 19:21:26  jeff ->  http://www.danieldura.com/code/twittercamp/
 19:21:40  jeff ->  http://www.masternewmedia.org/social_networking/twitter-instant-messagin...

 19:22:23  CathyE ->  Have you looked at the actual planner for NECC- it is great

 19:23:13  JohnSchinker ->  I have a talkr feed for my site -- it's pretty bad
 19:23:18  cbetta ->  I still use twitter to send status updates to Jaiku

 19:23:20  JohnSchinker ->  Nobody listens to it
 19:23:27  alicemercer ->  talkr has some "interesting" ostuff
 19:23:34  cliotech ->  I haven't had great success w/talkr

 19:25:05  arvind ->  I am afraid to even look at Jaiku, I feel too invested in Twitter, and I just started
 19:25:07  JohnSchinker ->  I think I set it up months and months ago, and then forgot about it
 19:25:18  alicemercer ->  I put it up, and I checked the other day, it worked, but some other blog/pods were not school appropriate

 19:25:32  cbetta ->  works fine
 19:25:37  arvind ->  May have to
 19:25:43  cliotech ->  http://cliotech.jaiku.com/ -- I like the idea tha tJaiku allows users to pull various rss feeds together into one stream
 19:25:52  arvind ->  But why better for those with a substantial web profile?
 19:25:52  alicemercer ->  Yeah, I did that too john.

 19:26:58  jeff ->  http://www.foxtorrent.com/
 19:27:19  jeff ->  http://www.digitaldarknet.net/thelist/index.php?page=windows
 19:27:23  arvind ->  wow, doesn't take much to convince me I guess. especially when you utter the magic word...RSS
 19:27:28  cliotech ->  plus, subscribers can select which rss feeds they want to recieve in their friends stream
 19:27:30  JenMad ->  http://cl1p.net/
 19:28:10  JenMad ->  http://cl1p.net/jentest/
