 JenniferW  Hello Room
 dthaggard  Good evening
 JenniferW  Good evening
 charbeck  Is there a feed yet?
 JenniferW  Not yet
 JenniferW  we lost Cheryl
 JenniferW  not literally
 JenniferW  but -- poof -- she was gone
 charbeck  yikes
 sroseman  greetings
 charbeck  hi sue
 JenniferW  Hi Sue
 charbeck  How is Ottowa?
 sroseman  Hi guys
 sroseman  ugg
 sroseman  no snow
 charbeck  You can have some of ours!!
 sroseman  No Winterlude Carnival too on our longest skating rink in the World..the Rideau Canal
 sharonp  Hi everyone
 charbeck  Hi Sharon
 sroseman  Hi Sharon
 sroseman  why don't you do a monthly WOW2 session in Tappedin?
 coolcatteacher  That would be neat.
 JenniferW  LOL -- wish I had time
 coolcatteacher  We are trying to get the stream up, folks, we'll be here soon!
 sroseman  I suggested it to BJB; the editor
 JenniferW  it is a good idea
 JenniferW  just not a working possibility for me rightnow
 sroseman  well think about it for the near future
 sroseman  or summer
 coolcatteacher  We are working folks on this. Stick around, please.
 JenniferW  and how has your 2007 been so far
 sroseman  ok
 coolcatteacher  I think everyone is getting in a little R&R before they start back tonight.
 coolcatteacher  However, I started back today!
 sroseman  Tappedin will be doing a 6 hour session at NECC
 coolcatteacher  6 HOURS!
 sharonp 

for your general amusement - Terry Freedman's latest blog post -

http://terry-freedman.org.uk/artman/publish/article_960.php

 coolcatteacher  Prepare to laugh like the dickens!
 sroseman  virtual with video conferencing
 coolcatteacher  Folks, if you don't hear the stream, we are working on it right now.
 sharonp  had fun working with Terry on his little application
 coolcatteacher  Hang around a moment.
 guest478  ah.
 sharonp  big blogger awards
 guest478  need any help?
 JenniferW  we are checking our backup
 sharonp  Vicki, I can't believe you started back today
 JenniferW  she is checking the feeds
 JenniferW  so -- BIG HAND for Kathy Shields
 sharonp  just about everything was closed here in Qc
 coolcatteacher  Cheryl was getting ready to pull in the stream and then we lost her in skype. We're not sure what happened.
 sharonp  some shops were open
 sharonp  but very few people were at work
 guest478  mmm... computer crash.
 JenniferW  not sure
 sharonp  tomorrow the colleges and universities start back up
 guest478  she on a mac or windows i don't remember
 coolcatteacher  Well, we were back and I had to teach in one hour "everything I knew about podcasting, blogging, wikis, and web 2.0" :D
 JenniferW  quest478 -- hmmmm going incognito tonight???
 sharonp  she is on a mac, I believe
 coolcatteacher  She is on a mac.
 sharonp  wow
 sharonp  my turn is on Monday - something similar
 sharonp  half an hour for podcsting
 coolcatteacher  I wish I had a little longer.
 sharonp  and half an hour for wikis
 coolcatteacher  But then again we get two months in the summer.
 sharonp  for the teachers
 coolcatteacher  Yes, I taught the teachers today too.
 coolcatteacher  and the administrators.
 sharonp  but am up against about 20 other workshops - all run by and for the teachers
 coolcatteacher  Oh, my goodness.
 coolcatteacher  You'll have to give it a great name.
 sharonp  so will just have a handful for each presentation
 coolcatteacher  Like - free food from Sharon.
 JenniferW  Sue -- you said Tapped in is doing 6 hours at NECC??
 JenniferW  on what???
 sharonp  good idea
 sharonp  LOL
 sroseman  yep ..that's right
 JenniferW  about what???
 sharonp  is Tapped in just going to run ongoing webcasting and commentary?
 coolcatteacher  Thank you everyone for your patience.
 sroseman  one moment I will dig up the proposal..and it has been accepted
 JenniferW  cool
 sharonp  you could easily do that at NECC
 coolcatteacher  Neat.
