[lbaber] Well, while we are waiting, may I ask a question?

[dave-on-air] yes

[dave-on-air] what’s your question

[guest_0478a] skype just crashed *(

[Art_Gelwicks] The eternal question…what does it sound like under a beanbag chair…has now been answered.

[lbaber] Noooo

[Art_Gelwicks] They know who has the money.

[lbaber] Not what is going on but,,, on my worldbridges hosted moodle.

[lbaber] I see a list of other courses .. ie. Bob, Graham, Daf..

[lbaber] Is my moodle going to be added to that list when it is up and running?

[lbaber] Ahhh

[lbaber] yea

[lbaber] As you say

daf has joined the chat.

[lbaber] I was just checking to see if I had the correct moodle. I am starting to work on it and was making sure I had the correct Moodle

[guest_0478a] The hammer sound was equally annoying…

[daf] hi everybody

[Art_Gelwicks] Our zen yoga master monitoring our breathing…

[guest_0478a] The Luckinback, Texas episode – Back to the Basics

[daf] lol

[lbaber] Hello Daf!

[daf] hi Lee 🙂

[guest_0478a] welcome back

[lbaber] thanks

[lbaber] So are both of your bios easily found on a site? Jeff and Dave?

[guest_0478a] what do you do when no one asks serious questions?

[daf] any review article about edtechtalk yet?

[lbaber] back up and punt?

[lbaber] I know I am a BIG help.

[guest_0478a] graham might have mentioned it in his recent BBC article.

[lbaber] And you mentioned that they have a version of Access now right?

[guest_0478a] yeah, I heard it works with Access database files! cool!

[lbaber] And those commities become very dependent on some of these open source applications as well!

[lbaber] I totally agree!

[daf] that’s what i feel about webheads

[lbaber] Yep, me too Daf.

[lbaber] Vance agreed Daf.

[daf] yes, I read it at TI 😉

[lbaber] Do you have RSS feeds for those blogs?

[lbaber] DAve, Lee and Steven?

[guest_0478a] http://downes.ca for Steven Downes

[guest_0478a] from there you can find everything else that matters.

[guest_0478a] oops, Stephen not Steven – sorry

[guest_0478a] what is the difference between blogs and chat? Doesn’t chat have an archive too?

[JohnMartin] My thought is that the conversation can be extended well beyond the duration of a chat

[JohnMartin] That and the content can be searched as it is available online. Whereas posting and searching a chat would require tweaking

elderbob has joined the chat.

[guest_0478a] hey ElderBob

[JohnMartin] Welcome

[Art_Gelwicks] Chat is much more real time…blogs are more of a convenience food.

[elderbob] Good Morning

GrahamStanley has joined the chat.

[guest_0478a] there are paperboys in Japan, they ride a scooter!!

[GrahamStanley] there are paperboys in England

[daf] chat and blogs are different, for different purposes

[lbaber] Hi Bob.

[GrahamStanley] Hi Daf

[elderbob] Hey to all….

[daf] starting with, chat is a synchronous tool, while blogs are asynchronous

[GrahamStanley] Hi elderbob

[daf] hi Graham

[lbaber] Hello Graham.

[daf] thanks for your answer to my question 🙂

[GrahamStanley] my pleasure – hope it worked

[daf] I have not had the time to try it out. My dad has been sick and I haven’t had much time left

[GrahamStanley] scott?

[guest_0478a] Hi Graham

[GrahamStanley] aha! using a pseudonym I see!

[daf] Graham, I have included your BBC article on our BaW-06 syllabus, hope you don’t mind

[elderbob] Dave, I got my copy of Ubuntu this week.

[GrahamStanley] that’s great Daf

[elderbob] Im still trying to decide what to do with it.

[daf] deblogging?

[Art_Gelwicks] Much better term.

[GrahamStanley] audio blogging doesn’t have to be podcasting

[guest_0478a] AudioMagazine (audmag)

[GrahamStanley] you can audio blog without having an RSS feed

[dave-on-air] yes, that’s true

[guest_0478a] audmag conveys the idea of subscription (RSS)

elderbob has left the chat.

elderbob has joined the chat.

[GrahamStanley] great to be here

[GrahamStanley] there are lots of blogs without feeds

[GrahamStanley] Blogger blogs have Atom feeds, but you don’t have to turn them on

[daf] that’s right, Graham

[elderbob] I think there is a difference to what some Webheads are doing with Blogs in classrooms and the traditional idea of blogs.

[dave-on-air] true

[guest_0478a] can they be turned off (blogger atom feed)?

[lbaber] such as

[daf] I guess so

[GrahamStanley] yes – check the options on Blogger

[daf] have not tried to turn mine off

[elderbob] Almost “blogs on training wheels.”

[lbaber] Cute

[lbaber] I may draw that thought.

[daf] buzznet, friendster, elgg, and many others have the tag feature

[GrahamStanley] Dave, you’re showing your age now

[daf] lol

[dave-on-air] oh yes?

[lbaber] In the keywords area of Elgg DAve?

[dave-on-air] we youngsters are like that i suppose… what exactly gaveit away?

[daf] csl

[GrahamStanley] Led Zeppelin maybe

[elderbob] It takes a while to really sink in….

[elderbob] but I think you do need to be aware of it.

[daf] every time I add something to my del.icio.us, I think of e-Bob

[daf] after he explored it here

[lbaber] Just use the tools and it starts to make sense

[elderbob] Understanging through use.

