Women of Web 2.0 Show #44

Week 44, WoW 2.0, Cheryl, Jen, Vicki and Sharon are joined by Dianne Hammond, from yesican-science.ca for an evening of online collaboration that is out of this world! Why? Because it is a project where you and your class can blog with an astronaut from the Internation Space Station.

SKYPE gave us a little echo at the beginning of the show, for FREE!

Come learn some more.

Chat, and all the great links.

21:18:15 sharonp EdTechTalk: a blogging astronaut!? how cool!

21:18:17 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: I think that wouldn't be a global collaborative project but rather would be a ...

21:18:17 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: FROM THE SPACE STATION

21:18:25 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: that is just out of this world!

21:18:27 dgoodman_1958 EdTechTalk: thanks for tips on using chat while listening

21:18:37 sharonp EdTechTalk: jeepers, if an ASTRONAUT can blog, what is preventing administrators???

21:18:56 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: see you thanks for stopping by

21:19:00 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: These types of partnerships have got to become something that everyone does... the ceo, the astronaut and for goodness sakes the principal.

21:19:10 sharonp EdTechTalk: outer space high!

21:19:17 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: That is amazing that the media isn't picking up on it.

21:19:18 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: lol

21:19:59 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: sitting listening with my middle school daughter...she loves the idea and wants her school to join in

21:20:01 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: People won't write about teachers unless they are sleeping with their students.

21:20:05 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: this is ridiculous!

21:20:14 Megan EdTechTalk: Astronauts and their space agencies have a long history of working with schools. I see the blogging as a natural extension.

21:20:14 sroseman EdTechTalk: Is the OCDSB involved, Diane?

21:20:31 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: It is fascinating that someone in outerspace can blog.

21:20:32 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: Hi Lisa and her daughter, is she a woman of web 2.0 yet?

21:20:38 dea conrad-curry EdTechTalk: School are obsessing over misuse of technology rather than opportunities for beneficial use.

21:20:51 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: sells papers and tunes in viewers

21:20:52 sroseman EdTechTalk: agreed

21:20:56 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: hi christine

21:20:56 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: tsk tsk

21:21:02 ChristineSouthard EdTechTalk: Hiya

21:21:02 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Fascinating! That is amazing that he is blogging from space.

21:21:04 Kristin Hokanson EdTechTalk: old hat....kids talking to SPACE....seriously MY mind is blown

21:21:08 ChristineSouthard EdTechTalk: Where are you streaming from?

21:21:17 sharonp EdTechTalk: am chuckling over the Canadian news comment - yeah, like we have SUCH exciting stuff happening here!

21:21:18 karen janowski EdTechTalk: Hi, Lisa's daughter! Do you use tools like this in middle school?

21:21:21 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: I think the excuses need to go out the window.

21:21:32 Megan EdTechTalk: I think the lack of coverage in mainsteam press is due to a lack of space coverage in general.

21:21:41 mmiller EdTechTalk: Lisa's daughter what is your favorite tech part of school?

21:21:42 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: It is time to connect more and more in ways we cannot understand but ways that need to happen -- it gives meaning, purpose, and relevance.

21:21:42 Megan EdTechTalk: Remember when a space shuttle launch was actually news?

21:21:49 Kristin Hokanson EdTechTalk: where on the site is is blog?

21:21:57 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: hi Darren

21:22:03 sharonp EdTechTalk: I mean I heard the big news today was that there may not be enough pumpkins for Hallowe'en this year

21:22:04 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: hi drape

21:22:06 Durff EdTechTalk: hi darren

21:22:08 D Draper EdTechTalk: Helloooooo.

21:22:36 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: http://iss07.yesican-science.ca/Blogs/

21:22:44 Megan EdTechTalk: Vicki: I hear you. But what's in it for the business people who participate? I think that showing them the WIIFM will help.

21:22:49 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: This is the astronaut that is blogging from space with students.

21:22:50 Durff EdTechTalk: sharon - who really care about pumpkins?

21:23:17 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: Grins -- I care about PUMPKINS

21:23:23 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Look at our world -- astronauts are blogging, revolutionaries are blogging -- what power of connection and sharing is ours!

21:23:25 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: Colleen cares about PUMPKINS

21:23:26 D Draper EdTechTalk: Note to self: Durff does not care about pumpkins. I guess I'll be returning my Christmas present.

