19:11:45 matt montagne -> does anyone know where twitter is from?? They seem to be super secret
19:12:01 cyndidannerkuhn -> The desktop clients like Tweetdeck save Twitter
19:12:05 Gary -> @Sharon - because it was before Pownce?
19:12:37 sharonp -> @Gary I think it is one of those interesting questions - why one app flourishes while another dies?
19:12:40 matt montagne -> @sharonP...good quest...why is twitter still alive?? It has so many issues there for a while...
19:12:45 cyndidannerkuhn -> I hope Obama can accomplish it!
19:12:45 dave -> http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28035543/
19:13:22 sharonp -> Pownce had more functionality - could thread comments, no limit to words, etc - seemingly a better wya to build community

19:17:07 mrsdurff -> hey Posie!
19:17:07 Jeff -> http://www.socialmention.com/
19:17:13 matt montagne -> looks a bit like wordpress

19:18:23 mrsdurff -> hey moixland
19:18:35 moixland -> hey mrsdurff
19:18:38 JohnS -> Should textbooks or technology be Texas' spending priority? : http://www.eschoolnews.com/news/around-the-web/index.cfm?i=56230 
19:18:41 sheila -> Heard about that today. NPR. Possible appeal though.
19:19:12 randyn -> or Facebook for that matter
19:19:17 moixland -> hello kindle!
19:19:21 Gary -> It is an innovative idea.
19:19:29 mrsdurff -> so computers don't convey any information
19:19:30 JohnS -> textbook funds must be used for "conveying information." That excludes computer hardware. So they're spending $110 per kid for books this year, and $30 per kid for computers. And the book budget is supposed to double next year.
19:19:33 Gary -> Let the teachers write what they need.
19:19:34 mrsdurff -> who knew?
19:19:44 cyndidannerkuhn -> can you believe the stupidity in Texas, of course George Bush is from there!!
19:20:14 matt montagne -> I believe the policy in many california districts is similar
19:20:17 moixland -> the physics hasn't changed, but what about the pedagogy?
19:20:18 troyapeterson -> Nothing has happened in physics in the last 15 minutes.
19:20:23 mrsdurff -> @cyndidannerkuhn thinking this is probably county wide

19:22:03 mrsdurff -> i will then cyndi after the show - thanks
19:22:11 JohnS -> and we don't want to use AT&T
19:22:20 matt montagne -> my recommendation on iPhone apps:  Don't buy any apps...only go for the freebies
19:22:31 cyndidannerkuhn -> just got an iPhone, love it!!
19:22:35 moixland -> so much of the functionality of the iphone is in the iPod Touch..  with no monthly fee
19:22:37 dave -> http://code.google.com/p/iphoneebooks/wiki/InstallingEBooks
19:22:51 mrsdurff -> AT & T bought Dobson Cellular - hence I am now sadly AT&T

19:23:50 moixland -> 2nd gen touch will do just about everything the iphone will, gary
19:23:53 sroseman -> we have an ipodtouch ... most of the apps work
19:24:06 mrsdurff -> hi kevin
19:24:09 Gary -> You can get an iPod touch using AirMiles
19:24:35 John Rundag -> http://appshopper.com/bestsellers/free

19:27:11 Jeff -> http://cid-f7ea30968c220262.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/EdTechWe...
19:27:33 matt montagne -> there is no comparison b/t the kindle digital ink and the back-lit screens of iPhones and laptops...the kindle is WAY easier on the eyes
19:27:40 JenM -> http://designedtoinspire.com/drupal/node/641
19:27:45 Gary -> But it is WalMart :(

It Was Great to Meet All of You!

Last night was the most feed back we've had from educators all at once. It was GREAT to meet all of you! I'm really passionate about giving teachers as much power to do what they need to do.

I had a great teacher once that helped me take apart and fix a telescope. It didn't have anything to do with his subject, but to this day I tie my interest in science back to that event.

Nibipedia does that by finding your interests and suggesting videos that a student is interested in.

Thank you for having me on and for the feedback. Also, thanks for the heads up about United Streaming which I'm checking out today. Thanks again! Great time!

Also, the site was vandalized a bit last night.(embarrasing but funny.) The bigger the dictionary, the more bad words. We're working on filters. Any bad word recommendations?
