19:11:02 mrsdurff -> hi angela

19:11:08 sharonp -> Did someone finally leave a voice message?

19:11:20 malikrichardson -> I personally think that connections are better than the past... 

19:11:22 aureliom08 -> Everything my colleagues have told me about VISTA is that it isn't worth the bother

19:11:30 dave -> @aureliom08 are the connections particularly bad?

19:11:32 jan smith -> @aureliom08 grow your network.  I think though we have to keep in mind the dif between twitter deep and blog deep in terms of connections 

19:11:37 mrsdurff -> wicked decent

19:11:39 Gary -> Another comment on Windows  7 http://xkcd.com/

19:11:55 Sheila -> They were on SEEDlings this week too.

19:11:58 malikrichardson -> Some very talented tech educators still have not caught on to the Web2.0 bandwagon

19:12:00 JL -> http://learningischange.com/2009/01/05/a-list-of-tags/

19:12:00 sharonp -> if blogging is dead, could you please not tell my students till the end of the year? thanks

19:12:08 malikrichardson -> go figure

19:12:09 jan smith -> @aureliom08 and that is an idea from Dean Shareski, not me

19:12:21 aureliom08 -> I just started blogging a few months ago, so no funeral for blogs, please.

19:12:23 pam mcleod -> @sharonp LOL!

19:12:47 SusanEttenheim -> sorry I missed it but if blogging is dead what has taken its place?

19:12:57 jan smith -> don't tell mykids either--it's my masters action research, too. 

19:12:59 malikrichardson -> I know that in Charlotte, there is a cloud of fear... of anything online outside of the district...

19:13:11 sharonp -> @Susan presumably twitter replaced blogging

19:13:16 mrsdurff -> hi sarah h

19:13:17 malikrichardson -> Who said that blogging is dead?

19:13:18 aureliom08 -> delicious is great but we do need to have some conventions or somethin

19:13:45 mrsdurff -> see, he said it again

19:13:47 malikrichardson -> wow...

19:13:51 aureliom08 -> I'm very idiosyncratic and personal in how I tag things on delicious and in my blog

19:13:58 SusanEttenheim -> yes angela I agree there were always some people who liked writing less and some more..

19:14:04 aureliom08 -> what shows?

19:14:15 mrsdurff -> dave is very opinionated

19:16:11 JohnS -> Dave's explanation of the blogging is dead statement: http://davecormier.com/edblog/2008/12/20/top-10-edtech-news-etc-thingers...

19:16:17 malikrichardson -> That is like to say that podcasting is dead too...

19:16:23 mrsdurff -> like, 'there once was a weekly show...'

19:16:28 malikrichardson -> It's all about RSS...

19:16:32 aureliom08 -> oh no, not podcasting!!!!!!!

19:16:54 dave -> more specifically... blogging as "the killer app that will change the world and help democracy and tie your shoelaces" is dead

19:18:34 aureliom08 -> food, glorious food. Hot sausage and mustard. Oliver

19:28:03 sharonp -> Hi Derek!

19:28:16 sharonp -> @murcha - yep same teachers

19:28:29 dwenmoth -> hey sharon - and others

19:28:30 mrsdurff -> not the knitting again

19:28:37 aureliom08 -> I still want to support program and policy that puts technology in thehands and homes of poor families.

19:28:54 mrsdurff -> KIVA

19:28:59 aureliom08 -> knitting? for real?

19:29:01 sharonp -> @aureliom08 I agree

19:29:05 murcha -> @aurelion08 So how do we do that? put tech into hands of poor overseas

19:29:17 mrsdurff -> yes dave knits

19:29:26 murcha -> So knitting is not a dead blog

19:29:33 aureliom08 -> must come up with the children of OLPC...idea is excellent..

19:29:33 mrsdurff -> not yet

19:29:47 sharonp -> @murcha am pretty sure NGOs have a large part to this

19:29:57 angelamaiers -> Alltop.com is another way to find top blogs

19:29:59 JenM -> DrupalEd: http://www.lullabot.com/audiocast/podcast-66-bill-fitzgerald-education ... http://www.packtpub.com/drupal-for-education-and-e-learning/book

19:30:04 malikrichardson -> who is going overseas to implement and sustain this technology? 

19:30:17 dwenmoth -> @sharonp - I agree re NGOs - more to it than simply the hardware

19:30:19 mrsdurff -> dave? oi veh

19:30:27 sharonp -> @malikrichardson how about Teachers Without Borders?

19:30:49 mrsdurff -> malik sharon already did

19:30:52 malikrichardson -> Any missionary EdTech educators for hire out there?

19:30:53 murcha -> @malikrichardson I am taking three students to flatconference in Qatar and I know we will try and look at some of these issues.

19:31:02 mrsdurff -> she is famous

19:31:06 sharonp -> there are some amazing NGOs working in developing nations

19:31:11 JL -> http://www.jingproject.com/pro/default.asp?cmp=jpre&emc=jpre

19:31:12 malikrichardson -> Nice!

19:31:27 aureliom08 -> NGOs & some companies in other countries have good ideas...just need $$$

19:31:33 coolpoolteacher -> love it

19:31:49 aureliom08 -> pro jing>

19:31:51 mrsdurff -> some people here malik just may be in other countries

19:31:59 Gary -> Jing is great - even the non-Pro version.

19:32:02 aureliom08 -> screen capture? huh, sorry I'm a newby

19:32:10 sharonp -> applications for TWB for this summer are going out soon

19:32:11 Jackie Gerstein -> Love Jing for photo snapshots - don't like the video capture - 

19:32:18 JL -> http://www.labnol.org/internet/how-to-embed-in-html-webpages/6365/

19:32:31 aureliom08 -> how is it better than just copy and paste?