21:23:27 ColleenK EdTechTalk: Me, too

21:23:30 ColleenK EdTechTalk: LOL

21:23:33 Durff EdTechTalk: besides technospud

21:23:34 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: u ppl amaze me..twitter,,chat..& skype? multitaksing fools

21:23:35 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: And many schools block this. They aren't blocking blogs, they are blocking the outside world.

21:23:35 mmiller EdTechTalk: Alyson loves pumpkins right now they are everywhere

21:23:37 sharonp EdTechTalk: LOL

21:23:53 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: vicki this sounds like a blog post coming out

21:23:59 Durff EdTechTalk: but is it newswothy?

21:24:11 sharonp EdTechTalk: Darren, you must be wondering what the heck we are talking about! the banality of the media coverage - pumpkins are more important than blogging astronauts

21:24:12 Kristin Hokanson EdTechTalk: [sharonp] jeepers, if an ASTRONAUT can blog, what is preventing administrators??? OH SHARON YOU ARE SO FUNNY!!!!!!

21:24:26 Durff EdTechTalk: amen kristin

21:26:34 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: trying vicki

21:26:44 D Draper EdTechTalk: Hmmmm. @Vicki - then you think that you have to be a connector to be a good teacher?

21:26:50 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: We should be connecting our students with the world and there are more free resources than available ever efore.

21:26:51 Durff EdTechTalk: hi sue hi njtech

21:26:53 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: Darren let us know if all makes sense w/o sound

21:27:01 D Draper EdTechTalk: You're doing good.

21:27:03 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: I would hate to write a formula for a good teacher.

21:27:07 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: hi ann

21:27:20 joycevalenzz EdTechTalk: yeah, I have sound!!!

21:27:24 njtechteacher (ann) EdTechTalk: hi, is there audio tonight?

21:27:27 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: ask Jen about that Vicki

21:27:28 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: However, I believe that an essential element moving forward is our ability to connect with others. We connect to the world -- we help make connections in the brain.

21:27:29 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Yes.

21:27:32 sroseman EdTechTalk: I am disappointed to see no Ottawa schools involved http://iss07.yesican-science.ca/Participants/

21:27:34 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: yes there is audio

21:27:37 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: lol

21:27:38 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: We have audio -- can you not find it.

21:27:39 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: her idea of good teacher

21:27:41 Durff EdTechTalk: i often wonder if i am doing enough to connect learners...

21:27:45 D Draper EdTechTalk: I agree, Vicki.

21:27:46 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: hey christine

21:27:51 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: even though it says no stream, click on one of the choices

21:27:56 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Oh, Durff, you are connecting.

21:27:57 ChristineSouthard EdTechTalk: I'm back :)

21:28:03 Kristin Hokanson EdTechTalk: UGH

21:28:04 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: I'm almost killing myself conecting -- it is very hard now.

21:28:14 Kristin Hokanson EdTechTalk: Vicki ME TOO

21:28:16 lori.sheldon EdTechTalk: by being connected we are teaching to the times

21:28:19 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: It is hard to get started. It is hard to learn the practices -- not a lot of standardization yet.

21:28:21 D Draper EdTechTalk: Too few teachers take the time/effort to connect - and far fewer provide connections for their students (or allow them to connect).

21:28:21 sharonp EdTechTalk: I don't know of any classes in Quebec, but we are working on that -

21:28:22 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: Here,here

21:28:23 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: my princ says our kids are not all online, but they sure know a lot about Limewire and stealing music

21:28:25 njtechteacher (ann) EdTechTalk: I can't find the link tonight

21:28:32 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: It is so hard to connect.

21:28:33 Kristin Hokanson EdTechTalk: when do we say....there is not excuve for them NOT to make the effort

21:28:40 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Look below the chat room do you see channel a?

21:28:42 Durff EdTechTalk: hi linda

21:28:46 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: now! kristin

21:28:47 sroseman EdTechTalk: and only two schools from Toronto involved

21:29:02 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Can anyone help with the main stream -- I'm not on the stream I'm on skype -- help njtechteacher (ann)

21:29:04 njtechteacher (ann) EdTechTalk: Yes, it says currently not streaming. I'll click there anyway

21:29:10 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Hmmm

21:29:12 Kristin Hokanson EdTechTalk: Vicki mine is fine

21:29:18 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: http://webcastacademy.net/listen

21:29:18 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: Look to the LEFT and click on WORLD BRIDGES

21:29:24 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: I connected that way

21:29:26 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: it will OPEN a new window -- and those USUALLY work

21:29:28 Durff EdTechTalk: try the listen page

21:29:32 ChristineSouthard EdTechTalk: I caught the stream before I entered the chat

21:29:33 Kristin Hokanson EdTechTalk: yes it will SAY not stremaing, but it WILL work

21:29:35 Megan EdTechTalk: I clicked on the stream choice even though it said "not streaming"

21:29:38 mmiller EdTechTalk: http://amiller1.learnerblogs.org/ can you see this blog? I made it for Alyson but I think I made it "private" or something.

