19:03:25 PeggyG: I love the format of the show--new links and commentary are always helpful!
19:03:27 mrsdurff: we like it or we wouldn't be here
19:03:32 jackiegerstein: I think there is just too many live webinars, elluminate sessions, Second Life events in the metaverse now

19:04:16 jackiegerstein: I still like hearing all of the links - what I am saying is that it is not the format but just lots out there
19:04:36 mrsdurff: i look forward to getting together with everyone
19:05:08 PeggyG: the conversation always enhances the shared links, even if you haven't had a chance to explore them in depth before you share them
19:05:15 sheila: So is audio going in and out for others or is it just me. (oh,no I hope not)
19:05:20 jackiegerstein: LOL - folks are jumping on the text color change because they can in this chat!
19:05:26 PeggyG: audio is good for me Sheila
