family picnic ... he should be joining us soon
 19:25:05  Bud ->  I;'ll explicitly mention Jen and Dave and Jeff. Bravo, TEAM.
 19:25:21  Jennifer W ->  you were our twitter before twitter
 19:26:00  Bud ->  You know, maybe interviews aren't so good
 19:27:53  JenM ->  http://www.delicious.com/edtechtalk
 19:28:14  Harold ->  LMS = snake oil
 19:28:30  Paula Naugle ->  I use Edmodo as my LMS with 4th graders.
 19:28:41  Harold ->  yes, Dave - WP is a better option than an LMS
 19:29:17  Cathy E ->  Don't forget that many of us in the US don't have bandwidth either
 19:29:20  Harold ->  Oligopolies rule Canada :(
 19:29:45  Jennifer W ->  Wordpress began in 2003
 19:29:56  Jennifer W ->  so says their website
 19:30:19  dawn ->  I wonder about edublog verson. Does it allow students to have their own blog?
 19:30:37  Harold ->  but blogger is not open source - own your data
 19:31:03  jhando ->  Unfortunately we are driven by assessments here so Moodle is still best option ie. gradebooks etc
 19:31:12  Jennifer W ->  DRUPAL --- what a headache -- but what a triumph.   Learned a lot but lost a lot of hair
 19:31:12  Harold ->  even Microsoft shifted their Live accounts to WordPress
 19:31:34  Harold ->  Drupal is great (for industrial strength applications)
 19:31:59  Jennifer W ->  being able to tear drupal apart made me not hesitate at all with tweaking my word press (self-hosted) blog
 19:32:01  JenM ->  http://jmaddrell.blogspot.com/
 19:33:49  Jennifer W ->  crum--- where is Durff and Doug??   gonna tweet this out again
 19:34:49  Paula Naugle ->  Durff's at the beach.
 19:35:21  Jennifer W ->  @Paula -- thinking of past shows.....where are all the hosts?  
 19:36:32  Jennifer W ->  for 3+ years of my life -- this was my Home on the Web
 19:36:33  Harold ->  social - on the institution's terms - is not social
 19:37:18  Bud ->  Oh, Furl.  How I miss thee.
 19:37:29  Paula Naugle ->  I've only attended a half dozen times. Need to add this to Google calendar so I remember to come.
 19:37:30  Harold ->  I remember when Furl was my social bookmark tool too :) went south just like Magnolia
 19:37:33  Bud ->  It's true.
 19:37:56  jhando ->  Is this social?
 19:38:15  Harold ->  yes, it's still Bud's message on Skype ;)
 19:38:43  JenM ->  http://jmaddrell.blogspot.com/2005_10_01_archive.html
 19:38:51  Bud ->  Why mess with what works?
 19:39:57  Harold ->  CONTROL
 19:40:07  jhando ->  Rubrics are for progress and improvement, gradual improvement
 19:41:03  dave ->  http://wikieducator.org/User:Davecormier/Books/Educational_Technology_an...
 19:41:06  jhando ->  Same things happens in workplace ie. appraisals
 19:41:25  Jennifer W ->  If a teacher only judges the project based on a rubric, I believe they will miss a lot about the projects.   Rubrics (to me) limit creativity
 19:41:47  Jennifer W ->  limit uniqueness perhaps would be a better word choice
 19:42:36  jhando ->  Rubric should be written by students
 19:43:07  jhando ->  It's like goal setting in learning process
 19:43:17  Paula Naugle ->  I find I want to change project rubric after proects are turned in because I see things I didn't include on original rbric.
 19:43:36  jhando ->  @Paula v true
 19:45:06  jhando ->  Schools are addicted to measuring unfort
 19:45:34  jhando ->  Or is it parents addicted to it? Or governments?
 19:45:35  Paula Naugle ->  Rubrics seem like easy way out when grading, definitely need to include a box which require instructor to add comments.
 19:46:04  jhando ->  Students always tell me that comments are the most important feedback
 19:46:06  jeff ->  we should start our post show soon
 19:46:24  Cathy E ->  What about ISTE?  Anybody going?
 19:46:38  Harold ->  "am I some kind of idiot?" (I refuse to answer that)
 19:46:52  JenM ->  @harold ... he he he
 19:47:09  jhando ->  Question: what's the largest number of ppl in EdTechTalk chat over 6 years?
 19:47:16  Jennifer W ->  No -- to ISTE
 19:47:30  Paula Naugle ->  I'm going to ISTE.
 19:48:12  dave ->  in the chat? maybe close to 100 once...
 19:48:16  Jennifer W ->  It is WAY too early for POST SHOW
 19:48:56  Jennifer W ->  I think the night WOW2 had the Posse group on, we were close to 100.
