Another in our series of virtual staff lounges. This week we catch up on plans for Earthcast09, the lastest from Roadkill | 2009 and discuss "netbook" computers in education. Thanks to all, and apologies to DonW--only noticed your response after the fact--look forward to having you on next week if you're available.

Joined by the founders of ETT, as JL calls in "because no one else will argue with Dave" regarding his OER post. We also talk about @NancyWhite 's onlinevisualjams

Talk with Dave Cormier about a blog post of his: OERs Shining  Light: new textbook model or harbinger of a new imperialism and the comments it generated. Jeff Lebow joins us (@ the 36:00 minute mark), "because no one else will disagree with Dave" and the brainstorm ensues.
