20:29:34 JL: thnks

20:30:53 Gary: Possible future topic (if this has not been done before): There are many teachers who have technology skills that are retiring. Some may have had their first experience with computers using main frame IBM 360’s and cards and used Fortran as a programming lanquage. How could they remain involved in the ed tech community after retirement?

20:39:36 Chris_Craft: I can’t find the skypecast link
