The Chat:

 11:57:04  PeggyG  Hi poochiesan-are you at the conference? I was just on your website :-)
 12:10:15  techyturner  Has Seedlings begun?
 12:12:21  poochiesan  just saw a twitter about this and thought I'd check it out
 12:12:47  PeggyG  yeah!! Hi Cheryl-are you having problems streaming from the conference?
 12:13:53  PeggyG  I'm guessing they must be having some technical problems. The stream isn't up yet on either or iTunes
 12:14:15  PeggyG  it's always a fun challenge trying to stream live from a conference :-)
 12:14:46  PeggyG  Hi Cheryl-having problems? new login :-)
 12:16:03  PeggyG  are Bob and Alice joining you?
 12:16:09  cheryloakes~Seedlings LIVE ACTEM  yet, do you have sound?
 12:16:25  PeggyG  no sound yet-are you using ustream?
 12:16:56  PeggyG  it says the server is down still
 12:18:19  PeggyG  are Bob and Alice in the room with you? You can skype me but I was here to listen to you :-)
 12:20:21  PeggyG  it's always a challenge streaming from a conference--you've done it many times!
 12:20:53  mrichme  HI Peggy
 12:21:10  PeggyG  Hi mrichme--another technology adventure for us :-)
 12:21:24  PeggyG  Hi Bob-great to see you!
 12:21:49  PeggyG  are you having connection issues at the conference?
 12:23:03  PeggyG  Hi Jackie-they're still working on getting the stream to work :-)
 12:23:09  Kern  Hi everyone!
 12:23:19  PeggyG  Hi Kern
 12:23:35  jackiegerstein  Thanks Peggy - I just started clicking on all of the channels:D
 12:24:08  jackiegerstein  Rushed home - happy I didn't miss anything though
 12:24:10  PeggyG  I thought people might be thinking it was their computer but Seedlings is having some connection issues at the conference.
 12:24:49  PeggyG  I'm waiting patiently :-) I know it will be great fun if they can get it working! They've been collecting a bunch of great websites for this!
 12:25:26  jackiegerstein  Have you been in contact with them for an update?
 12:25:37  mrichme  Peggy we're collecting the urls and they're going on the seedlings ning
 12:25:54  PeggyG  Cheryl sent a quick note here--connection is failing
 12:26:14  PeggyG  That's great to know that the URLs will be on the Seedlings Ning :-)