[GrahamStanley] I have your del.icio.us feed in my RSS aggregator, elderbob!

[elderbob] Thanks Graham

[daf] I learned to use Moodle on my own

[lbaber] What’s it’s name Bob

[elderbob] Whats that Lee?

[lbaber] your del.icio.us site

[daf] I don’t like them

[daf] they are very static

[guest_0478a] dave can you give us a link for Barbara Sawelle??

[JeffLebow] http://languagelabunleashed.edublogs.org/

[elderbob] http://del.icio.us/elderbob

[daf] a voice board, a guest book, guest map, a whiteboard/groupboard

[elderbob] go to A-9.com and plug in Elderbob and you wiil find just about everything I have ever done.

[elderbob] A very nice summary.

[elderbob] go to moodle.org and look at the samples.

[elderbob] $10.00 per mo or less.

GrahamStanley has left the chat.

GrahamStanley has joined the chat.

[elderbob] If you go to a host who offers Fantastico, there is a good chance, that it will not only host your moodle, but also give you a

[elderbob] choice of CMS, Blogs, Wikis, etc. and also the space to host them.

[guest_0478a] will Fantastico install them as well, ElderBob?

[elderbob] Fantastico is the installer software.dd

[lbaber] Bob, A-9.com does not open..

[elderbob] Pretty much, although you will likely have to do some fine tuning.

[elderbob] I can be.l

[guest_0478a] Don’t tell Dave Winer that!!

elderbob has left the chat.

[GrahamStanley] Atom doesn’t support podcasting does it?

[lbaber] Yes, Mac has been stable and user friendly

[GrahamStanley] Are you a Neil diamond fan, Dave?

[guest_0478a] Love on the Rocks!!

[GrahamStanley] 🙂

elderbob has joined the chat.

[elderbob] This is good news.

[guest_0478a] Right On

[guest_0478a] oh yeah!!

[daf] hi Vance

[daf] sounds good

[guest_0478a] Who’s that breathing? Sounds like a locomotive.

[daf] I haven’t recovered yet from wiaoc

[elderbob] I hope I dont recover from it, but just move on.

[lbaber] Yes was a rush from when the first call to volunteer to the last event on sunday…

[lbaber] It kept us all involved.

[daf] what I really love about wiaoc was the freedom

[elderbob] I doubt that

[daf] the distribution of power

[daf] presenters were given moderators privileges

[daf] the audience could interact freely with the presenters

[daf] I am presenting in an online conference in Feb. and it is completely controlled

JohnMartin has left the chat.

[lbaber] ok, if 25 access it at the same time, does it affect the server?

[daf] I don’t think so, I am teaching a 25-participant course, and nothing has happened

[lbaber] Thanks Daf

[JeffLebow] 25 shouldn’t be a problem,but let us know if you experience any significant slow downs during usage

[lbaber] Is it your center hub for your course…

[daf] I think that the wiki is affected if too many people are editing at the same time

[guest_0478a] question about edublogs wordpress installation…

[guest_0478a] can the html in the templates be modified (beyond changing the visual layout)?

[guest_0478a] similar to the way it can be done in blogger?

[guest_0478a] you guys should get a mascot, call him “Ed Tek”

[dave-on-air] yes. it can scott

[dave-on-air] i think

[dave-on-air] if i understand your question

[guest_0478a] left and righ hemisphere brainstorms

[lbaber] 15A 15B

[daf] lol

[lbaber] 15-Thu 15-Sat

[lbaber] left right wont work… one would be too ehterical and the other too down to earth

[daf] well, folks I need to go, see you around, thanks for everything!!

[guest_0478a] later daf

[daf] h eh

daf has left the chat.

[lbaber] Bye Daf and my thoughts are still on your family… Good luck

bob_sprankle has joined the chat.

[bob_sprankle] howdy!

[JeffLebow] sorry we missed you Bob. Just wrapped up

[bob_sprankle] still having connection problems with you guys… I’m at school, different computer, different connection

[JeffLebow] Thanks for the kind words in your last podcast

[bob_sprankle] 🙂

[JeffLebow] Hmmm… would you like to do a quick skype sound check?

[bob_sprankle] I’m on my laptop…. skype worked fine with Dave last week

[bob_sprankle] I’ll have to listen to this show tomorrow on Podcast

[JeffLebow] So, the connection problem is related to listening to the stream, not skype?

[bob_sprankle] weird… I can hear the show for a bit, and then it drops out…

[JeffLebow] Which media player are you using?

[JeffLebow] Do you have any better luck with the 32k stream instead of the 64k stream?

[bob_sprankle] real player… same prob with both streams… itunes as well

[bob_sprankle] are you guys live right now? or is it the loop?

[JeffLebow] Very strange indeed.

[JeffLebow] I’m hoping to make it down to Nashua Wednesday and catch your presentation

[bob_sprankle] Cool! Have you ever been to the conf? It’s really great

[JeffLebow] Nope. I’d be a first timer

[JeffLebow] Looking forward to it

[bob_sprankle] very cool

[JeffLebow] Look forward to meeting you in person

[bob_sprankle] same here

[JeffLebow] Going to sign off for now… Need to have some breakfast and get to work processing audio. Will think about the connection issue

lbaber has left the chat.

[JeffLebow] Hope to get it figured out eventually

[bob_sprankle] thanks. later

[JeffLebow] Have a great Sunday – hope you manage to get out of school before too long

[JeffLebow] Take care and hope to see you soon

[bob_sprankle] thanks. you too
