18:54:00 JenWagner -> my neighbors think I am weird -- sudden outbursts of laughter -- and they know I live alone. :)
18:54:19 dave -> @jdub is it really only the laughter?
18:54:29 JenWagner -> well, that is their first basis

19:04:25 Alice Mercer -> AND they have come in helpful.
19:04:42 sharonp -> I mean the whole domain name and Google sites for education
19:04:46 JenWagner -> so honestly -- Jeff is the SHOW'S HOST
19:04:55 JenWagner -> even though NO ONE IS IN CHARGE :)
19:04:57 Alice Mercer -> Kids doing reports on google docs, could easily get them in lab, in class, etc. Otherwise with cruddy novell network they'd have to log into lab
19:05:01 JenM -> @jw ... NO QUESTION!
19:05:10 randyn -> im looking into getting my mom to use Google Sites for a classroom website
19:05:13 JenWagner -> yeah -- he keeps saying "NO ONE" but I know he is
19:05:20 Alice Mercer -> OH, google sites is AWFUL!

19:05:59 Alice Mercer -> I was going to review in INstructify, but it wwas awful.
19:06:03 randyn -> what is so back about Google Sites?
19:06:04 sharonp -> the school needs a website
19:06:05 JenM -> 3 year anniversary party http://www.edtechtalk.com/node/3185

19:06:27 matt montagne -> @sharon...those werren't all open source...some were just free...
19:06:28 JenWagner -> I just didn't have good success with it and students -- but maybe it was me :)
19:06:31 sharonp -> but they need a school website
19:06:35 Alice Mercer -> For vannilla page that will take embeds, jottit.com
19:06:38 courosa -> goes with Jen's Trojan reference earlier
19:06:47 JenWagner -> use KOMPOZER
19:06:50 JenWagner -> it is OSS
19:06:51 Alice Mercer -> Aimed to 9 year olds?
19:06:54 Lisa Parisi -> What a pleasant thought
19:06:57 sharonp -> and it is better than the freewebsite.cm type service they are currenlty using with ADS that are very inappropriate
19:07:08 JenWagner -> <---not this Jen's reference -- unless we are talking about USC
19:07:11 Lisa Parisi -> no
19:07:34 Alice Mercer -> Lisa, hello
19:07:44 mrsdurff -> hey!
19:07:46 Alice Mercer -> Well, meat eating has it's issues
19:07:54 JenWagner -> Would you like to follow in anyone's carbon footrpints??
19:07:55 Lisa Parisi -> Hi Alice...see I'm here because of Durff's twit. So it's 7 PM
19:07:58 mrsdurff -> go vegans
19:08:00 guest256 -> yeah...kids can so control what is served in their homes. I'm thinking this is NOT a good site for kids!!
19:08:07 Alice Mercer -> Yah hoo!
19:08:27 JenWagner -> did someone drop the LINK??
19:08:27 sharonp -> @matt... can google earth and sketchup be used on relatively low RAM machines?
19:08:32 dave -> http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/06/03/abc_planet_slayer/
19:08:43 PeggyG -> Hi all-having computer issues--couldn't post to chat so changed browsers-good now. Loving the ustream :-)

19:08:50 JL -> audio ok?
19:08:59 matt montagne -> @sharonP...not totally certain...Sketchup is a wonderful program tho...our students love to explore and discover with it
19:09:01 sharonp -> audio goes a bit in and out for me
19:09:07 randyn -> anybody using Firefox 3?
19:09:09 JasonR -> Can't get iTunes to play the .pls. Listening via Ustream
19:09:21 sharonp -> is sketchup browser-based? or can it be used offline?
19:09:23 Alice Mercer -> Red asphalt!
19:09:27 dave -> @randyn had to close mine
19:09:28 PeggyG -> audio is coming in great for me on the ustream-couldn't get audio on iTunes
19:09:37 randyn -> RC2? or earlier?
19:09:37 matt montagne -> If the rest of the world consumed as much meat as Americans did...
19:09:38 Alice Mercer -> But that's for teenagers, not 9 yo's
19:09:40 JenWagner -> I still have nightmares of a movie we saw in Driver's Ed
19:09:46 shaun fletcher -> eat organically grown meat or at least local meat that isn't shipped half way around the world
19:10:02 Alice Mercer -> I like my food to be well-travelled?
19:10:02 guest256 -> @alice mercer - Exactly. Completely difference age groups.
19:10:07 HelenOtway -> sound has gone for me
19:10:11 JenWagner -> can a 9 year old dictate to parents what they can eat??
19:10:27 guest256 -> @jenwager Mine try! (-:
19:10:29 Alice Mercer -> Is that Dave who is guest256?
19:10:33 JenWagner -> sorry -- not a parent here -- but memory serves me, that I ate what they put in front of me
19:10:40 sharonp -> no, Dave is guest476
19:10:46 courosa -> wow, this is an extra deep ETW ... sign of things to come? anniversayr edition? :-)

