19:02:27 mrsdurff -> hi

19:30:53 sharonp -> I am finding the conversations fascinating
19:30:58 matt montagne -> I am Kim
19:30:59 JenW -> I am not saying Yes or No yet -- still in the "huh" stage
19:31:01 PeggyG -> everyone on Google  WAVE should join the Worldbridges Wave
19:31:15 sharonp -> right now it is a bit like a listserv
19:31:22 ds -> jury still out on wave - -think it will come into its own on task-based projects
19:31:24 matt montagne -> I'm going to give it an early thumbs down
19:31:36 JenM -> http://www.algebrahelp.com/
19:31:40 JL -> http://googlewaveeducators.wikispaces.com/

19:32:19 ColetteC -> @matt Wave will be helpful with folks I email all the time - like my tech department
19:32:20 JenW -> OH -- that is what they should do --- EdTechTalk and then post show and then seque into WOW2
19:32:22 matt montagne -> @jen...I'm sure it will grow and develop as well...but right now I find it kinda bizzare and not replacing of tools we already have
19:32:28 kcaise -> i have 2 invites left to google wave if anyone is interested! going to highest bidders
19:32:34 doriedance -> me
19:32:35 sr -> me me
19:32:40 PeggyG -> Jose wants one Kim!!
19:32:43 mrsdurff -> quick everyone go invisible
19:32:43 JenW -> @matt -- but it combines a lot of things we do use -- into 1 place
19:32:48 JenW -> Oh Oh
19:32:51 JL -> skype 'worldbridges' to join in
19:33:10 matt montagne -> @collette...I could see that...I just don't see non-techie folks get on board
19:33:11 sharonp -> @matt @JenW I am with Jen - brings much into one platform
19:33:11 doriedance -> finally got sound via ustream
19:33:17 JenW -> I have a question about one site you listed tonight -- but I am going to be a devils advocate -- is that okay??
19:33:20 JL -> or call 1-603-574-4923
19:33:32 JenW -> since you are giving a gift --   :)
19:33:53 mrsdurff -> lol
19:33:53 JenW -> I'm trying to call
19:34:18 matt montagne -> @sharon...it certainly has promise, that is for certain
19:34:47 Gary -> http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/13/health/13klas.html?_r=4&hpw
19:35:18 kcaise -> peggy, how do you join the worldbridges wave?
19:35:22 JenW -> calling
19:35:42 matt montagne -> early research is showing that multi-tasking has a negative impact on learning
19:35:56 PeggyG -> maybe someone needs to invite you?? Sharon added me
19:36:12 kcaise -> okay
19:36:19 kcaise -> i am kcaise on wave
19:36:27 dawn -> Here is a site about other admin who believe in 2.0  http://tweepml.org/?t=1602
19:36:29 Cathy E -> Still waiting for my Wave invite
19:36:42 matt montagne -> did NYTIMES just go to a login model??
19:37:01 JenW -> @cathye -- if you want to log in as me and play -- just drop me a note and you can
19:37:14 kcaise -> i think so matt but i thought it was free
19:37:27 Cathy E -> @JenW - I have missed you
19:37:41 matt montagne -> @kim, it is free...but looks like they went to a login model
19:37:42 PeggyG -> NYTimes has always asked you to register but it's free
19:39:03 PeggyG -> http://www.picapp.com/
19:39:06 matt montagne -> I don't think we could assure the validity of all information pre-Internet
19:39:06 ds -> and never could-- back to the notion of "objective' knowledge == no such thing
19:39:25 ColetteC -> Check out the About section or FAQ to determine source or validity
19:39:44 matt montagne -> people were groveling for wave invites...it was a bit sad
19:40:03 Scott Shelhart -> The best filter is between your ears.  Surf with caution.
19:40:16 ds -> nothing has changed: that snake-oil salesmen are just on the net now, instead of rolling from tow-to-town in wagons
19:40:19 PeggyG -> I see that picapp also has a plugin for WordPress
19:40:52 ds -> in terms of scams and phishing et al.
19:40:56 kcaise -> absolutely @ds
19:41:44 matt montagne -> true ds
19:41:50 ColetteC -> Does PicApp place some type of tag or cookie on your site if you use their photos?
19:41:59 ds -> like CNN and the balloon boy -- who need validate any info anymore?
19:42:09 matt montagne -> same thing hapened with Jeff Goldblum death hoax during michael jackson thing
19:42:25 JoNelle G -> :) :) 
19:42:33 matt montagne -> traditional media has fallen for things before as well...we're only human
19:42:42 ColetteC -> (4) When you use picapp images you drive additional traffic to your blog, with our SEO Booster, a mechanism embedded in each of our images that guarantees images are indexed by search engines.
19:43:10 PeggyG -> thanks ColetteC! very helpful info
19:44:45 ColetteC -> and it also drives more traffic to them too
19:46:29 ds -> gotta run folks--great show! Hope to have tech wrangled in time to be back for WOW
19:47:06 ColetteC -> More info for PicApps http://photobusinessforum.blogspot.com/2009/08/silly-rabbit-picapps-got-...
19:48:08 matt montagne -> what a great name!
19:48:41 ColetteC -> Be careful -- a search engine isn't always really a SE - some are disguised as sites to embed ads or drive traffic to other sites
19:49:33 ColetteC -> It's OK to share links -- but this is also the forum to debate and discuss them
19:50:41 PeggyG -> excellent point JenW! we need to make decisions about appropriateness of sites even if they are good sites
19:51:55 ColetteC -> I use Twitter all the time to find out people's opinions about sites
19:52:30 mrsdurff -> speed reading
19:52:55 Gary -> http://www.nabt.org/blog/2009/10/13/screenshots-how-to-make-them-and-use...
19:53:52 dave -> gonna have to drop out folks... getting too cough-y
19:54:09 PeggyG -> take care dave!! get well!
