 21:23:25  WOScholar : Hey Durff. Missed you during the fun in my meeting this afternoon.
 21:23:33  Brenda Muench : i had trouble bookmarking when i brought up someone else's sharetabs
 21:23:38  Sheila : Hi mrsdurff!
 21:23:39  mcarls : sharetabs.com? better than delicious?
 21:23:47  mcarls : Hello Durff
 21:24:19  kapil : i think delicious is for more permanent bookmarking while sharetabs is for temporary usages like links shared in podcast , conferences , LIVE blogging kind of situations
 21:24:40  mcarls : Like Jog the Web?
 21:24:49  tjtech : it is a great way to get teacher quickly into tabbed browsing
 21:25:03  kapil : i love diigo.com
 21:25:07  Sheila : Took me 20 minutes to get the chat room to load! Finally restarted! My poor mac, need to free up some memory.
 21:25:17  Scott Shelhart : Sharetabs=  Look at what I'm doing NOW.....Diigo= Look at what I've discovered in the past.
 21:25:56  tjtech : @scott great way to say it
 21:26:31  jgates513 : who all uses diigo with students?
 21:26:51  mcarls : Delicious is simple and easy.  I have Diigo account, don't use it nearly as much.
 21:27:10  kapil : here is a great link for 7 reasons why diigo is better than delicious http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/7-reasons-diigo-tastes-better-than-delicious/
 21:28:19  Scott Shelhart : @shelia - I just ordered memory for my windows PC.  Memory is CHEAP right now
 21:28:30  Brenda Muench : i use diigo for myself and have a delicious account for my classroom
 21:28:32  mcarls : Thanks @kapil  I will try it. 
 21:28:38  Scott Shelhart : New diigo group http://groups.diigo.com/groups/cell-phones-in-education
 21:28:41  jgates513 : and networks in delicious
 21:29:01  mrsdurff : true
 21:29:05  WOScholar : @sheila I have a MB Pro with 4GB RAM. It still took some time to load for me as well. About 2 minutes. Not typical.
 21:29:13  Sheila : @scott - seems like the next step.
 21:29:17  Brenda Muench : I love that I can embed my tag could into my blog for kids to use - diigo can't do that I don't think
 21:29:41  tjtech : Diigo can if you go to tools
 21:29:46  Sheila : Maybe it's the solar flares . . . 
 21:30:14  kapil : I use both of them ...but lately i am loving diigo , i can do a lot of things with my links, blog them directly, twitter them , highlight, read later directly from diigo toolbar in firefox
 21:30:18  tjtech : @Brenda just found it this weekend
 21:30:41  Brenda Muench : @tjtech I'll have to investigate further
 21:30:54  jgates513 : if you tried it, did you try the toolbar?
 21:31:26  Scott Shelhart : I'm not a fan of toolbars, but I do use th diigo toolbar
 21:31:42  tjtech : @Scott I went to the tools off the dashboard not sure if it is on the toolbar