 JenniferW  I would like to read it
 sharonp  there is always sooooo much going on at NeCC
 coolcatteacher  The times I've been in tapped in, I've really learned a lot.
 sharonp  it is amazing
 coolcatteacher  There are some great volunteers over there and they are doing a great service.
 JenniferW  I thought teaching 3 hours was a long time -- teaching 6 is even more WOW
 sharonp  I think the fact that onsite conferences are starting to do live podcasting and such is so great
 coolcatteacher  I went in there for a chat thing and messed everything up but they were so nice.
 sharonp  not everyone can make it to an away-conference
 sroseman  We are soo nice
 JenniferW  did we lose quest???
 sroseman  I have been a member since 1999
 coolcatteacher  6 hours is monumental.
 JenniferW  I am doing 3
 JenniferW  but on online projects -- so it will fly
 sroseman  let me dig something up...one moment
 sharonp  hope they provide 2 meals - if it is a workshop
 coolcatteacher  3 hours is a lot but you're Jennifer Wagner.
 JenniferW  yup
 coolcatteacher  a/k/a Wonder Woman
 sharonp  time flies when you are with Jen
 JenniferW  I can talk about ANYTHING for 180 minutes
 JenniferW  but not 181 :)
 sharonp  just look at my holiday schedule - for example
 sroseman  any audio yet
 coolcatteacher  a/k/a person who knows anyone and CAN talk about anything and sound smart.
 coolcatteacher  Status on audio, Jen.
 JenniferW  she is scrambling
 JenniferW  meaning -- she is frantically trying to pull it together
 sroseman  I will be part of the NECC Tappedin session I believe
 coolcatteacher  We lost Cheryl and we have a stand in who is trying to pull in our stream. She literally had 2 minutes notice.
 JenniferW  HEY DEB
 charbeck  Do you want someonw else to create a skype
 JenniferW  how is Cheryl?????
 coolcatteacher  We're working on pulling up our stream, folks.
 JenniferW  :) We lost her in skype
 coolcatteacher  Cheryl isn't online. I think she had a crash of some kind or a power outage.
 deb Barrows  Hi, Cheryl is on the phone with me. She lost her Internet connection.
 coolcatteacher  What was the weather like up there?
 JenniferW  Deb B is cheryl's friend
 coolcatteacher  OK, great.
 JenniferW  yep -- we thought so
 alicebarr  lots of internet problems here in Maine!
 JenniferW  tell her that we are trying to get Kathy Shields to help out,Deb
 JenniferW  and NOT to worry
 sroseman  Here is the proposal
 JenniferW  we are okay
 sroseman  why don't you do a monthly WOW2 session in Tappedin
 sroseman  oops
 alicebarr  hi deb
 sharonp  okay, have sent out distress calls to three people at WB
 JenniferW  just very very quiet right now
 JenniferW  thanks Sharon
 coolcatteacher  Thank you everyone for your patience. We may have to just do a small skype and record it as Jen suggested.
 sharonp  oh dear
 coolcatteacher  But the chat room is lively.
 sroseman  http://necc2007ti.wikispaces.com/
 JenniferW  we can handle just a chat --
 charbeck  Nice post at the wiki
 coolcatteacher  Oh, Jeff cooper worked on this. He is the person who helped me out so much at Tapped in.
 JenniferW  which wiki???
 coolcatteacher  he showed me so much!
 JenniferW  oh, the tapped in wiki
 coolcatteacher  Jeff is great.
 charbeck  Your wiki...The link for today?
 JenniferW  ahhhh -- thank you

 Cathy E  Don't forget to talk about a hotel for NECC :)
 JenniferW  yup
 JenniferW  LOLOL
 deb Barrows  Cheryl is on my speaker phone. Will someone invite me via SKype and then she can talk.
 coolcatteacher  There is a frantic skype chat going on behind the scenes and microprocessors are burning.
 coolcatteacher  Give us a moment.