21:29:39 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: then open a new page and come back here!!!

21:29:41 Kristin Hokanson EdTechTalk: I use teh black audio

21:29:45 njtechteacher (ann) EdTechTalk: I have it now thanks

21:29:51 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: YEAH!!

21:29:52 Durff EdTechTalk: :)

21:29:53 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: great ann

21:30:02 dea conrad-curry EdTechTalk: Change takes time and lots of support

21:30:03 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: That is true -- teachers often look down on connection projects until they are "knee deep" and then when one gets in there it is like the proverbial apple on the head.

21:30:06 dougs EdTechTalk: http://worldbridges.net:8000/listen.pls

21:30:07 ChristineSouthard EdTechTalk: Hooray

21:30:17 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: that audio issue is why i come in early--very fristrating to not hear to me

21:30:18 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: mmiller, it is password proteccted

21:30:22 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: http://www.ontarioblogs.com/

21:30:27 Durff EdTechTalk: i don't have time - hurry up and change!

21:30:34 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: lol

21:30:37 D Draper EdTechTalk: It's just that connecting can take a lot of time initially. Once you're hooked, though, it's a breeze.

21:30:42 D Draper EdTechTalk: Or a tweet.

21:30:47 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: But each process is so different.

21:30:49 Durff EdTechTalk: yes darren

21:30:50 karen janowski EdTechTalk: have to help my son with his English homework. be back soon

21:30:57 Durff EdTechTalk: hi rbiche

21:30:58 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: bye karen

21:30:59 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: thought it is ONTARIO BLOG -- use this as an idea to JUMP from and host your own perhaps!!!

21:31:06 dea conrad-curry EdTechTalk: I have found that teachers are curious about the growing body of technology, but even if they get initial training, the don't put the time needed into keeping up

21:31:07 ChristineSouthard EdTechTalk: bye karen

21:31:09 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: I'm on Flat classroom, Youth voices, and a collaborative project w/ U Michigan on Middle east conflict.

21:31:09 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: but how do you get teachers to understand taht darren?

21:31:12 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: hi janices

21:31:18 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: And it is overwhelming to learn all of those things.

21:31:25 D Draper EdTechTalk: You're right, @dea conrad-curry

21:31:31 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: You ge teachers to understand by putting them in a collaborative project with other teachers.

21:31:32 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: Dea -- could you change your color -- its hard for me to read -- thank you!!

21:31:37 janices EdTechTalk: Hi Cheryl and all

21:31:37 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: PD needs to go online and become collaborative.

21:31:42 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: hi rbiche and sandy and Linda

21:31:43 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: When teachers collaborate teachers get it.

21:31:44 joycevalenzz EdTechTalk: most teachers have not yet seen the models we consider commonplace

21:31:46 D Draper EdTechTalk: @lisaparisi Force. :)

21:31:49 Durff EdTechTalk: i'm blue

21:31:52 dea conrad-curry EdTechTalk: Better

21:31:57 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: EXCELLENT -- thank you

21:31:58 dea conrad-curry EdTechTalk: I don't see any color

21:31:59 Durff EdTechTalk: $5

21:31:59 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: right joyce

21:31:59 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: i tried...sigh

21:32:01 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: But they should be IN the models -- I think that reading about it isn't enough -- it is being in it.

21:32:03 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: its been a LONG day!!! :)

21:32:05 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: I don't see color either.

21:32:06 alicebarr EdTechTalk: Vivki: What is the U Michigan Middle East Project?

21:32:08 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: i tried to exlain Skype

21:32:13 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: hey janice !

21:32:14 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: i got the blank stare

21:32:17 Durff EdTechTalk: i never see color

21:32:18 sharonp EdTechTalk: Cool Diane - we were just discussing on how to do this here in Quebec! Will point out to the IT directors because I had mentioned that WP could do this!

21:32:23 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Jeffrey Stransburg we had him on a while back -- just a second and I'll post it in.

