19:12:02 JenMad -> http://www.det.wa.edu.au/education/cmis/eval/curriculum/ict/index.htm
19:12:06 sharonp -> cool, not if or when or where (forgive previous)
19:12:22 sharonp -> NOT if BUT when or where...

19:12:49 Brad H -> hey JehZon
19:12:49 sharonp -> what is wrong with my brain today??
19:12:59 JehZon -> Greetings. I hear music.
19:13:09 Brad H -> That's from my neck of the woods
19:13:18 jeff -> http://www.wired.com/politics/onlinerights/news/2007/08/wiki_tracker?cur...
19:13:36 Brad H -> but then a lot of things are blocked in schools here that they recommend
19:14:58 dave -> http://www.netvibes.com/
19:15:00 JenMad -> brad: Isn't that a kicker?!
19:15:03 jeff -> http://wired.reddit.com/wikidgame/
19:15:20 Brad H -> can be
19:15:54 Jason Hando -> Hi folks
19:16:02 sharonp -> HI Jason
19:16:11 sharonp -> gotta get back to netvibes
19:16:25 sharonp -> hmmmm... have so many feeds now
19:16:33 Jason Hando -> pageflakes has also had a rework recently
19:16:35 sharonp -> competitor to igoogle even
19:16:56 JenMad -> http://www.canada.com/nationalpost/financialpost/story.html?id=4aacc5bc-... and http://tech.yahoo.com/blogs/raskin/12061
19:17:53 JehZon -> You guys going to mention Quechup? Blech.
19:18:31 sharonp -> WOW - a Canadian article
19:18:47 sharonp -> Quechup is sneaky - avoid at all costs
19:19:06 sharonp -> I thought it might originally be from Québec
19:19:25 sharonp -> Dave was throwing out psychic vibes
19:19:45 sharonp -> I think backchanneling is absolutely valid
19:19:47 JenniferW -> so they close their laptops during when they could be taking notes??
19:19:49 JehZon -> The Laptop Herring: http://www.randsinrepose.com/archives/2007/08/31/the_laptop_herring.html
19:20:10 sharonp -> so you would prefer blank stares and passive listening?
19:20:33 sharonp -> my daughter was interviewed by Terry Freedman about backchanneling
19:20:34 Brad H -> I had a mature student teacher the other day tell me that kids should only have computers at school as a tool, not at home at all
19:20:35 jeff -> http://terraminds.com/twitter/
19:20:41 JehZon -> "All this focus on laptops as the problem is a red herring. Whether you’re running a meeting with a rampant laptop problem or sitting in a meeting where you have no role, the actual problem is that someone doesn’t understand the value of the meeting."
19:20:44 jeff -> http://twittersearch.com/search/
19:20:47 sharonp -> she articulated a very sound point about differentiated learning
19:21:24 jeff -> http://explore.twitter.com/blocks/
19:22:02 dave -> http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070824-study-students-more-wary-o...

19:23:21 JenMad -> http://connect.educause.edu/library/abstract/TextMessagingtoImpro/44833
19:23:57 JehZon -> Shouldn't real research be online. If it isn't, it won't be real for much longer.
19:24:07 dave -> :)
19:24:30 jeff -> http://mashable.com/2007/09/02/quechup/
19:24:36 sharonp -> Okay - my daughter's very good friend went to his college course (computer science) last week and was told by his instructor that he is a loser because he DOES NOT have a facebook account where potential employers could check him out - I was.... bemused
19:24:52 jeff -> http://quechup.com/welcome.php
19:25:02 JenniferW -> does someone have someone walking above them on the next floor -- I thought it was my house, but took my headphones off -- and no one is there......besides the fact that I am on the top floor. :)
19:25:35 sharonp -> Quechup MUST be pronounce KETCHUP in my Québecois world
19:25:46 JehZon -> Is this only a windows thing?
19:25:46 dave -> http://whyfirefoxisblocked.com/index1.php
19:25:57 JenniferW -> don't sign up
19:26:01 JehZon -> Does Quechup bother Macs?
19:26:12 sharonp -> Quechup would bother my mac
19:26:18 jeff -> Is that a rhetorical question?
19:26:24 JenniferW -> it bothers EVERYONE -- it hijacks your address book
19:26:48 sharonp -> exactly
19:27:15 JenniferW -> Can you say that again????
19:27:24 sharonp -> this sounds like reasoning that only my former IT director would have
19:27:25 JenniferW -> how is firefox involved??
19:27:41 JenMad -> http://diberri.dyndns.org/wikipedia/html2wiki/index.html
19:27:55 JehZon -> Firefox has a plug-in that can block ads. It's not a joke.
19:28:08 JehZon -> They think it breaks their business model.
19:28:11 JenniferW -> I am checking HOAXES
19:28:51 JenMad -> http://diberri.dyndns.org/wikipedia/html2wiki/index.html
19:28:56 jeff -> http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070829-vista-service-pack-1-detai...

19:53:40 sharonp -> for some reason
19:54:03 JenniferW -> I think $250 is so small a fund for what you are providing