 JenniferW  yeah -- rolling in the dough
 JenniferW  please let me know if you hear a stream
 JenniferW  or a rumbling brook
 coolcatteacher  Boy, these folks hanging on need a T shirt or something.
 coolcatteacher  a trickle?
 charbeck  Tonights intro....It was a dark and stormy night when..... crash...
 coolcatteacher  *)
 charbeck  we eventually got things right!
 coolcatteacher  And when we got it right, it was AWESOME!
 alicebarr  Deb: Should I call you?
 charbeck  always is
 coolcatteacher  But until then, we all took nitroglicerine tablets and swigged coffee frantically.
 deb Barrows  sure via Skype
 coolcatteacher  I'll just sing a moment.
 coolcatteacher  How about "The old blue skype, she ain't what she used to be."
 sharonp  Lee Baber might be able to help us set up the stream
 sharonp  she is online helping me right now
 sharonp  she can set up the stream
 JenniferW  OKAY
 alicebarr  If Lee can't get it going I can try
 JenniferW  please open a NEW window or tab
 JenniferW  and go to this link

 JenniferW  Hmmm --- didn't get that email
 JenniferW  I don't want to miss it this time
 sharonp  saw Chris Betcher's blog today - he had put his OWN pic in the Time mag cover on his blog - laughed my head off
 charbeck  I'll give you a personal wake up call on the coast!!!
 JenniferW  truly??? I didn't see that
 JenniferW  chris -- you could
 JenniferW  sometimes that is the only way to GET me moving
 charbeck  Do you sleepin past 2?
 JenniferW  am or pm
 charbeck  pm
 JenniferW  nope
 JenniferW  I am usually awake by 6
 JenniferW  moving by 7
 JenniferW  :)
 sharonp  http://betch.edublogs.org/2006/12/30/person-of-the-year-moi/
 JenniferW  very very clever and cut
 JenniferW  cute
 charbeck  Those projects that include cross border groups are the best.
 sroseman  all teachers have to have a backup program
 sroseman  goes with the territory
 sroseman  quite a costly cover
 sharonp  yes
 sharonp  harnessing the passion of the ordinary person
 sharonp  however, have any of you seen the epic website?
 JenniferW 
 sharonp  http://idorosen.com/mirrors/robinsloan.com/epic/
 sharonp  a little scary - really shows the need for info literacy
 sharonp  it is an 8 min video
 JenniferW  here are the 15 articles -- http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1569526,00.html
 JenniferW  VERY VERY easy reading
 cheryloakes wow2  great story vicki
 charbeck  Karl fisch's take on epic is even better.
 sroseman  clap clap
 sharonp  would love to see it
 sharonp  so then you have seen epic?
 charbeck  It is at google video. I say epic last year... yikes
 coolcatteacher  I don't know what y'all are talking about!? Hyperlinks anyone?
 sharonp  I find it amazing that it was made about 3 years gao
 sharonp  agp
 sharonp  ago
 sharonp  http://idorosen.com/mirrors/robinsloan.com/epic/
 JenniferW  12,896 -- how many amazon book reviews by Harriet Klausner (54 years old)
 sroseman  The Refigerator article should be inspiring to the average teacher who would like to get started but is slightly fearful..nice metaphor
 sharonp  yes
 cheryloakes wow2  thanks susan
 coolcatteacher  The refrigerator article is great!
 sendkathy  I enjoyed the frig metaphor also
 sendkathy  I will be sharing it with the teachers at my school
 cheryloakes wow2  thanks kathy, it was fun thinking about it
 sendkathy  You sould see my frig!
 sroseman  this site should go along with the article http://www.tastyword.com/
 sharonp  teachers don't like that feeling typically
 JenniferW  another TIME article -- Kelley is a military blogger, or mil-blogger, one of at least 1,200 servicemen and -women who write about their lives online. So far his blog, Wordsmith At War, has logged more than 200,000 hits.
