 JohnSchinker  I dont’ know what’s up with the audio
 JohnSchinker  I did try closing a few other things
 JohnSchinker  nope. You’re dropping out when you unmute me, which is odd, too. I’m going to try a quick reboot, since this computer has been on for days.
 JohnSchinker  Do you guys know who Joe McLeay is? That appears to be RubyFire
 dave  you mean Jo… in australia

 JenniferW  and what if First Class
 JenniferW  I want to know WHY I need to log onto delicious in order to submit a tag??? or am I doing it wrong??
 sroseman  it’s our school email system..rather dated
 sroseman  Here is some info on firstClass client http://www.softarc.com/
 arvind grover  lots of schools in new york city use firstclass and swear by iy
 arvind grover  it
 arvind grover  i dont use it but have heard good things…
 JenM  http://youthvoice.net/elgg/
 JenniferW  I dont know if this would help — http://www.xfruits.com/
 JenniferW  it is an RSS and more mixer/masher
 JohnSchinker  http://offog.org/code/rawdog.html
 JL  http://youthvoices.net/
 arvind grover  what is that service, raw dog?
 JohnSchinker  It allows you to grab rss feeds and reformat them in different ways. I use it to generate content for my portal pages internally
 arvind grover  nevermind, i see it
 JohnSchinker  Probably similar to xfruits, though I’m not familiar with it
 arvind grover  cool
 sroseman  speaking of MacWorld I just discovered a social events calendar driven by people just like us!
 JenniferW  xfruits is just a new site I was introduced to this week that allows you to blend a bunch of rss feeds into 1 feed to be viewed
 JohnSchinker  right. neat.
 JenniferW  sorry — its not new, it is new to me
 JenM  xfruits is cool
 Durff  Doing s copyright lesson right now for 7th grade – any suggestions?
 JenniferW  Jen — I have SOOO much to share at CMS Drupal tomorrow night ๐Ÿ™‚
 JenM  oooh! great!
 JenniferW  wow — Lisa — good for you
 JohnSchinker  7th grade — I used to give them a bunch of different scenarios, and ask them which ones were legal.
 JohnSchinker  Then generate a discussion about it.
 Durff  Any help?
 JenniferW  http://www.techlearning.com/db_area/archives/TL/2002/10/copyright_quiz.php
 Durff  Yes, and talk about creative commons too
 JenniferW  Lisa — check that out
 JenniferW  http://www.csus.edu/indiv/p/peachj/edte230/copyright/quiz.htm
 JenniferW  and there is another one
 JenniferW  http://www.copyrightkids.org/quizframes.htm
 JenniferW  and this one is GREAT — http://www.cyberbee.com/cb_copyright.swf
 JenniferW  (if they have internet access)
 JenniferW  Do we have a regular chat at 5pm too??
 Durff  no, but I got that at cyberbee
 Durff  I use a projector with laptop
 Durff  I share it with other teachers
 JenniferW  the other links I gave you are interactive quizes
 JenniferW  it might get a conversation going
 Durff  they can go online later during the day
 Durff  we have to evaluate all sources
 Durff  I made up a story and even the principal bought it
 sroseman  I dig this one..the social animal that I am http://upcoming.org/
 JenniferW  http://teachingtreasures.com.au/Danger%20zone/copyright-activity.htm
 Durff  it was totally bogus
 JenniferW  http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/
 Brad Hicks  so upcoming looks at your location settings on your computer? – cool
 JenniferW  but you only have a 24 hour period to download for free activiation
 JenniferW  the best thing to do is put the feed into you RSS
 JenniferW  NO — I need EdTechTalk!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
 JenniferW  I am calling into skype to complain ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
 JohnSchinker  Can’t do a hangout. You don’t have http://www.edtechhangout.net/
 JohnSchinker  :-)_
 JenniferW  but alas, don’t have the skype callin info
 Durff  I cannot copy and paste these excellent links from this chat room
 Durff  but thank you all!
 JenniferW  Lisa — use your right mouse to help copy save — that is what I have to do at least
 JenniferW  sorry — back track —
 Brad Hicks  cmon Jeff – thought you would have registered it in the last 10 seconds!! ๐Ÿ™‚
 JenniferW  I have to CNTROL C
 JohnSchinker  Thanks guys
 JenniferW  how many names did you say you had???
 JohnSchinker  He said 260
 JenniferW  ohmigosh
 JenniferW  sadness — no edtechtalk
 JenniferW  but CMS tomorrow — COOL
 JohnSchinker  We could do it without them ๐Ÿ™‚
 sroseman  CMS stands for ..out of the loop
 JL  partial list at: http://worldbridges.net/domainlist
 JenniferW  now that was just sad……………
 JenniferW  you needed to have warned me
 JL  content management system
 sroseman  aha
 JenM  see you tomorrow at http://cmsacademy.net/drupal/
 JohnSchinker  definitely an addiction, Jeff, I thought I was bad with two.
 JenniferW  amazing list
 sroseman  Thanks I will get these acronyms staightened out
 JL  For old times sake, I will toss EdTechTalk #1 into the stream
 JohnSchinker  sexbridge.com? Worldbridges is more diversified than I thought
 JenniferW  well off to kill an hour now
 JenniferW  hmmmm — ๐Ÿ™‚
 JohnSchinker  Arvind: where are you? I misssed that when you jumped in.
 arvind grover  new york city
 JohnSchinker  Oh. Yeah. Now I get it.
 JohnSchinker  I’ve heard your show
 JohnSchinker  sorry. I didn’t make the connection
 arvind grover  no prob, glad to meet someone who listens. don’t know how many of you there are ๐Ÿ™‚
 JohnSchinker  I can’t say I always listen, but occasionally, you accompany me to work
 JohnSchinker  You guys were talking about getting better access among your schools.
 JohnSchinker  I considered myself fortunate. We have gigabit between schools, and 100MB to the Internet.
 JohnSchinker  I thought in NYC you’d have tons of bandwidth
 JohnSchinker  Of course, we have other problems, but that’s thankfully not one of them.
 JohnSchinker  It looks like you’ve had a couple recent shows on professional development — I’ll have to check them out. It’s something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately.
 arvind grover  wow, that is a big time connection. we are in the private school world though, you?
 arvind grover  prof dev has been on our minds a lot, especially with the summer coming up (sort of)
 JohnSchinker  public schools
 arvind grover  public schools usually powered by district level connections, we are individual schools buying connections
 JohnSchinker  We got the fiber within the district for free from the cable tv company as part of their franchise agreement.
 arvind grover  nyc public schools have big time connections
 JohnSchinker  Then we just built the network.
 arvind grover  wow
 arvind grover  manhattan has limited fiber
 JohnSchinker  Right. Private schools would probably have a tougher time. Especially with long geography
 JohnSchinker  I was in Manhatten for the first time last summer (very briefly)
 JohnSchinker  We don’t pay any connection fees for our internal network — we just have to maintain the equipment.
 JohnSchinker  I need to go. It was nice chatting with you.
