19:34:45  BronStuckey ->  itunes is just OK iPhone rocks

19:35:00  Cathy E ->  get your podcast?
19:35:02  courosa ->  Governments should not be in the business of filtering content; content policing is a slippery slope toward mind policing.

19:36:57  Alvin Trusty ->  Office costs our students $10.  TEN DOLLARS
19:37:00  kwhobbes ->  @dave - itunes is there for people to spend money - the "free" side is to get you there.
19:37:06  courosa ->  They have done this before, this is not really new ... they had the same deal 2 yrs ago. Office apps on the desktop are dead.
19:37:20  sharonp ->  I hear OneNote is quite powerful.....
19:37:32  courosa ->  The desktop OS is next.
19:37:36  ujdmc ->  it is not a "deal" it is an ongoing program that has been going on for over 4 years
19:38:10  ujdmc ->  We rarely have troubles with Office except that it costs money... we have more troubles with other alternatives
19:38:17  gary ->  But even office documents may not be compatible depending on what you use.
19:38:22  sharonp ->  sorry if I shared something old... just thought it was interesting that it included OneNote and a couple others....
19:38:26  kwhobbes ->  @dave - you must be one really crazy guy - so much makes you that way :)
19:38:42  sharonp ->  see, it started a conversation!
19:38:58  abevis ->  What is OneNote?
19:39:01  BronStuckey ->  Ok Curly wurly more interesting than Office
19:39:10  JL ->  http://www.purposegames.com/

19:52:45  BronStuckey ->  I am looking to find a niche to volunteer in TWB
19:53:01  JohnS ->  twbcanada.org
19:53:34  courosa ->  hardware dropping
19:53:37  matt montagne ->  LOL
19:53:55  BronStuckey ->  I am a member of TWB - just looking to find where I can contribute
19:54:20  courosa ->  not just export of laptops, the export of culture ... booo
19:54:30  courosa ->  but yea, but what sharon is talking about, much different
19:55:04  matt montagne ->  I understand Dave's point, but feel as tho the original mission of OLPC is noble
19:55:48  courosa ->  OLPC is so 2005, the current is 2LPC
19:55:59  JohnS ->  *laugh*
19:56:12  dave ->  @matt i think that was more about proving a point (negroponte ect... have been trying to prove the point that 'technology can change culture' since the early 80s)
19:56:59  dave ->  There may have been something noble in the original idea 25 years ago... but I think it was more about bragging rights at the MIT media labs
19:57:36  readerdiane ->  But didn't it push for the cheaper laptops for all.
19:57:38  JohnS ->  still worth it, even if they never actually got one into the hands of a student. they spawned the whole netbook industry.
19:57:52  JohnS ->  That's bringing hardware prices down for everyone.
19:57:56  JL ->  abevis, are you having an existential crisis?  Looks like you tried to ignore yourself :)
19:58:40  dave ->  @readerdiane absolutely. it had a lot of really great side effects. best possible scenario is what happened. it changed the technology, provided a lot of great presss for the kind of stuff Sharon is doing and ultimately failed in selling millions of laptops.
19:59:03  BronStuckey ->  very cool
19:59:36  readerdiane ->  Who supports TWB?
19:59:45  JohnS ->  you do.