21:32:24 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: i need to get them to exp skype

21:32:26 dougs EdTechTalk: me neither, re colour

21:32:30 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: i simply explained delicious and twitter today

21:32:31 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: It is just one oftheir incredbile projects.

21:32:32 dougs EdTechTalk: sorry color

21:32:33 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: oh my

21:32:34 JenniferWagner EdTechTalk: http://www.ontarioblogs.com/

21:32:42 dea conrad-curry EdTechTalk: PD does need to be online, but I've developed online training to teach and build classroom wikis...I can't get teachers to commitg

21:32:46 D Draper EdTechTalk: @CathyNelson Try explaining Twitter first next time. Go straight to the "you're crazy". lol

21:32:49 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: http://aic.conflix.org/ - Click on Dossiers and Scenario.

21:32:56 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: true Darren

21:32:57 alicebarr EdTechTalk: Thanks Vicki

21:33:04 Durff EdTechTalk: but i am crazy darren

21:33:10 lori.sheldon EdTechTalk: for me showing was explaining

21:33:12 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Well it is kind of like explaining other things Darren, that we won't mention here -- until you do it it doesn't make a lot of sense.

21:33:13 Durff EdTechTalk: hi simjon

21:33:14 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: hi simon

21:33:18 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: ;-)

21:33:44 Durff EdTechTalk: the power of twitter

21:33:50 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: i may try that tomoorw

21:33:52 Kristin Hokanson EdTechTalk: TWITTER ROCKS!

21:33:54 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: cathyn, we did that in a workshp it was great

21:34:00 D Draper EdTechTalk: This is a smart group! Baby's crying... brb

21:34:00 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: I love google reader -- I've moved out of bloglines to google reader.

21:34:11 dea conrad-curry EdTechTalk: Hey, I am one of those doctoral students and looking for someone to participate in a webcast in October on bringing technology to the classroom

21:34:13 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: poor baby drapper

21:34:14 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: I did that today Cathy. Got lots of twits

21:34:16 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: i can't like google reader as well

21:34:18 Kristin Hokanson EdTechTalk: Vicki I am resisting the hipt

21:34:23 lori.sheldon EdTechTalk: i found out about edtechtalk from twitter

21:34:26 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: my class said...but how do you know who these people are

21:34:26 Durff EdTechTalk: my kids sign up for google reader

21:34:36 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: and they said...how do you have to time to read all this

21:34:40 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Resistin what, Kristen? Did you get my subtle joke?

21:34:50 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: i learned from blogs bout WOWO and ETT

21:34:55 Megan EdTechTalk: Have you checked out the Trends section in google reader? Very cool.

21:34:56 Durff EdTechTalk: parisi = the space bar

21:34:57 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: I use netvibes for my students.

21:34:58 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: wow2

21:35:02 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: Lisap, we know each other by our comments, our favorites, our comments our blogs.

21:35:07 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Oh I'm really getting into google reader - -it is cool.

21:35:10 joycevalenzz EdTechTalk: i like that igoogle plays so easily with google reader--personal info spaces for our kids--they push their research and feed their fish

21:35:15 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: You check people out before you add them.

21:35:28 Linda N EdTechTalk: Why do you like google reader better?

21:35:29 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: im laying w/ using iggole

21:35:31 Durff EdTechTalk: welcome back jen

21:35:38 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: I know cheryl...they want references...

21:35:39 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: It is much easier to read and find thingsl

21:35:39 JenniferW EdTechTalk: sorry --

21:35:42 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: but many widgets are blocked--bummer

21:35:45 JenniferW EdTechTalk: trying to remember how to use TABS

21:35:48 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: I've been playing back and forth for a while but now I'm back to google reader.

21:35:50 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: hi dea

21:35:51 Durff EdTechTalk: it just makes sense to me linda

21:35:53 joycevalenzz EdTechTalk: bummer!

21:35:56 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: we are not allowed to use FF at school

21:36:04 Christine Southard EdTechTalk: I like google reader too

21:36:06 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: FF?

21:36:08 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: but i think IE has a tab feature somewhere

21:36:09 JenniferW EdTechTalk: someone needs to explain Google Reader benefits to me -- it slowed my computer WAY down

21:36:14 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: I've got to do some "work" on my reader and pull my blogroll out of google reader instead of bloglines.

