18:59:26 JohnSchinker -> I don't here anything at
19:00:09 JohnSchinker -> I'm getting errors on the
stream on EdTechTalk A
19:00:32 davec0 -> try again?
19:01:05 JohnSchinker -> Hey -- there you are
19:01:45 JohnSchinker -> Sounds good in the stream
19:03:25 davec0 -> http://www.jarche.com/?p=1009 
19:03:40 alicemercer -> Is the skypecast on?
19:04:15 JohnSchinker -> Don't think there's a
skypecast. I'm just listening to the stream
19:04:21 alicemercer -> k
19:04:25 alicemercer -> k
19:05:05 JohnSchinker -> Vista scares me.
19:05:14 davec0 -> oh yes
19:05:16 JohnSchinker -> Our school won't be using
it until summer 08 at the earliest.
19:05:19 davec0 -> i'm very scared
19:06:29 JohnSchinker -> EdTechTalk:
19:06:30 alicemercer -> We just upgraded this
summer to XP at my district, so I'm not counting on the upgrade to Vista happening
19:06:47 davec0 -> i haven't seen any reason to do so
19:06:59 JenM -> EdTechTalk:
19:07:23 JohnSchinker -> XP was huge for us. It
solved a lot of problems. But Vista -- I don't think there's any killer app there.
19:08:03 davec0 -> EdTechTalk:
19:08:15 alicemercer -> I'm an end user, so I don't
know what the advantadge was for the switch to XP. We had to get rid of old
computers. They did get us new ones.
19:08:28 davec0 -> that's an advantage!
19:08:46 davec0 -> EdTechTalk:
19:08:52 alicemercer -> Yeah, I'm not betting
they'll do that again, lol!
19:09:11 JohnSchinker -> We found XP to be a lot
more stable than 98.
19:09:12 alicemercer -> I saw the link that Dave
posted in del.icio.us
19:10:07 JenM -> http://grammar.qdnow.com/ 
19:10:39 alicemercer -> Am I hearing some canadian
chauvanism in those comments on BC?
19:10:40 JohnSchinker -> How do you get the data
back from the other universe?
19:10:45 davec0 -> :)
19:10:48 davec0 -> yay canada!
19:11:02 davec0 -> what if the other university
19:11:07 davec0 -> or goes on vacation?
19:11:10 alicemercer -> Hey, with us as neighbors,
ya gotta stick up for yourselves.
19:11:44 JohnSchinker -> Grammar girls is great.
19:11:54 JohnSchinker -> I've used it to replace
the word nerds
19:12:07 alicemercer -> I didn't get a chance to
grammar girls. what sort of subjects do they cover besides bad (adj) vs. badly
19:12:17 JenM -> EdTechTalk:
19:12:27 alicemercer -> Ah, better for university.
so it's not for elementary, nevermind
19:12:31 JohnSchinker -> You're going to get a lot
of english teachers listening and using specific shows once in a while to illustrate
a point for their classes
19:12:49 JohnSchinker -> Alice: she did lay vs lie
19:13:07 alicemercer -> OH that is a SPECIFIC
standard in California for fifth.
19:13:12 JohnSchinker -> My high school english
teachers were excited about it
19:13:13 alicemercer -> Maybe I'll do that for test
19:13:41 JohnSchinker -> "lie down sally, and rest
you in my arms..."
19:13:47 JenM -> To find the links for tonight's
webcast click here http://del.icio.us/edtechtalk/20070211 
19:13:58 davec0 -> EdTechTalk:
19:14:34 JohnSchinker -> I read your blog, Dave
19:14:49 JohnSchinker -> I'm looking for wp themes
that are good for elementary school teachers and kids
19:14:55 JohnSchinker -> They're hard to find --
thanks for the link
19:15:04 JohnSchinker -> Jen: Wordpress rocks
19:15:29 alicemercer -> I already had freshy, which
is VERY flexible: http://mizmercer.edublogs.org 
19:16:16 JenM -> http://www.senduit.com/ 
19:16:17 JohnSchinker -> WP is clean and simple.
There's practically no learning curve to it.
19:16:19 alicemercer -> Question on WP themes on
edublogs, can you port in other themes without buying premium
19:16:26 JohnSchinker -> It's perfect for teachers
who don't want to be web designers
19:16:58 alicemercer -> Hey more info on the
19:17:29 JohnSchinker -> http://www.podpress.org/ 
19:18:09 alicemercer -> works with edublogs?
19:18:27 JohnSchinker -> Don't know if it works
w/edublogs. It's a plugin for WP2
19:18:33 JenM -> EdTechTalk:
19:18:48 JohnSchinker -> Which I think they're
using over at edublogs. So if you can install plugins, it should work
19:18:51 JenM -> http://www.chinswing.com/

