Rob Darrow: i noticed, Jeff and figured I was too noisy ...


Jeff Lebow:


John Graves: http://onswipe.com/

Rob Darrow: How does this compare with Inkling? http://www.inkling.com/

Rob Darrow: Moved from e-publishing to Google Plus circles

Would be nice to have "public" circles we could all join and didn't
have to create our own circles in G+.

So we wouldn't have to all make our own "Edumooc" circle

John Graves: wikitospeech.org



Rob Darrow: John - What is "procity"?

John Graves: prosody

Michael Marzio: John - right now I use a cheap Kodak Zi8 True HD with pro microphone input

John Graves: So no screencasting?

Michael Marzio: Not really - just a big library of video online for ELLs


Rob Darrow: So, that's how Stephen can so quickly find stuff. Always
wondered how he did that. Good 'ol grasshopper...

John Graves: So what would you say is your production-to-playback
ratio? 10 minutes shooting for 10 minutes of playable video? Or 10
minutes shooting, 30 minutes of edits, ...

Michael Marzio: John - without exaggeration is 100 to 1

John Graves: Yes. I'm seeing about 25:1 for this Wiki-to-Speech project.


Michael Marzio: John - I depend on spontaneity for "real English", and
spontaneity is messy.