21:36:15 njtechteacher (ann) EdTechTalk: I find twitter really interesting but i'm just getting used to asking people if I can follow them i'm just getting started

21:36:24 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: Jen i don't like it either

21:36:28 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: I hate to leave bloglines but really I just can't keep up with it all there.

21:36:31 Durff EdTechTalk: welcome back rbiche

21:36:37 Christine Southard EdTechTalk: so quick and easy - download alerts me of # of blogs in reader

21:36:39 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: Ann im cathyjo in twitter

21:36:40 sharonp EdTechTalk: I have had to set up a different rss reader for work! Now that is desperate!

21:36:40 tansmom EdTechTalk: so if no google reader then what do you use jen?

21:36:42 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: ann, you don't ask to follow...just do it...

21:36:51 rbiche EdTechTalk: thanks Durff and thanks for the hints

21:36:52 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: Durff thanks for helping with the welcomes it is so important

21:36:53 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: we'll block you if we don't want to be followed

21:37:00 Durff EdTechTalk: $5

21:37:03 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: It is easier to read -- it is easier to use -- I don't know how it would slow it down just during the initial setup - however after it is set up it should pick up speed.

21:37:06 njtechteacher (ann) EdTechTalk: OK - thanks - it feels like I'm intruding on a party

21:37:06 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: look for me ann...lparisi

21:37:09 ColleenK EdTechTalk: Tansmom...didn't see you come in. Hi!

21:37:10 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: put it on my tab

21:37:11 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Set it up and walk away for 30 minutes for it to cache it all.

21:37:19 Durff EdTechTalk: ok cheryl

21:37:22 sroseman EdTechTalk: I am replacing bloglines with Google Reader

21:37:23 tansmom EdTechTalk: hey colleen

21:37:57 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: Hi Tansmom

21:38:00 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: Chris Craft, my SC friend hated it

21:38:01 tansmom EdTechTalk: hey everyone, I am a bit late

21:38:10 janices EdTechTalk: It's hard to change when u get used to something. I changed to Google Reader, but it wasn't comfortable for a while.

21:38:18 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Hated google reader or igoogle?

21:38:22 njtechteacher (ann) EdTechTalk: Google reader is the first one I tried and I really like it

21:38:23 ColleenK EdTechTalk: @tansmon...at least you're here : )

21:38:25 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: transmom, there will be a podcast by friday

21:38:29 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: It is hard to change but I've been going back and forth for six months.

21:38:31 cheryl oakes wow2.o EdTechTalk: you can catch up by then

21:38:31 janices EdTechTalk: Now I love it. Faster and all feeds visible even when read

21:38:37 sharonp EdTechTalk: I am another google girl -

21:38:37 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: The recent changes to google reader have me hooked.

21:38:39 tansmom EdTechTalk: great, thanks cheryl

21:38:42 dougs EdTechTalk: used to have an Office of Learning Technologies too, Canada did

21:38:44 Christine Southard EdTechTalk: I have a firefox download that alerts me of blog posts for reader

21:38:51 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: It automatically marks things as read as you scroll them past your screen.

21:38:54 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: even tho i don't like google rdr, i can see the potential for students to use igoogle and google rdr

21:39:00 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Oh oH christine give us the firefox extension.

21:39:02 njtechteacher (ann) EdTechTalk: I like how I can hide the ones that haven't been updated

21:39:07 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: love igoogle

21:39:13 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: What do you use Cathy.

21:39:20 lisaparisi EdTechTalk: i use igoogle with rss slim reader for all my blogs

21:39:21 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: i use bloglines

21:39:32 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: I always want to have other options -- I rebel against monopoly -- too much of of a capitalizt.

21:39:34 Christine Southard EdTechTalk: I have a lot of Vicki Davis blogs starred in my favs

21:39:35 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: capitalist.

21:39:55 dougs EdTechTalk: too funny Vicki

21:40:02 Megan EdTechTalk: But, Vicki, what's wrong with Microsoft ;)

21:40:04 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: WE should learn that it is important to have diversity.

21:40:05 CathyNelson in SC EdTechTalk: goggle seems to be becoming like a monooly too

21:40:07 Kristin Hokanson EdTechTalk: ha ha VIcki you are CRACKING ME UP ;)

21:40:12 Vicki Davis EdTechTalk: Nothing wrong with Microsoft or Google.

21:40:14 Durff EdTechTalk: sounds liks a romance novel Vicki

21:40:14 njtechteacher (ann) EdTechTalk: There was an article in The Economist about Google being the railroad monopoly of 2000s.