[8:18:42 PM] Worldbridges says: http://www.chinswing.com/ 
19:19:38 alicemercer -> Yeah, they are using an
anarchy plugin that seems REALLY fussy about the MP3 format.
19:19:50 davec0 -> EdTechTalk:
19:19:59 alicemercer -> but it might also be the
"free" (worth every penny) hosting I'm doing on filexoom
19:20:42 JenM -> EdTechTalk:
19:21:01 JohnSchinker -> They are the same. I
checked with Color Cop (#787878)
19:21:15 davec0 -> wow
19:22:22 JenM -> http://www.change.org/ 
19:22:28 JohnSchinker -> Why the usb drive? You
could just pass out cds for pennies a disk.
19:22:36 JenM -> http://www.ning.com/ 
19:22:38 alicemercer -> All in one place
19:22:49 alicemercer -> THANK YOU for the change.org
19:23:13 alicemercer -> DH works at a np and I
share stuff with him.
19:23:36 alicemercer -> I'm think change.org could
19:23:55 davec0 -> DH...
19:24:01 davec0 -> dear husband?
19:24:06 alicemercer -> yep

pipes looks interesting
19:28:02 JenM -> EdTechTalk:
19:28:43 davec0 -> EdTechTalk:
19:29:04 alicemercer -> Oh, how I wish I had budget
for this stuff...
19:30:04 alicemercer -> Hey, when I started working
with PC I had some legacy programs that were on Bernoulli drives
19:30:16 alicemercer -> So long ago...
19:30:59 JenM -> EdTechTalk:
19:31:07 alicemercer -> Uses bernoulli principles
19:31:40 alicemercer -> They are REALLY big
floppies, that have some air cushion to speed them up (still WAY slow)
19:31:50 alicemercer -> They were like 8x 11 long
19:31:53 JenM -> EdTechTalk:
19:33:44 alicemercer -> EdTechTalk:
19:33:57 JenM -> EdTechTalk:
19:33:59 alicemercer -> EdTechTalk:
19:34:25 davec0 -> EdTechTalk:
19:35:00 alicemercer -> ? How do you contribute a
19:35:29 JohnSchinker -> tag it in del.icio.us with
19:35:31 alicemercer -> link is to the floppy story

19:39:01 alicemercer -> what did they put on MySpace?
19:39:13 JohnSchinker -> Jeff: we use network
solutions, but only because my predecessor set it up -- I wouldn't pick them if I
19:39:49 JohnSchinker -> I use godaddy for my
personal domain, but only because I got a free registration
19:40:03 JohnSchinker -> Web 2.0: everyone gets to
19:40:10 JenM -> EdTechTalk:
19:40:22 JenM -> EdTechTalk:
19:40:23 JohnSchinker -> It's what the web was
supposed to be from the beginning, but with a lower learning curve
19:40:25 alicemercer -> Interactive vs Passive?
19:40:38 JenM -> EdTechTalk:
19:40:40 JohnSchinker -> the web isn't a library
19:40:51 alicemercer -> Any of these definitions
seem fine to me?
