19:18:35 BronStuckey -> TweetDeck
19:18:44 Alvin Trusty -> Facebook has an app for Twitter.

19:18:48 sharonp -> http://earthinyourhands.earthhour.org/our-earth/
19:18:50 kwhobbes -> @cyndidannerkuhn, can't you set that on Facebook?
19:18:51 BronStuckey -> Or set up the Twitter widget in FB
19:19:49 matt montagne -> that is really, really cool
19:20:03 John Rundag -> New Tweetdeck has Facebook integration.
19:20:12 cyndidannerkuhn -> no clue, I do use TweetDeck, but not sure I see where to make my Twitter go to Facebook
19:20:14 sarah H -> I don't like the feeds though. I FB socially, Twit prof. a few crossover people, one feeds his tweets in and I hate seeing things twice, but don't want to toss him out of either stream.

19:22:48 BronStuckey -> twitter brings me here each week
19:23:09 courosa -> @kwhobbes ... they were out! We ended up at a candy store instead, currently eating Pop Rocks.
19:23:21 sarah H -> 60 minutes headline is "the internet is infected" Can't hear the audio

19:25:49 JohnS -> "I also bought a Curly Wurly which used to be the Wig Wag, I miss the Wig Wag." What are you guys talking about? Do I have to start paying attention to the chat?
19:26:45 sharonp -> http://www.favoritepoem.org/index.html
19:26:47 dave -> "and asked me if i'd give her a ride"
19:26:51 BronStuckey -> Curly Wurly --- mmm - yummo
19:26:58 kaferico -> April is als Math Awareness Month
19:27:16 dave -> April is dave takes a nap month

19:30:00 courosa -> Skype may be releasing iPhone app this week ... maybe.
19:30:28 ujdmc -> and that market is growing daily
19:30:36 BronStuckey -> I am hard wired to Skype these days
19:30:53 John Rundag -> New iPhone app for Blackboard is available.
19:31:15 ujdmc -> yep, use Skype a lot... I also have the Mikogo add-in that allows me to share my screen and share files that integrates well with Skype
19:31:19 kwhobbes -> @JohnR, can you use it on the ipod touch?
19:31:24 gary -> My son has used Skype to phone twice from China - a great saving on phone costs!
19:31:26 ujdmc -> no way
19:31:28 John Rundag -> Yes
19:31:34 courosa -> And I don't think we will ever have the need for any more than 640K.
19:31:45 BronStuckey -> Yes skype makes the world a smaller place
19:32:00 JenM -> john is a hater ... thank you for being the one to say it, Davey
19:32:11 readerdiane -> I missed what was said about phoning from other countries
19:32:13 BronStuckey -> skype is so easy for newbies to take up - intuituve
19:32:17 abevis -> Use Skype personally with family and professionally
19:32:19 courosa -> I think Google is too diluted, that's why these smaller(ish) services thrive.
19:32:20 BronStuckey -> *intuituve
19:32:26 John Rundag -> @courosa Quoting Bill Gates? :) :) :)
19:32:32 BronStuckey -> *intuitive (last time)

19:32:40 matt montagne -> I'm w/u dave
19:32:47 matt montagne -> itunes = horrible
19:32:49 kwhobbes -> Anyone know it you can use the Blackboard with the ipod touch?
19:33:21 BronStuckey -> not ambivalent to Google ruling the world - come on!
19:33:21 ujdmc -> really? you can't figure out how to use iTunes?
19:33:21 Lou -> What Linux program could be used instead of itunes
19:33:21 dave -> http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/9880/miscs.jpg
19:33:21 John Rundag -> Yes you can, @kwobbes. Should be in the App Store.

19:33:29 courosa -> and they got powned!
19:33:33 courosa -> pwned
19:33:55 BronStuckey -> Aussie alert
19:33:57 kwhobbes -> I use itunes all the time. Not that hard to use, @Dave.
19:34:28 Cathy E -> Can you use an iPod with other software?
19:34:44 matt montagne -> is ustream audio dead??
19:34:45 BronStuckey -> itunes is just OK iPhone rocks
19:34:46 dave -> @kwhobbes it's not a very smart program. and it's painfully constructed to make me buy things
19:34:50 ujdmc -> to do what Cathy?
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.
19:35:03 sharonp -> http://www.microsoft.com/student/discounts/theultimatesteal-us/default.aspx
19:35:10 JL -> shouldn't be matt
19:35:16 JL -> others still hearing ustream?
19:35:19 kwhobbes -> @dave - of course - it's an online store!
19:35:27 courosa -> @matt yes,ustream still workign
19:35:28 Lou -> Hmmm - slow to get my chat on (yes hearing it)
19:35:32 abevis -> Audio working fine.
19:35:36 John Rundag -> @Lou Amarok
19:35:42 JL -> gov'ts hacked story - http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/29/technology/29spy.html?partner=rss&emc=rss
19:35:42 dave -> @kwhobbes not 'of course' it doesn't need to work the way it does
19:36:05 kwhobbes -> @courosa - then why do they do it all the time for all our Sask schools!
19:36:10 courosa -> Re: M$, the first hit is always free (cheap)
19:36:17 ujdmc -> this Microsoft discount program has been available for over 4 years
19:36:21 Lou -> Fam taking me out to dinner - thanks for letting me join up to now
19:36:34 ujdmc -> it has nothing to do with the recession
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/
19:39:41 JohnS -> And little Early-Pearly came by in her curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride
19:39:50 JL -> http://cuecast.blip.tv/posts?view=archive
19:39:52 kwhobbes -> Or they are from central office and what you to return the documents as it was sent.

19:43:23 kwhobbes -> Dan Pink? Taught that last semester in my Social 20 class!
19:43:44 John Rundag -> If you say picker in Southern Ohio, it means you play the banjo.
19:43:57 matt montagne -> our school is building a YouTube channel...I think it is going to be a game changer for us
19:44:01 ujdmc -> I can play the banjo but I main play guitar...
19:44:16 matt montagne -> ...in a postive way :-)

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.
