19:43:39 sharonp -> I would love my XO.... if I had it
19:43:47 CK in Nagoya -> This chat room wouldn't let me paste in the link, I had the type it in. Strange. It kept pasting in a link that I copied within the chat.

19:44:46 cyndidannerkuhn -> I agree, the copy and paste thing is so annoying.....
19:45:11 congerjan -> yep... I am on a Mac and it won't let me copy and paste...
19:45:27 cyndidannerkuhn -> buy them all a MacBook, every age needs one
19:46:07 JL -> we're considering switching to other chat room - can't take the pain we're causing Mac users much longer
19:46:20 sroseman -> Did anyone else have trouble with Don't Click Me ..hung up my MAC
19:46:44 gary -> My Mac worked fine
19:46:48 Matt_Cronin -> Works fine on my Mac (using Camino 1.5)

19:47:04 dougsymington -> especially good
19:47:16 gary -> Many Mac users here - it appears
19:47:19 sroseman -> I am using Safari
19:47:30 lee baber -> Safari has been funky for me lately
19:47:42 lee baber -> doesnt seem to be updating things enough
19:47:46 dougsymington -> as was Matt Mullenweg's keynote
19:47:48 cyndidannerkuhn -> Guess I should try Camino on my Mac
19:47:50 gary -> Using Firefox
19:47:58 lee baber -> firefox on mac seems best for me
19:48:01 cyndidannerkuhn -> I am using FireFox now too
19:48:02 dougsymington -> nv08 and northernvoice are tags at media sites
19:48:10 lee baber -> funn but ie is best for my dell with vista
19:48:14 gary -> Hard to go back to Safari
19:48:22 congerjan -> I agree... it works better in Firefox
19:48:24 cyndidannerkuhn -> Have a student from China that worked for Apple and he swears by Camino
19:48:25 lee baber -> firefox doesnt work wortha darn on that
19:48:43 scottlo -> here's the littlest puter I've seen recently: http://www.kohjinsha.com.sg
19:48:43 sroseman -> Camino ..may give it a ry
19:48:45 dougsymington -> how does it know it

19:49:14 Alvin Trusty -> It's like a mail truck... it sticks out.
19:49:22 Alvin Trusty -> No one steals mail trucks
19:49:35 jepcke -> Camino is fine, but I much prefer FireFox for my MacBook running Tiger
19:49:36 Matt_Cronin -> I love Camino (uses Firefox's rendering engine Gecko), although no plugins
19:49:51 cyndidannerkuhn -> I am runninf Leopard
19:49:59 JohnS -> But they still steal priceless one-of-a-kind paintings.
19:50:19 jepcke -> Camino is FAR superior to Safari
19:50:33 sharonp -> I think it depends on cultural context - XO is better than nothing,
19:50:38 sroseman -> Leopard is causing us problems
19:50:54 dave -> @sharonp... i'm really not sure that's true
19:51:20 cyndidannerkuhn -> i just wnat an iPhone, but not At & T where I live

19:58:43 cyndidannerkuhn -> connections are where it is at!!
19:58:56 sharonp -> they are probably working harder than for a regular course!
19:59:09 sharonp -> but the learning curve is probably that much greater
19:59:54 scottlo -> jeff could you say a little more about the conference you'll be doing live online this week??

20:02:59 sharonp -> Lisa
20:03:06 Durff -> Sharon
20:03:23 Durff -> call a cab?
20:03:46 sharonp -> It was Stephen Downes who actually challenged me about not wanting to be social - not wanting to be forced to work with other people
20:04:01 courosa -> asocial probably should have been the term.
20:04:18 Durff -> cyndi - do you ever have a virtual mtg with the undergrads and the teachers in the trenches?
20:04:40 sharonp -> made me sit back and thiink about making collaboration compulsory - bec I am such a strong believer in social constructivism
20:05:06 Durff -> but you are such a social person sharon

20:08:17 scottlo -> can I make a quick pitch on the way out??
20:08:17 tollie -> re: "being social" - I'm not so sure the issue is being social as much as it is being forced to go on the record by posting online. Even with "anonymous" blogs, the degree of anonymity is - questionable.
20:08:24 courosa -> thanks everyone ... sorry to rant on and on
20:09:02 JenM -> @courosa ... good stuff!
20:09:19 gary -> @courosa - we don't mind considering all the good twitter links we get from you.
