19:30:00 JL -> http://learninggames.wordpress.com/2010/01/15/ijvple1-1/#comment-3471

19:31:50 sheila -> Hi Andressateacher
19:32:09 Jason Neiffer -> I liked the Horizon report, but, they always seem to have either obvious stuff too late (like this year's "open content") or things that couldn't possible be on the further Horizon (like "virtual worlds" a couple of years ago)...
19:32:48 mrsdurff2 -> welcome back
19:32:54 mrsdurff2 -> have sound?
19:33:23 PeggyG -> @Jason--it may seem too late to us (Horizon report) but there are many schools that aren't there yet so the documentation is very helpful
19:34:24 mrsdurff2 -> i think dave should give us a tour of his toyshelves
