: I'm going to reboot my machine - stream will go down for a few minutes and then we'll be back ready to go on live
: roger that
: Hey Jeff, I was hoping that I'd be able to join in this morning , but I'm not going to be able to hang around unfortunately
: channel 2 works too or you play just a recording there?
: both are a recording now
: Channel 2 is just lower bitrate
: Hey Jeff , I was hoping to join in this morning but unfortunately can't hang around
: Sorry to hear that. We'll be scheduling a couple of 'labs' this week - any day/time preferences?
: Wednesday is good
: me too 512
: I really want to find out how to do this webcasting stuff
: cool Brad
: when there's a will, there's a way
: exactly Jeff
: what time wednesday?
: well, Id better go now, going into school with my wife to help her setudentrs set up some more blogs
: 1am GMT is good for me
: Have a good Monday
: ohhh there is a recording going on right jeff?
: Still Sunday night there Jeff?
: That might be doable
: going live very soon
: yes, still Sunday
: i was listening thinking it was live :)
: stupid feeling now :D
: Alright have a good one guys, I'll keep an eye on the time schedule
: we need to find a good way to let people know if it's live or not
: talk to you later Brad
: bye Brad
: take care
: well, maybe just putting info in the name of the stream in Winamp or whatever software ppl use
: Yeah, Sam can automatically create a 'What's Playing' page, but I still haven't been able to configure it to show live detials
: hi Lee
: hi lee and conrad
: hi Dave
: I was in another part of the academy space updating my intern info
: April 10th :D already at my place :)
: I am glad to be part of the first round
: My kids have started blogging like kids do already
: I have not even talked to them about how to blog politely!
: what age group Lee?
: So they have some so so stuff started
: I will need to show them what to do with this
: Thats what the personallearning space is about
: Mentor these kids so they understand the incredible power of the net and this type of group connection and things like you and we are doing together.
: Are you guys afraid that blogging, myspace and all the similar things are starting to substitute the real life of kids?
: absolutely not ... if you don't mind me jumping in!
: HI :)
: are you, Conrad?
: well, a little bit
: No I dont think it is substituting real life
: it enhances it
: well, it takes time and you can see that kids spend more and more time in front of the PC instead of outside
: and that's one part what influences obesity, isn't it?
: yes pc's and tv's are couch potatoe-ville but...
: ok but you said myspace- now you're talking about all screens and all books and all things that are not outside..
: learning to balance things is part of what parents and friends and teachers are supposed to teach them how to do that.
: i'm talking about the new technology
: i agree Lee
: yes, I agree too
: for instance, here in the middle of Manhattan, it's not very easy for a teen girl to play ball whether or not myspace exists...
: I know growing up we spent allll our time outside
: there was very little to do inside during a nice day after school or weekends aside from saturday morning cartoons
: how about youth centers? I used to work for American Youth center myself
: I spent some time outside and a lot of time reading and sewing and cooking with my mother. My father was a swimmer but my mother had a slipped disk and was never very comfortable with any sports so it wasn't a bit part of my life... even way before computers!
: wow Lee- the opposite for me... there were always amazing projects going on inside- my father and brother spent hours and hours building a model train table that eventually caused the living room to relocate to the family room!
: wow, it is interesting
: how come no one tuned in?
: The kids today need to just understand and learn how to use their imaginations \
: haha :D
: one is the loneliest number
: correct Lee, but media like PC and movies visualize things for kids, no need for creative imagination anymore
: Hey Susan
: welcome back susan
: hey everybody
: well... when i put out all the legos and the speilburg (SP?) movie maker and lego kit and the video camera ... the kids went crazy... waiting to play!
: I think if we give them a cool "playroom" to create in we will see the imagination kick in.
: that can be a sewing circle, model train table, the art room at school orrrr... an online or computer space with cool apps to play with and someone to show them how
: where is room 8?
: Hi Best buddiesgirl
: it was LIVEWIRE jeff
: hi paul

: I am talking to Jeff about what we dont want
: hate stuff, x rated etc
: is there a trick to obtaining audio on a mac. when a click on either icon below I get an error and get kicked off
: i have a mac
: click on the black speaker
: it will open your itunes
: try realplayer link maybe
: i do too teb - click on the channel 2 - that worked for me
: or open your itunes then click on the black speaker in the listen box
: ok- question - why do you have to kill the chat to talk with you on skype?
: it creates a loop
: yes- it opened in my itunes
: an audio loop that ends up in an endless echo
: kill chat? just kill the listening stream
: no chat is fne
: ahhh so you can watch the chat and skype at the same time?
: kill the listen channel
: anyone wanna skype in?
: that's right susan
: when you go into skype you can not have the listen channel on

: you sound the same Susan
: I'm a PC neanderthal, ya'll, is Live365 an acceptable alternative, per the site?
: Susan I might reboot completely and try again
: Jeff, wouldn't it be more convienient to creat few channels streams, set up meetings with at least one person who does already webcasting and has some experience and break it into groups
: creat groups for mac users and pc users, etc?
: this sounds so good 4 me
: you all sound like yr in the next room
