 21:53:56  mrsdurff : it's too graphic
 21:54:02  carolteach4 : I think I spelled that wrong. Shame on me - a Mainer exiled in CT
 21:54:14  mrsdurff : :)
 21:54:53  JL : http://eflbridges.net/
 21:55:43  mrsdurff : graham's old site?
 21:56:16  carolteach4 : I've been around for a long time. There was a real push for recycling and renewable resources back in the 70's, and then it kind of went away. I hope we are finally smart enough to keep awareness of preserving resources alive and well.
 21:56:40  JL : Yes, MrsDurff 
 21:57:59  carolteach4 : I am going to try and get some of my kids to comment on the Voice Thread for Earthcast09. That is - when they let us turn the computers back on.
 21:58:18  mjmontagne : aesome carol...let them know their comments will be aired live
 21:59:22  carolteach4 : In the words of David Warlick - "my brain hurts."
 21:59:33  mrsdurff : so did we say where in SL earthcast will  be?
 21:59:39  mjmontagne : Jose!!!
 21:59:41  Jason R : Just kidding, pro bono
 21:59:49  carolteach4 : I just lost the audio - what's up?
 21:59:50  mrsdurff : Jose?
 22:00:00  mrsdurff : i did too
 22:00:00  carolteach4 : It's cutting in and out.
 22:00:10  Jason R : I'll be making files for the logo available soon. 
 22:00:17  mrsdurff : someone tripped over a wire
 22:00:24  mrsdurff : back
 22:00:50  mrsdurff : they could be killing their 'puters
 22:01:03  carolteach4 : Oh, I see the Second Life fly over - maybe that's what happened. That's cool.
 22:01:07  mrsdurff : opn ustream
 22:01:19  mrsdurff : that's in SL
 22:01:26  mrsdurff : with audio
 22:01:31  mrsdurff : see it carol?
 22:02:01  carolteach4 : yes, durff, very cool, but the audio keeps cutting in and out -
 22:02:10  mrsdurff : not mine
 22:02:20  mrsdurff : you're seeing SL
 22:02:34  mrsdurff : are you in SL?
 22:03:08  mjmontagne : @Jason...I haven't seen the invoice for the Earthcast promo work! :-)
 22:03:11  carolteach4 : I have a avatar in Second Life, but I have to confess that the program confounds me. I haven't taken much time to explore it.
 22:03:39  mrsdurff : ISTE is a great place to visit
 22:03:49  mrsdurff : very friendly to everyone
 22:04:05  mrsdurff : usually someone there on duty
 22:04:08  carolteach4 : My character is Katharine Densh. I found my way there through ISTE, but I would need one-on-one training.
 22:04:25  mrsdurff : ask them
 22:04:33  s Adams : I can now sit in SL! 
 22:04:36  carolteach4 : Last time I logged in, I was all alone, and I was totally lost.
 22:04:54  Jason R : Wanted to do a quick shout out 
 22:06:18  Jason R : About oftheblue.com
 22:06:25  mrsdurff : Jason is shouting?
 22:06:54  carolteach4 : echo?
 22:07:04  mrsdurff : i don't have one
 22:07:18  JL : you might be listening to shoutcast and Ustream
 22:07:28  mrsdurff : but it is after 10pm and i may turn into a pumpkin seed
 22:07:48  mrsdurff : i bid you all adieu
 22:07:55  s Adams : I hear you Durff! Hate being on the east coast at this time
 22:10:33  James Sigler : I'm trying out rebroadcasting audio through my Ustream.  It is working? http://www.ustream.tv/channel/global-frig-door-show 
 22:10:52  Jason R : coralnotesfromthefield.blogspot.com/2009/03/podcast-of-blue-1.html
 22:11:09  Jason R : http://coralnotesfromthefield.blogspot.com/2009/03/podcast-of-blue-1.html
 22:11:34  Jason R : Maybe someday will have a live component
 22:12:09  Jason R : This is why we have academies...
 22:14:33  carolteach4 : Thanks, guys. I've been at my laptop for about 2.5 hours, so I'd better bid adieu, as well. This is addictive, however. Thanks again for all the support, and I'm looking forward to Earthcast09. I'm going to put a link to it on my blog.
 22:14:47  carolteach4 : Lost the audio again.
 22:14:58  s Adams : @CArol glad you joined us!
 22:15:15  carolteach4 : Me, too. Good night.
 22:15:25  s Adams : I'll be doing a quiz on Earthcast from noon to 1 pm if you are interested with kids.
 22:15:30  s Adams : missed her
 22:15:43  JL : <04/16/09@21:10:09> [source] no data (30s timeout). disconnecting.
 22:18:22  s Adams : matt - has anyone done a press release for EC09?
 22:18:42  mjmontagne : no on the press release sheila...not a bad idea. 
 22:21:14  Jason R : Re: Webcast Academy, still interested in trying out Mac apps and streaming
 22:21:39  s Adams : Heading out! Thanks so much all!
 22:22:11  mjmontagne : bye sheila

Thanks for posting the show

Thanks for getting the stream posted, Doug. It's a real rush to see my name as part of the show. I'll be at school this Thursday evening(May 7,2009) photographing the spring concert. Hopefully, I'll get home in time to catch some of the show. I am learning so much from EdTechBrainstorm, Teachers Teaching Teachers,Women on the Web, Seedlings, etc. I've also finally embraced Twitter, and I'm learning so much from the links provided by the educators I'm following. Thanks again for your wonderful resource. I also want to add that another teacher and a number of students from my middle school added their voices to the EarthCast09 Voice Thread. I wasn't sure it was going to work, but WE DID IT! P.S. The idea of having "lab time" on the show sounds great. I need some help with getting my kids connected with other students outside our walls.
