19:06:14 JenM -> Firefox: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7462900.stm
19:06:18 mrsdurff -> it worked dave
19:06:30 loonyhiker -> parents can't be totally blamed then for not disciplining their children if the courts tell them they can't
19:06:32 alicemercer -> Well, I mean LEGALLY, couldn't fly here, violates COOPPA
19:06:35 JenniferW -> literally -- I am stunned - very very stunned
19:07:06 mrsdurff -> it is a news story jen

19:08:05 JenniferW -> but my computer keeps freezing
19:08:12 alicemercer -> I'm doing live blogging with cover it live, and that only works in FF 2.0, so I'm waiting till after NECC
19:08:18 JL -> http://dvlabs.tippingpoint.com/blog/2008/06/18/vulnerability-in-mozilla-...
19:08:27 JenniferW -> AND -- my ADDRESS bar is not updating to all the right addresses -- it gets stuck on ONE url address on all tabs
19:08:34 JenniferW -> but delicious is working
19:08:35 mrsdurff -> FF2 crashed 2x's today on me
19:08:38 dave -> http://dvlabs.tippingpoint.com/blog/2008/06/18/vulnerability-in-mozilla-...
19:08:47 JenniferW -> I crashed today -- didn't attirbute it to FF3 -- maybe I should
19:08:55 JenniferW -> I just thought the WIKI was acting up

19:10:13 alicemercer -> Your dh is saying ridiculous stuff about LEGOs
19:10:14 JenniferW -> ar you on SKYPE, Deb. I have something to show you!!!
19:10:39 JohnS -> Free presentation resources for students & teachers!: http://etc.usf.edu/presentations/index.html
19:10:43 Debbie -> @JenW I'm not on my own computer, I'm on laptop #3 or #4 that JohnS brought home...
19:10:51 JenniferW -> LOL
19:10:54 JasonR -> Hi
19:10:55 JenniferW -> well....I will show you later
19:11:02 Debbie -> Legos? Don't get him started on Legos...
19:11:13 JenniferW -> Nice plug on my blog BTW, Guest 276
19:11:15 alicemercer -> Deb, do your kids do LEGOs?
19:11:30 JenniferW -> I want a small commission please :)
19:11:44 Debbie -> @alicemercer Of course! He had them playing Legos when they were 1 - just really really BIG ones.
19:11:54 JenniferW -> has TOS ever stopped us???
19:12:01 dave -> http://www.diigo.com/annotated/522d8a4b8a99975c2c3ed06f925eb6c9
19:12:09 JenniferW -> I mean -- look at Google Docs TOS and no one acknowledges it
19:12:12 alicemercer -> Well, he seems to have really fixed ideas on what constitutes a worthwhile LEGO project
19:12:46 JenniferW -> NO -- really????
19:12:47 Debbie -> @alice Yes, and when the "projects" are complete, I'm not allowed to destruct them for weeks.
19:12:56 mrsdurff -> hi sharon
19:13:03 sharonp -> HI all
19:13:06 JohnS -> @Jdub we do try to at least abide by use restrictions.
19:13:24 JenniferW -> @JohnS --- truly??? with google docs TOS??
19:13:24 sharonp -> Wow, my last ETT weekly for a while
19:13:38 alicemercer -> He doesn't like "sets" that are objects because they stymie creativity, which is NOT my experience with son.
19:13:47 sharonp -> was there a link for what Dave is talking about??
19:13:49 JasonR -> http://penny-arcade.com/2008/6/18/#news_22519 LEGO and Kellogg's team up to teach kids how to choke.
19:13:50 mrsdurff -> how long will you be gone Sharon?
19:14:01 JenniferW -> Sharon -- are you going somewhere???
19:14:04 JenniferW -> :)
19:14:13 alicemercer -> http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/06/080620133907.htm
19:14:21 Debbie -> @alice We have only loose legos, no set. But then again, we have girls who are not as interested in creating specific items as some boys might be.
19:14:31 sharonp -> so funny, Jen!
19:14:37 Debbie -> @SharonP WHen do you leave for Africa?
19:14:46 sharonp -> I leave for Africa on Thursday
19:14:50 sharonp -> EEK!!
19:14:52 JohnS -> SEE?! She agrees with me (for once) :-)
19:14:54 dave -> wow... nice plug of your research jen!
