19:00:10 PeggyG -> audio is great in itunes
19:00:44 dave -> http://www.slideshare.net/coarsesalt/use-case-for-using-gephi-for-social...

19:00:55 PeggyG -> yes! daylight savings time starts on March 7 in the US :-)
19:00:58 cyndidannerkuhn -> an me!!
19:01:08 PeggyG -> Hmmm... I'm nobody??? and Cyndi???
19:01:31 PeggyG -> I'm there
19:02:06 PeggyG -> how clever to create a slideshare to show us :-)
19:02:08 dave -> http://www.slideshare.net/coarsesalt/use-case-for-using-gephi-for-social...
19:03:08 PeggyG -> fascinating!!
19:03:20 JenM -> ... but ... but ... where is my dot?

19:11:26 cyndidannerkuhn -> sorry I missed it, but what conference was it?
19:11:45 dave -> learning analytics and knowledge
19:11:50 dave -> #lak11

19:41:00 JenM -> -- we should connect informal OER learners with real courses that will earn credit from real institutions. The relationship is between the learner (purchaser of the service) and the credentialising organisation --Wayne Mackintosh 03:51, 3 December 2010 (UTC)  .. from http://wikieducator.org/OER_for_Assessment_and_Credit_for_Students/Proje...

19:43:18 dave -> iPhone’s SAR measurement may exceed the FCC exposure guidelines for body-worn operation if positioned less than 15 mm (5/8 inch) from the body (e.g., when carrying iPhone in your pocket
19:43:19 PeggyG -> where do the followers come from on the EdTechTalk Daily?
19:45:13 dave -> For optimal mobile device performance and to be sure that human exposure to RF energy does not exceed the FCC, IC, and European Union guidelines, always follow these instructions and precautions: When on a call using the built-in audio receiver in iPhone, hold iPhone with the dock connector pointed down toward your shoulder to increase separation from the antenna. When using iPhone near your body for voice calls or for wireless data transmission over a cellular network, keep iPhone at least 15 mm (5/8 inch) away from the body, and only use carrying cases, belt clips, or holders that do not have metal parts and that maintain at least 15 mm (5/8 inch) separation between iPhone and the body. iPhone is designed and manufactured to comply with the limits for exposure to RF energy set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the United States, Industry Canada (IC) of Canada, and regulating entities of Japan, the European Union, and other countries. The exposure standard employs a unit of measurement known as the specific absorption rate, or SAR. The SAR limit applicable to iPhone set by the FCC is 1.6 watts per kilogram (W/kg), 1.6 W/kg by Industry Canada, and 2.0 W/kg by the Council of the European Union. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions (i.e., at the ear and worn on the body) specified by these agencies, with iPhone transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although SAR is determined at the highest certified power level in each frequency band, the actual SAR level of iPhone while in operation can be well below the maximum value because iPhone adjusts its cellular transmitting power based in part on proximity to the wireless network. In general, the closer you are to a cellular base station, the lower the cellular transmitting power level. iPhone’s SAR measurement may exceed the FCC exposure guidelines for body-worn operation if positioned less than 15 mm (5/8 inch) from the body (e.g., when carrying iPhone in your pocket).

19:48:43 PeggyG -> bye all
19:49:54 JenM -> nite all


Big Orange Dot

I've never been so honored to be a big orange dot. 
Cool data swim Dave. Would love to see a screencast of how to did the whole Gephi/Nexus thing with get your data out and make such pretty charts. 

Btw, with the daylight savings change, there is a possibility I can take occasional breaks from the hiatus (at least for the first 20~30 minutes of the show).
