10:19:25 andrewjfarmer -> I have a question for the "prolific pioneers"; since Sarah and Mike are so active in video based ELL I wondered about your feelings on crowd sourced (amateur) subtitles to supplement the videos.
10:20:42 michaelc -> halogen

10:33:49 PeggyG -> which video sites are not blocked in your school Jose?
10:34:22 JoseRodriguez -> not blocked.. well vimeo.. blip.tv
10:34:31 JoseRodriguez -> ustream..
10:34:59 PeggyG -> very interesting Jose--ustream not blocked but youtube is blocked??
10:35:02 JoseRodriguez -> anything that teenagers don't use.. :D
10:35:42 JoseRodriguez -> or hogs up the network.. We are able to use skype / skype video / etc.. as long as we are below the radar
10:36:47 PeggyG -> I've had great success uploading video to blip.tv
10:37:50 michaelc -> wow - that's a heap of time!!!
10:38:14 JoseRodriguez -> I love using blip.tv and how you can use embeds for your own blogs
10:38:15 PeggyG -> that's a full time job!!
10:38:31 JoseRodriguez -> the quicktime video files are very light also
10:39:04 Carlos Raul -> It's a lot of love, also.
10:39:17 PeggyG -> yes I love how easy it is to embed blip.tv in blogs! but I guess that's true for any video that has an embed code
10:39:59 michaelc -> :)
10:40:23 michaelc -> good point Jeff
10:40:31 PeggyG -> accents are interesting! no accent in AZ except with people who move here from other places :-)
10:40:57 JoseRodriguez -> It's funny peggy..
10:40:58 michaelc -> non-native speakers are after all the majority
10:41:11 PeggyG -> so true michaelc!
10:41:16 Carlos Raul -> You're right, Michael.
10:41:30 JoseRodriguez -> accent is anyone that doesn't speak like ME>>> :D
10:41:37 michaelc -> LOL
10:42:26 PeggyG -> with so many shows for Sarah I wonder how she keeps track of what she's already done when she produces a new show??
10:42:32 JoseRodriguez -> andrew we are in the eflbridges chatroom
10:42:44 JoseRodriguez -> doubleclick to get in with the rest of us..
10:42:45 andrewjfarmer -> oh thanks
10:42:59 Carlos Raul -> Sarah, you must be single to do all what you do.
10:43:04 JoseRodriguez -> welcome andrew
10:43:19 JoseRodriguez -> Hi Francisco..
10:43:26 andrewjfarmer -> I have a question for the "prolific pioneers"; since Sarah and Mike are so active in video based ELL I wondered about your feelings on crowd sourced (amateur) subtitles to supplement the videos.
10:43:57 PeggyG -> thanks for rephrasing my question JL! exactly what I wanted to know :-)
10:44:01 patxigu -> Hi, a tutti
10:44:04 JoseRodriguez -> subtitles.. as in translation.. or transcription?
10:45:06 andrewjfarmer -> well, if on screen subtitles are available for videos, they can be used by different levels of students
10:45:07 PeggyG -> is there a sequence to the content or can you view them in any order?
10:45:42 PeggyG -> do either of you use the dot.sub subtitled videos?
10:46:59 michaelc -> LOL
10:47:12 michaelc -> LOL
10:47:30 JoseRodriguez -> dot.sub is a good option...
10:47:33 michaelc -> Quote of the session: "I have no business model!"
10:47:40 Carlos Raul -> Does any of you know of a tutorial to add subtiltles to videos?
10:48:35 PeggyG -> you can easily add text to ustream videos when you are streaming--otherwise I only know about dotsub.com
10:48:40 Nina Liakos -> I always wondered whether all businesspeople had "business models" and "business plans"
10:48:46 Nina Liakos -> I guess not! :-)
10:48:57 Carlos Raul -> Thanks Peggy.
10:49:13 michaelc -> Jeff - what's World Bridges business model? :)
10:49:22 Nina Liakos -> LOL I HATE that (everyday)
10:49:45 PeggyG -> I guess no translations are ever perfect??
10:49:56 andrewjfarmer -> thanks for the question
10:50:00 JoseRodriguez -> My guess... as in worldbridges.. is that we were looking for the answer from Mike and sarah..
10:50:56 JoseRodriguez -> good answer...
10:51:07 andrewjfarmer -> I was going to say the same thing!
10:51:09 michaelc -> thanks Jeff
10:52:34 PeggyG -> is a "business model" a plan for making it self-supporting or profit-making?
