19:17:20  JohnSchinker ->  The conventional wisdom is that it's the way to go if you need to run windows apps on linux
19:17:23  JenniferW ->  is codeweaver selling legal software -- the cost seems not quite right

19:38:01  Alice Mercer ->  Hello
19:38:10  Alice Mercer ->  I could get there easier
19:38:44  sharonp ->  I have been working on a prof dev survey for needs assessment all week - any trusted testers out there??
19:39:13  JenniferW ->  how will you test us???  LOL
19:39:13  sharonp ->  we are down to a survey that has less than 60 clicks (she cringes)
19:39:47  sharonp ->  you take survey (surveymonkey) and give us feedback - too long, too incoherent... etc.
19:39:53  JenniferW ->  When you use AMAZON affliates -- you can provide educational content and book ideas
19:39:56  JenniferW ->  LOL
19:40:01  JenniferW ->  Sharon -- send me the link
19:40:03  sharonp ->  wow, took me a YEAR to get $10 of google ads
19:40:22  jeff ->  skype 'worldbridges' to join in
19:40:25  JohnSchinker ->  Get in there, JW
19:40:30  JenniferW ->  LOL
19:41:17  Durff ->  what about monthly or weekly sponsors?
19:41:38  JohnSchinker ->  on the shows, Durff?
19:41:45  JohnSchinker ->  or just on the web site?
19:41:59  Durff ->  on worldbbridges
19:42:07  Durff ->  e site
19:42:11  Durff ->  the
19:42:25  JenniferW ->  http://salutetoseuss.wikispaces.com/BookTitles
19:42:25  JohnSchinker ->  that makes sense.
19:42:28  davec ->  who would do the work lining up the sponsorships?
19:42:31  JenniferW ->  I get kick backs on each book
19:42:38  Durff ->  radio stations do it
19:42:39  davec ->  kick backs.
19:42:41  davec ->  yes.
19:42:44  davec ->  they do.
19:42:49  sharonp ->  grants would work
19:42:57  Durff ->  you dave
19:43:02  davec ->  the history of advertising, however, works the other way around
19:43:07  davec ->  the product comes first
19:43:13  davec ->  and then the show is created to sell the product
19:43:26  davec ->  grants would work
19:43:29  sharonp ->  I'm with Dave - skeptical of other involvement
19:43:42  sharonp ->  maybe it is just the Canadian in me
19:43:45  Alice Mercer ->  I like the affiliate idea, because it'll miss the random aspect of google ads
19:43:46  Durff ->  grants how?
19:44:05  davec ->  http://educationbridges.org
19:44:20  sharonp ->  apply for gov't grant or independent grant that allows fro some kind of freedom of expression
19:44:30  sroseman ->  the wiki
19:44:49  Durff ->  i think stakeholders should be peaying
19:44:54  JenniferW ->  grants work great
19:45:35  sharonp ->  sorry Jen, already had it penned in our wiki for WOW2 (just kidding)
19:45:42  JenniferW ->  LOL
19:45:46  JenniferW ->  I knew you would
19:46:01  Alice Mercer ->  I say start with the Amazon and chip-in?
19:46:02  JenniferW ->  you could have affliate links -- we pay you to link to us!!  :)
19:46:14  JenniferW ->  and then you pay us to link to you --
19:46:25  JenniferW ->  LOL -- okay, maybe not  :)
19:46:27  Alice Mercer ->  No, and grant takes time to get going?
19:46:50  JenniferW ->  that is why I don't use Google Ads -- I can't get them to always stay educational
19:47:01  JenniferW ->  perhaps you can share how you can get specific ads
19:47:15  Alice Mercer ->  They are less random over time aren't they?
19:47:16  JenniferW ->  I stay with the STATIC ads -- such as FireFox, Google Docs
19:47:22  Alice Mercer ->  Isn't it based on ad-sense?
19:47:35  JenniferW ->  Alice, I have not been able to train my ads
19:47:39  JenniferW ->  to stay educational
19:47:55  JenMad ->  TOM BROUGHT IN MY NEW MONITOR!!! YIPPIE!!!
19:48:05  JenniferW ->  Yeah!  Tom!!
19:48:15  Durff ->  googles ads solution is not a proactive choice
19:48:21  sharonp ->  x-rated babes of edtech - JenM is there something you are not telling us (hah! remember I am a Women of the web - you should see how often I get kidded about our "calendar")
19:48:29  JenMad ->  My anniversary present ... some woman want jewels ... I want hardware and software!
19:48:34  jeff ->  http://travelbridges.com
19:48:55  JenniferW ->  Sharon -- the speed dating with Sheryl Nussbaum Beach was something FUN to explain
19:49:12  sroseman ->  Speed dating???
19:49:25  sharonp ->  yeah, missed out on being one of Miguel Guhlin's speed dating teachers.... sigh
19:49:27  Durff ->  how did you do that jen?
19:49:31  Alice Mercer ->  Wow, this is sounding uncomfortable?
19:49:38  sharonp ->  would have worn my lip gloss for that!
19:49:49  JenniferW ->  LOL -- Sheryl had set up a scenario where we talked with 4 teachers for 15 minutes each
19:49:50  Durff ->  we know
19:49:51  JenniferW ->  via skype
19:50:03  JenniferW ->  and then at 15 minutes, we got a new group
19:50:09  JenniferW ->  she called it SPEED DATING
19:50:10  sharonp ->  so had Miguel - then there were network probs
19:50:16  JenniferW ->  I think it needed another name
19:50:21  sharonp ->  (sigh - disappointment)
19:50:33  JenniferW ->  yes, the second time -- it did not work out as well