19:15:03 alicemercer -> If he had a boy, or a lego nut in the family he'd understand IT JUST DOESN'T matter
19:15:07 sharonp -> Jen is writing on backchanneling - feel scooped!
19:15:10 JenniferW -> how much STUDY do you need to have to prove the validity of something???
19:15:18 mrsdurff -> and sharon how long will you be there?
19:15:25 sharonp -> almost 7 weeks
19:15:26 JenniferW -> I mean -- how long would you have to study to prove a trend??
19:15:38 dave -> @jenniferW it depends on who you are trying to prove it to
19:15:40 sharonp -> how long or how many?
19:15:41 mrsdurff -> wow!
19:15:43 alicemercer -> I use diigo
19:15:48 alicemercer -> ACK!
19:15:49 JenniferW -> smiles -- just wondering............ :)
19:16:11 mrsdurff -> that's is a lot of packing
19:16:16 JasonR -> I can import them into a program called Scrivener and highlight/annotate from there. Mac only.
19:16:16 JenniferW -> I am just wondering
19:16:17 sharonp -> am alsomt panicking about what needs to get done between now and Thsuday
19:16:19 mrsdurff -> hi jeff mason
19:16:28 JenniferW -> no picking a fight -- just wondering what constitutes a TRUE study??
19:16:37 JenniferW -> what do you think they would want???
19:16:38 sharonp -> I agree with DAve
19:16:48 alicemercer -> Well, don't show them that court case from Canada, lol!
19:16:53 sharonp -> have to show several studies from reputable peeps
19:16:57 Debbie -> @alice I can see both sides. Sets would be useful for creating something specific which would be played with creatively. But sets aren't creative building, really.
19:17:05 mrsdurff -> a study that is repeatable jen
19:17:14 sharonp -> which is why it is so impt to document our successes (and failures)
19:17:16 JenniferW -> Like the study Jen is talking about -- I wonder how much they studied to prove this
19:17:21 JenniferW -> just truly wondering............
19:17:23 alicemercer -> Debbie, my experience, they build it once, then they recombo and make their own.
19:17:28 Debbie -> @sharonP It will all get done. No worries!
19:17:29 JenniferW -> not being argumentative -- just truly wondering
19:17:45 loonyhiker -> JW: I thought it was a good question
19:17:46 sharonp -> Jen, have more on laptop studies if you are intersted - some new stuff from QC
19:17:56 mrsdurff -> then it is not research based
19:17:59 JasonR -> Even with brain scans?
19:18:02 JenniferW -> Loonyhiker -- actually I was asking JENM --- :) for her study
19:18:05 Debbie -> @alice Ah...the friends I know who have boys build the item and leave it built, some even glue it. SO it's a different experience.
19:18:12 JasonR -> Ah, I see what Dave is saying
19:18:21 sharonp -> always agreeing with Dave
19:18:22 JenniferW -> I wasn't being argumentative
19:18:24 alicemercer -> My guys, recombo, whole section of LEGO site where they post
19:18:24 mrsdurff -> you wouldn't - yet
19:18:27 JL -> http://www.thejournal.com/articles/22786
19:18:28 JasonR -> You can't unlearn how to ride a bike
19:18:37 loonyhiker -> @JW but I like to see other ppl ask questions that are wandering around my own mind :)
19:18:41 mrsdurff -> i could jason
19:18:42 sharonp -> very difficult to measure this stuff
19:18:52 JenniferW -> Thank you Loony -- I like reading other people's minds :)
19:18:53 alicemercer -> "Back in the day..."
19:18:56 dave -> @jenniferW i thought it was a great question
19:18:56 JenM -> Flickr founders depart Yahoo: http://www.techcrunch.com/2008/06/17/flickr-co-founders-join-mass-exodus...
19:19:03 Debbie -> Hi Alvin. (-:
19:19:08 dave -> i should have explained myself better
19:19:12 JenniferW -> @dave -- thanks. I kinda thought you thought I was picking a fight
19:19:14 sharonp -> you know, it sometimes comes down to the teachers' perception s of whetehr learning is happening
19:19:17 Alvin Trusty -> hi Debbie
19:19:20 JasonR -> Founder of del.icio.us too has left
19:19:34 JenniferW -> has left what??