 sharonp  loss of control is hard
 JenniferW  a podcast example too:
 JenniferW  Their show isn't a conventional cooking show. It's a video podcast called Crash Test Kitchen, and it's their sheer fallibility, their humanity, that makes the thing work. Waz and Lenny don't have the wizardly air of a Mario Batali or a Martha Stewart. "We have always tried to steer clear of the temptation to make it a Web version of a TV cooking show, with the old here's-one-we-prepared-earlier fakery and everything always turning out right,"
 coolcatteacher  I love the term off balance.
 sroseman  I am still frightened with skype
 cheryloakes wow2  Jen, you are really giving some good text
 lee  i am getting the chat copied...in chunks
 sharonp  great examples - don'T think I have read all of tht
 cheryloakes wow2  Susan, it was my fault last night when I lost you, it was too many people in skype
 sharonp  thanks lee!
 sendkathy  I like Crash test too
 cheryloakes wow2  thanks lee, you are great
 cheryloakes wow2  bless you
 lee  So are you guys...
 sharonp  wow, can't wait to try out Crash test
 lee  great that is
 sendkathy  I have a question, how many blogs can a person maintain? I mean there are so many different blog sites, how does one choose?
 sharonp  exactly
 sroseman  Crash test???
 sharonp  rss feeds can help
 cheryloakes wow2  kathy, how about a google?
 sharonp  but honestly - I only read a fraction of what comes into my rss feed
 sendkathy  Some give more exposure than others, no?
 cheryloakes wow2  it is a math joke, kathy
 sharonp  titles and descriptions are SOOOO importatn
 sharonp  we should be teaching our students how to write a good title
 coolcatteacher  Well, kathy - you choose and stick with it.
 charbeck  I found karl fisch's take on epic 2015 http://thefischbowl.blogspot.com/2006/11/2020-vision.html Phew
 cheryloakes wow2  yes, I skim a lot, and go back and read things a bunch
 sharonp  thanks
 sharonp  chris
 coolcatteacher  I use blogger b/c it is SO tightly integrated with Google.
 coolcatteacher  But it isn't the easiest to use at all.
 charbeck  new blogger is pretty easy
 sharonp  thanks Chris for the fischbowl article - looks interesting
 charbeck  It is like getting out of bed. the first step is the hardest
 sharonp  I showed the "Did you know" powerpoint at our last critical friends group meeting with several of our staff
 charbeck  Sharon read all of his greatest hits. They are powerful.
 coolcatteacher  http://www.marumushi.com/apps/newsmap/newsmap.cfm
 sharonp  I will
 coolcatteacher  Newsmap - the WAY I love to read NEWS!
 coolcatteacher  It is great for history teachers and cultural literacy - you can compare the news in various countries.
 cheryloakes wow2  sharon i really like the did you know, I added some slides to make it pertinent for my school district
 sharonp  good idea Cheryl
 cheryloakes wow2  lee can you do 10 more minutes
 sharonp  I love the newsmap
 charbeck  Jen you should of read message I sent to Cheryl
 cheryloakes wow2  i'll send it to her.
 sharonp  blog tag
 charbeck  You have created a great network!!!
 JenniferW  http://elemenous.typepad.com/weblog/2007/01/im_starting_my_.html
 sendkathy  I found a new blog site today called BlogHer, reminds me of wow2 because it focuses on the feminine voice,http://blogher.org/topic/research-academia-education
 charbeck  like a frapper map
 cheryloakes wow2  Terry Freedman has a great article for all you bloggers.http://terry-freedman.org.uk/artman/publish/article_960.php
 sroseman  must be like frapper map
 coolcatteacher  Lee, thank you for tonight!
 JenniferW  chris -- I will ask Cheryl if I can read it
 charbeck  Sharon corrected me a few days ago!!! i say it properly now
 cheryloakes wow2  she sure can read it
 cheryloakes wow2  Lee thanks so much for tonight. kathy thanks for recording.
