19:52:46 JenniferW -> what is free??
19:52:47 Sharon -> would they permit ETT to allow competitors to also advertise here?
19:52:56 Durff -> no money = free
19:53:05 Cathy E -> what if we love it- then they want to stop?

19:53:40 JenniferW -> will you only be able to use THEIR software??
19:53:41 Durff -> com' on
19:53:45 cathy n -> i find elluminate a bi cumbersome
19:53:49 JohnSchinker -> We tend to lean toward free tools, but the people who make them can't really afford a big advertising deal.
19:53:51 cathy n -> bit
19:53:55 JenniferW -> I like that you don't have your STAMP on anything but education
19:54:00 Durff -> hi greypath
19:54:01 Lee Baber -> really good beer
19:54:21 JoseR -> I like the beer idea
19:54:22 Sharon -> Yugma doesn't offer all the features - like audio
19:54:29 JoseR -> german
19:54:29 greypath -> Hi Its 10Am here what time is it there?
19:54:34 JohnSchinker -> Dave picks good beer
19:54:36 Sharon -> am going with the beer idea - as long as it is not American beer
19:54:47 JenniferW -> I think it is GOOD that you say NO.
19:54:50 Durff -> Sprechen Sie Deutsch
19:54:55 Lee Baber -> they would be canned at that point
19:55:02 cathy n -> estern continental US = 7:55pm

19:55:04 JohnSchinker -> Beer is free too: http://www.freebeer.org/blog/
19:55:04 JenniferW -> this is a small hurdle -- you will have bigger ones that will be harder to say NO to
19:55:08 Sharon -> hi greypath - here it is almost 8 PM
19:55:25 Durff -> 7:55
19:55:28 Lee Baber -> we wanted to call our bluegrass band Free Food and Beer

19:55:45 Lee Baber -> we thought it would be sure to draw a crowd
19:55:56 greypath -> TA for the times
19:56:00 JohnSchinker -> Lee likes to incite riots at her gigs
19:56:05 JoseR -> Using Elluminate as a venue does not give them right over content, right?
19:56:08 Sharon -> oops, bad typing - greypath - it is a different time zone
19:56:18 Sharon -> LOL at Lee
19:56:20 DS -> Greypath, this is the "post show" from EdTech Weekly

19:56:45 JenniferW -> I don't need compensation -- thank you
19:56:49 Durff -> oh beer...beasty beer
19:56:52 Lee Baber -> REally really good beer
19:56:56 Sharon -> although occasionally he will defer to wine
19:57:11 JoseR -> It isn't a blackboard deal right, content would be available at our sites?
19:57:15 JenniferW -> I owe you more than you could ever compensate me
19:57:15 Sharon -> (meaning, NOT American beer)
19:57:47 JoseR -> Elluminate This?
19:57:48 JohnSchinker -> The best beer in the world is made in America.
