19:02:17 JenM -> NING ... http://techcrunch.com/2010/04/15/nings-bubble-bursts-no-more-free-networ...

19:02:18 JohnS -> Interesting that this link, arguably the post that started it all, isn't up anymore Ning Update: http://creators.ning.com/forum/topics/ning-update

19:04:43 matt montagne -> hey all

19:04:51 JenM -> hey, matt!

19:04:51 PeggyG -> Hi Matt :-)

19:04:55 matt montagne -> gotta say that I agree with Dave on this one...first for everything

19:05:17 matt montagne -> I don't understand the outrage

19:05:37 matt montagne -> ning should open source their platform

19:05:58 JenM -> @matt ... me, too (agree w/ dave) ... hmm ... go figure

19:06:03 PeggyG -> Many Ning communities were started by individuals and not schools/districts so even $100/year is a lot of money for individuals

19:06:13 kyteacher (Angela) -> I agree.  They are a business that must survive tough economic times like everyone else. Hope for affordable options for teachers.

19:06:31 matt montagne -> a culling of the low-no traffic nings isn't a bad thing

19:07:08 PeggyG -> do Nings have to be large communities to be effective collaborative tools? I don't think so.

19:07:31 matt montagne -> no, they definitely don't peggy

19:08:19 PeggyG -> yes :-)

19:08:58 PeggyG -> and retired educators who have a fixed income :-)

19:10:25 kyteacher (Angela) -> But I spend tons of money on my classroom every year...now I just have to think about whether or not it is that valuable to me.
