18:49:15 Daf -> http://www.alado.net/webheads
18:49:17 ElizabethH-S -> OK, Jose
18:49:19 mizmercer -> http://www.edsupport.cc/mguhlin/archives/2007/05/entry_3204.htm
18:49:28 JoseR -> bye
18:49:32 cheryloakes -> no mac video was working in operator 11 today
18:49:40 mizmercer -> This is what I was discussing with Dave, for those of you who think it's a state secret...
18:49:42 sharonp -> my school's English dept has decided to replace a CANADIAN novel with the play - 12 Angry Men (an American text); we decided one project for the students would be to create a new play - 12 Apologetic and conciliatory Canadians! lol
18:49:48 ElizabethH-S -> Alado worked much better on my laptop PC with wireless yesterday
18:49:57 ElizabethH-S -> I like the new interface
18:49:59 mizmercer -> LMAO
18:50:07 ElizabethH-S -> OOh--video--good
18:50:08 JoseR -> Went all wifi for the conference
18:50:17 JoseR -> Not me
18:50:33 ElizabethH-S -> See you Jose!
18:50:36 sharonp -> is there a skype conference for this or should I hit channel A or B?
18:50:53 ElizabethH-S -> What are you doing with the Tapped In round up later, Jeff?
18:51:00 sharonp -> thks Jeff
18:51:07 ElizabethH-S -> I saw a note that you also had a live audio at that time?
18:51:19 JoseR -> Tapped in is mostly text right?
18:51:29 ElizabethH-S -> Yes, it's a text chat
18:51:45 ElizabethH-S -> We have lowerlevel users and they are just getting started with synchronous
18:51:49 mizmercer -> I did a tapped in, and it was very old fashioned in many ways
18:52:07 JoseR -> the guide threw away his headset I think.
18:52:08 ElizabethH-S -> yes, but very dependable, and you can open Web Tours in a second window/tab
18:52:27 alicebarr -> Like SL is now.... Text
18:52:35 JoseR -> very true
18:52:42 ElizabethH-S -> Yes--why doesn't SL have voice?
18:52:50 ElizabethH-S -> You guys must be exhausted!
18:52:51 alicebarr -> That's why everyone stands around trying to figure out what to do
18:52:54 sharonp -> audio is coming soon to SL
18:52:59 Jeff -> It will have voice soon
18:53:05 ElizabethH-S -> I would think so
18:53:20 alicebarr -> Much more powerful with voice
18:53:21 ElizabethH-S -> I find in SL everyone spends a lot of time asking
18:53:27 ElizabethH-S -> "who are you in realife?"
18:53:40 ElizabethH-S -> It's like old voice conferencing ''Can you hear me now?"
18:53:44 alicebarr -> Funny Elizabeth!
18:53:49 JoseR -> Jeff We can turn yugma off now.
18:54:03 ElizabethH-S -> Yes, chatting was text
18:54:20 mizmercer -> Voice organizes it better.
18:54:30 sharonp -> pacman stage of SL..... funny
18:54:30 mizmercer -> Remember the if a class was like chat video?
18:54:41 mizmercer -> I think voice and text chat is nice.
18:54:49 mizmercer -> Then one can be the back chat...
18:54:55 JohnSchinker -> http://www.trustyetc.com/trustyblog/2007/02/20/what-if-class-were-like-a...
18:54:58 sharonp -> yes, to me, SL is like a visual MOO
18:55:03 sharonp -> or MUSH
18:55:03 ElizabethH-S -> I notice that the text chat is always off topic, however
18:55:09 mizmercer -> Thanks John!
18:55:13 mizmercer -> Alwasy the timely link
18:55:24 JohnSchinker -> I was looking for the link, and then realized that you mentioned it
