Sanford Arbogast:

Bernie DeKoven: thanks so much for letting me be part of this - really remarkable group of people playing with equally remarkable technologies (well perhaps not equally). Sorry to have to leave. Please keep me in your loop.

Rob Darrow: Lisa, can you say it again?

Sanford Arbogast: Alison I am also teach statistics

Alison Snieckus: oh, how interesting that three of us here teach statistics.

Sanford Arbogast: what are teh probablitites of that happening?

Alison Snieckus: I think Jeff wants us to chat on the live stream page.

Rob Darrow: Hmm, that reminds me of an old song, "Free to Be You and Me" We could rewrite to be "Free to Mooc for You and Me."

Kay Endriss: Sanford, I thought your last name looked familiar. Published?

@Alison: no kidding. Seriously, what are the odds?

Alison Snieckus: hehe

Sanford Arbogast: no maybe you are thinking of the detective in psych

Kay Endriss: @Sanford Ah well. Memory not what it used to be.

Lisa M Lane: Didn't they try that with learning objects? and they're all over the place

Lisa M Lane: does that make Google search super important? maybe we need Google Student or something

Rob Darrow: Alison, where are you located...and what level of stats do you teach where?

Lisa M Lane: that's what's hard about the "course" idea

Osvaldo Rodriguez: adios a todos

Lisa M Lane: that's what I was going to ask - can this keep going?