19:10:57 sharonp -> unless he is changing his numbers
19:11:00 Alice Mercer -> Thoght he might be self-dealing
19:11:00 mrsdurff -> i would guess guest256 is related to guest248
19:11:01 Mr. Shelhart -> 9 year olds can influence the family menus.
19:11:03 matt montagne -> a 9 year old can have an impact...
19:11:12 PeggyG -> Same for me Jen--we ate what we were served and were expected to clean up everything on our plate :-)
19:11:15 guest256 -> ahh..I am a mystery. (-:
19:11:20 JenWagner -> hmmm guest 256 is a parent -- what else do we kn ow
19:11:29 Alice Mercer -> How do you make the case to 9 yo, although many of them go home and nag mom and dad to stop smoking

19:20:54 guest256 -> @alice mercer Try "dschinker" for those links. (-:
19:20:57 PeggyG -> Someone in our AzTEA group was recommending Adobe Contribute for us but we decided we had better alternatives to maintaining our website that were browser based and didn't require software download.
19:21:13 obama -> boo to vista
19:21:13 mrsdurff -> cookie time
19:21:24 JenWagner -> hmmmmm

19:21:58 obama -> why not upgrade to xp?
19:22:07 dave -> i have xp too
19:22:08 guest256 -> @jenwager Shall we call you Sherlock? (-:
19:22:09 randyn -> haha, Vista serves me well, I think is better than xp
19:22:10 sujokat -> hiya darren once again
19:22:27 randyn -> xp gave me problems, im kinda reverse from everyone else, :)
19:22:29 JenWagner -> well, I thought I knew you -- but didn't think it was YOU..........thought you were Doug S :)
19:22:44 darrenmurphy -> hi
19:22:49 guest256 -> @jenwager Same initials, so you were close. (-:
19:23:01 mrsdurff -> what did i miss? is bush here yet?
19:23:02 sharonp -> Will be forced t teach with Adobe Creative Suite in the fall - I asked if they had considered OSS, nope, they want the real deal - all about image
19:23:17 randyn -> Paint.NET is pretty cool
19:23:22 guest256 -> @mrsdurff The talk would be SO over his head. (-:
19:23:29 obama -> bush is having trouble turning on his machine and logging into the internets
19:23:35 Alice Mercer -> Sharon, Adobe is a pain in some ways. I've had problems with premiere elements.
19:23:36 JenWagner -> THANK you THANK YOU THANK YOU -- my CS 3 totally crashed -- won't reload.....thank you for this LINK!!!!
19:23:38 mrsdurff -> so very true
19:23:39 sharonp -> @obama LOL
19:23:40 guest256 -> @obama *LOL!*
19:23:42 matt montagne -> @sharonP....I know all about that mentality...I wish more leaders were concerned about social justice
19:23:43 PeggyG -> @guest256-now that was funny!!
19:24:00 misst2 -> because he refuses to use something invented by gore
19:24:07 JenWagner -> I like KOMPOZER very much
19:24:08 hilld58 -> My kids are using paint.net. I gotta try it
19:24:11 Alice Mercer -> @sp notas many as with Movie Maker, but MM is FREE. District paid money to have PE crash
19:24:29 sharonp -> @matt - yup, my argument may become that we want our students to be cognitively flexible and be able to transfer skills to other progams
19:24:32 mrsdurff -> oh, is gore here too? what fun
19:24:38 obama -> irfanview is great, use it with my ... students ... i mean ... delegates
19:24:41 Alice Mercer -> Ouch, that hurts MissT
19:25:13 obama -> yes we can!
19:25:18 hilld58 -> @sharonp then what OS we use doesn't matter

19:25:23 JenWagner -> Just a sec
19:25:27 matt montagne -> @sharon...the other advantage is that all students are able to install the software on their home computers
19:25:29 JenWagner -> I need to recheck in as John McCain