19:32:34 Jackie Gerstein -> Screencast or cpature is taking pics of yur screen

19:32:34 sharonp -> Derek, how is the weather in New Zealand?

19:32:35 malikrichardson -> @murcha Who is sponsoring your trip with your students?

19:32:44 JohnS -> The day the music died: http://www.buffalonews.com/cityregion/story/538967.html 

19:32:52 dwenmoth -> @sharonp - weather in NZ great at the moment

19:32:54 Maureen -> @JL That is a very handy guide to embedding!

19:32:58 aureliom08 -> jing is free?

19:33:02 sarah h -> I'm a big fan of jing, and the post on my now apparently dead blog that gets the most traffic is still the jing vs camtasia post

19:33:02 mrsdurff -> aw

19:33:11 dwenmoth -> Summer - reached 42 degrees the other day - a record

19:33:17 aureliom08 -> What's the day the music died about?

19:33:19 Jackie Gerstein -> Yes - free downloads from Jung

19:33:24 Jackie Gerstein -> Jing

19:33:29 murcha -> @malikrichardson I am paying for my airfare. The HSBC is sponsoringthe conference, accommodation, food whilst there and the girls have got some sponsorship for a kind local benefactor

19:33:37 mrsdurff -> so it wasn't in dave

19:33:39 sharonp -> @derek wowsa, pretty cold here with lots of snow

19:33:40 Jackie Gerstein -> Jung - I wonder if that was my unconscious speaking?

19:33:41 mrsdurff -> 's house

19:33:42 aureliom08 -> player piano rolls? wow

19:33:42 malikrichardson -> Gotta give it to you guys for staying on task with the Steelers game on! :-)

19:33:45 Gary -> Lasted longer than many of the new technologies!

19:33:46 jan smith -> @aureliom08 screen capture lets you take picture of what is on your screen. This is surprisingly useful

19:34:00 Jackie Gerstein -> Steelers are SOO far ahead

19:34:01 dave -> http://www.gabfire.com/backup-guide-for-bloggers/

19:34:18 aureliom08 -> @jan smith but I do it with my Windows printscreen

19:34:21 pam mcleod -> @aureliom08 I use it to show teachers how to do little software procedures

19:34:31 coolpoolteacher -> why do it if blogs are dead?

19:34:48 mrsdurff -> sounds good

19:34:51 coolpoolteacher -> :p 

19:34:51 aureliom08 -> my blog died? nobody even invited me to the wake.

19:34:57 mrsdurff -> leave the dead to rot

19:34:58 pam mcleod -> @aureliom08 yes, but you can annotate with other software!  And jing lets you do short video procedures

19:35:07 aureliom08 -> thanks pam

19:35:08 mrsdurff -> hi cyndi

19:35:13 coolpoolteacher -> mass grave?

19:35:39 Maureen -> nchsoftware has some good free screen capture stuff and good free converters too. I was looking for a convert to midi for a student the other day- itunes was giving an error- found a solution on nch (zamzar won't do it)

19:35:43 mrsdurff -> run!

19:35:43 jan smith -> @aureliom08 yes, but this is a more elegant way to do it, can copy part of the screen, can capture video too.

19:35:52 aureliom08 -> are we on several completely different wave lengths? 

19:36:08 malikrichardson -> Anyone talking Sony TransferJet technology due to come out this year?

19:36:09 jan smith -> @aureliom08 always

19:36:10 JenM -> George S. Online Conf. of Sorts: http://aacecommunity.ning.com/ ... and ... http://www.aace.org/conf/spaces/

19:38:07 jan smith -> @aureliom08 no this "dead" thing is more about the idea of blogging--it was the latest greatest thing, now it is common, and so some (naming no names) think it is no longer "in"

19:42:59 dgoodman -> I like the pico projector

19:43:06 cuevash -> indeed peeko, it is most likely a play on the metric prefix\

19:43:13 sharonp -> I love the way these kinds of hardware are coming down in price

19:43:15 aureliom08 -> How much pico cost$$$?

19:43:25 dgoodman -> and down in size

19:46:03 ssummit1 -> have you ever used " Go Animate"?

19:46:10 Maureen -> @jackie- I like xtranormal- but some of the gestures are inappropriate for kids

19:46:29 mrsdurff -> @ssummitt`1 http://www.xtranormal.com/

19:46:33 sharonp -> wow, that is super cool! 200 folks!

19:46:34 aureliom08 -> what inappropriate gestures? shooting the bird?

19:46:56 Jackie Gerstein -> I didn't notice Maureen - I guess they didn't either as they are 8 to 11 years old.

19:47:33 jan smith -> The problek with go animate is there are inappro. characters. I think they are working on an ed version.

19:47:45 pam mcleod -> that is so cool! (snapter)

19:47:45 JohnS -> Greenshot: http://greenshot.sourceforge.net/

19:48:08 Jackie Gerstein -> Almost all mainstream Web 2.0 online tools have a legal age restriction of 13 or above.

19:48:48 Lesley Edwards -> Thx.  great resources :D 

19:48:53 Jackie Gerstein -> Yikes - too bad, Maureen, as they find this stuff at home on their own.  I'd rather it in the open so we can discuss it.

19:50:44 Maureen -> @jackie- yes, I'd rather use google docs without them breathing down my neck. There are other things I can use besides xtranormal. But I did talk to them and they say they are working on a solution for ed
