Women of Web 2.0.18
March 13, 2007

Well fans, join the Women of Web 2.0, Jen, Sharon, Vicky and Cheryl as we interview Chris Harbeck and Jeanne Simpson. It was March 13, 2007, the Nicecast gremblins took over and quit out of SKYPE a couple of times. Then the guardian angel Jeff Lebow, stepped in and helped with the stream and recording. THANKS to Jeff. Anyway, the lesson/moral of the story is......try something new, there is always a safety net out there to catch you! The content of the show, in spite of the glitches, is incredible. Where else can you hang out on a Tuesday evening and get such great staff development. Thanks to Chris and Jeanne for their expertise and classroom examples. You are the pioneers and our heros. There are a number of great links in the chat log. Enjoy.
