18:57:46 dave -> hey gary.

18:58:00 Gary -> Hello
18:58:03 dave -> Inspiration... i see to remember trying that
18:58:38 alicemercer -> It's nicer in some ways than the online ones featured, BUT it is not free. It's pretty cheap $50

19:18:58 paule -> I also like PDF Creator
19:19:28 JohnSchinker -> I used to go really low tech. When I didn't want my students to print things out, I'd use white text on a dark background. Of course, they could copy/paste.
19:19:49 alicemercer -> I like that John
19:19:54 dave -> http://vixy.net/
19:20:06 alicemercer -> My students prefer white on blue when I project word docs.

19:22:02 jeff -> http://albumoftheday.com/facebook/
19:22:36 Durff -> if it is written down, you can't protect it
19:22:42 dave -> yup
19:22:49 dave -> but if its on your desk
19:23:03 JohnSchinker -> What about a recording? You can't protect that either.
19:23:05 dave -> it isn't as easy for me to grab from here on the island :)
19:23:09 Durff -> oh, did I say Jeff? pook me, I meant Dave
19:23:13 JohnSchinker -> One might even say that if it's in a tangible form, it can't be protected.
19:23:23 Durff -> where's that coffee?
19:23:24 jeff -> http://www.linuxjournal.com/node/1000196
19:23:27 alicemercer -> Oh possibly. I'm wondering what will happen when someone who participated in Girls Gone Wild decides to become a teacher
19:23:28 JohnSchinker -> But since that defines a copyrighted work.... :-)
19:23:47 dave -> yes the girls gone wild thing...
19:23:51 Durff -> what is Girls Gone Wild?
19:23:59 alicemercer -> I'm sorry the nonsequiter was about the audio stream
19:24:12 alicemercer -> Don't ASK! you really don't want to know.

19:24:29 dave -> http://share.skype.com/sites/en/2007/03/skype_prime_beta_introducing_t.html
19:24:33 Durff -> but it is all public
19:24:34 alicemercer -> So I'm picturing a dad figuring out, I know that rack! when they meet their kids teacher.
19:25:00 Durff -> have you heard Steve Dembo's online resume presentation?
19:25:10 alicemercer -> And someone invoking the "morals" clause of the crednetial rules to pull her cred3ential.
19:25:29 Durff -> and it could happen
19:25:33 alicemercer -> Nope, where is it.
19:25:49 alicemercer -> Oh, it DOES happen. Cali is cracking down. Pulling for DUIs now
19:25:58 Durff -> oh, I heard him at PETE-C
19:26:18 Gary -> Lawyers will love this
19:26:22 Durff -> he probably has it online

19:31:49 alicemercer -> The link on del.icio.us was broken
19:31:53 Durff -> will it cost me money is what I want to know
19:32:05 Gary -> A great deal more than the $150.00 laptop