10:53:09 PeggyG -> what an exciting life of travel Mike!
10:53:36 PeggyG -> love that!! child of hippies :-)
10:53:52 marialbers -> And how many things you should have learn in those years of travel!!
10:54:31 PeggyG -> it's Sarah's show so she can do whatever she wants :-)
10:55:23 Carlos Raul -> I would like to do what Sarah and Mike do but in Spanish. would that be taken as plagiarism?
10:55:25 andrewjfarmer -> both Sarah, Mike, Jeff and Jose have chosen to use powerful Internet tools to assist in ELL and I truly believe, international communication and undertanding. You all deserve a pat on the back and we should work together to make sure that anyone with an interest in ELL, as a teacher or a student can find and engage with the awesome content you prodcue.
10:55:47 PeggyG -> I agree Andrew!!
10:56:37 andrewjfarmer -> cheers Peggy
10:57:26 Nina Liakos -> It's wonderful that you both offer these fabulous resources to the ESL/EFL community and students
10:57:27 JoseRodriguez -> thanks.. andrw
10:57:47 andrewjfarmer -> thank you
10:58:16 PeggyG -> this has been a fantastic conversation! thank you so much for sharing your stories!
10:58:40 JoseRodriguez -> so.. how can we make efl content viral?
10:59:21 PeggyG -> very interesting observation Sarah
10:59:36 patxigu -> PArdon, meeting Hidalgo, EDUCACION EXPANDIDA is now? here?
10:59:44 PeggyG -> I guess entertainment videos are more popular than learning sites??
10:59:49 Nina Liakos -> No, this is EFLBRidges
11:00:05 patxigu -> ok!! Nina!! Thanks!!!
11:00:59 Nina Liakos -> I have to leave now--thanks to all for providing this interview (next time let us know a bit earlier pls!)
11:01:10 michaelc -> Me too folks
11:01:10 JoseRodriguez -> patzigu.. that webcasts starts in an hour.. http://puentesalmundo.net/radioweb2.0 
11:01:18 michaelc -> Delightful session – thank you both for your time and wonderful work. And for excellent facilitation Jeff.
11:01:25 PeggyG -> yes we need to spread the word!! :-)
11:01:50 PeggyG -> excellent interview questions Jef!
11:02:16 PeggyG -> please come back Sarah and Mike!
11:02:25 andrewjfarmer -> thanks from Osaka from Andrew Farmer!
11:02:31 Carlos Raul -> Thank you Jeff, Jose, Sarah, and Mike for this successful session.
11:02:33 JoseRodriguez -> Thanks Jeff.. great webcast..
11:02:35 michaelc -> Bye everyone
11:02:36 andrewjfarmer -> cheers Jeff
11:02:50 PeggyG -> wonderful webcast! definitely worth waking up early for!!
11:03:54 PeggyG -> I love that "passion" is such an important word for all of you! You are great models for this!!
11:03:55 Carlos Raul -> Clap, clap, clap
11:04:10 andrewjfarmer -> I truly enjoyed this, thanks.
11:04:25 PeggyG -> thank you everyone!
11:04:26 mod -> http://webcastacademy.net/ 
11:04:28 JoseRodriguez -> bye all.
11:04:44 JL -> skype 'worldbridges' to join the conversation
11:05:08 Carlos Raul -> Oops! Transmission is off.
11:09:58 andrewjfarmer -> I am sure Sarah will vouch for this comment; Japanese Internet users tend only to stay in the realm of the Japanese Internet
11:11:08 andrewjfarmer -> Japanese keywords and if possible, subtitles are the only way to initially connect with Japanese students
11:11:12 patxigu -> Ok!! Jose Rodriguez!!MAny Thanks
11:13:57 andrewjfarmer -> I think having downloadable scripts make it much easier for hungover teachers to access the medium of online video and use it in the classroom
11:14:51 andrewjfarmer -> I feel, through experience, that video truly captivates students and the motivation to study comes from within
11:17:07 andrewjfarmer -> Here is the thing; we have the two most prolific producers of ELL video content in the history of the Internet online live now and most likely, only teachers watching
11:17:21 andrewjfarmer -> how do we get students involved?
11:21:05 andrewjfarmer -> great answer Sarah
11:21:58 andrewjfarmer -> YouTube videos are usually blocked in Japanese schools
11:22:17 andrewjfarmer -> Great Jeff, Saah and Mike
11:23:38 tdes -> :) Thank you.
11:23:46 tdes -> Goodbye.