 19:49:13  jhando ->  100 and nothing broke?
 19:49:25  Jennifer W ->  we broke skype before we broke EdTechTalk
 19:49:44  Paula Naugle ->  Hi Maria.
 19:49:47  jhando ->  there was a time when skype broke often
 19:49:52  MariaK ->  hello
 19:50:00  jhando ->  now the interface (at least on Mac) is broken ;-)
 19:50:12  jhando ->  hi MariaK
 19:50:20  jhando ->  where are u from?
 19:50:37  MariaK ->  Thought i'd catch the last 10 minutes instead of listening later!
 19:51:12  Bud ->  keep up the good work, ysll.  Especially Dave. Because I'd hate for him to feel left out.
 19:51:44  Cathy E ->  My staff gets much more PD online
 19:52:09  JenM ->  An attempt to describe informal PD via twitter: http://bigthink.com/ideas/38698
 19:52:10  Jennifer W ->  My staff needs to start considering PD online
 19:52:50  Jennifer W ->  JenM -- I was #1 on that list....   it was nice of Scott to include me.   :)
 19:52:57  Paula Naugle ->  I'm presenting an all day workkshop for 25 tech coordinators on Wed. I'm very nervous.
 19:53:09  jhando ->  Accreditation is probably number one factor for choosing pd events
 19:53:28  jhando ->  @Paula what's the focus of preso?
 19:53:37  Cathy E ->  We are using the chat in Google Apps for PD
 19:53:53  Harold ->  those who own accreditation, control the system
 19:53:56  Cathy E ->  very informal - but it works
 19:53:59  Jennifer W ->  I list WOW2 on my resume
 19:54:01  Paula Naugle ->  Beleive it or not they asked me to present Web 2.0 tools.
 19:54:16  MariaK ->  It also depends on the school district. Some districts accept a variety of PD - not just formal. We use a portfolio based PD reporting so my reflections about how I learn and how it affects my practice can include EdTechTalk.
 19:54:22  jhando ->  @Paula good luck with it
 19:54:32  JenM ->  Oh, yeah ... http://twitter.com/#!/jenwagner/status/76105131342561280
 19:54:42  dawn ->  @MariaK  nice
 19:54:48  Paula Naugle ->  @jhando Thank you.
 19:55:59  jhando ->  Why wld a teacher care if they already are trained and earning their dough?
 19:56:10  Jennifer W ->  That post was very easy to knee-jerk to if you did not read it carefully.  He seemed to be knocking neighbor fence conversations but he really was not
 19:56:11  Paula Naugle ->  Is there any info on number of admins, principals, teachers, who blog?
 19:56:28  Jennifer W ->  NO NO NO -- not post show???
 19:56:31  Jennifer W ->  its too early
 19:56:46  jhando ->  I wld estimate there's 1-2 in each school blogging, if that
 19:56:47  Jennifer W ->  HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!
 19:56:59  Cathy E ->  Ya'll ROCK!!!
 19:57:09  Jennifer W ->  OH, we are starting a new show in September -- but will talk with you later
 19:57:11  Paula Naugle ->  Happy Anniversary to you.
 19:57:32  Jennifer W ->  you will be around in September???
 19:57:39  MariaK ->  So glad i could be here to say Happy Anniversary. meet most of my best friends here!
 19:57:42  Jennifer W ->  and remember the 24 hour sessions???
 19:57:42  jhando ->  Good on everyone for sticking with it for 6 yrs
 19:58:33  Harold ->  nothing in life is permanent
 19:58:43  Jennifer W ->  understood but sadness
 19:59:07  Paula Naugle ->  You have been responsible for helping so many to learn. Thank you.
 20:01:21  dawn ->  wow good for you
 20:02:01  Jennifer W ->  EdTechTalk gave me confidence to talk out my thoughts.....so THANK YOU for all you have offered generously to us all.
 20:02:30  dave ->  he's just about to say that he misses talking to us
 20:02:32  dave ->  anytime now
 20:02:45  dave ->  he's going to say "talking to you guys is something i really mis"
 20:03:28  JenM ->  @jw ... great point ... "confidence to talk" ... and I'll add ... ability to summarize a whole bunch of stuff you are seeing out there in the world
 20:04:15  Paul Ellerman ->  WOW its been 6 years!   Holy cow!!

 20:05:31  MariaK ->  EdTechTalk help me begin my new life - connected learning, connected classroom, connected person. Gave me the energy to keep going. A new beginning. My 6 year anniversary of listening is July.
 20:05:40  Paul Ellerman ->  I remember those old shows....
