@dmdanker So A was not real impressed with Crawdaddies. I thought it was ok but not up to our group’s normal AMAZING restaurant standards.
@achurches What have the big changes in Geraldine been lately?
@achurches I went to high school for about six weeks in Geraldine as part of an AFS Outdoor Skills Programme :-)
@HallDavidson Hi Hall! Glad to find U here! Since Vista doesn’t support PhotoStory3, what do you recommend as a replacement besides a Mac?!
@glegg I think the best way to help admins see the value of social networking like twitter is help them experience it personally in a + way
@glegg Geoff— you might try posting to twitter from your mobile phone, that way you can bypass local content filters… [grin]
@efreeman Hi Erin, nice to meet you via twitter. Do you ever get over to Geraldine? I went to school there for a few months in 1987!
just listened to John Jones’ presentation on Drupal again. I wish every principal and super in our state understood the concepts he shares
@derekeb yes unfortunately… trying to catch up on twitter… difficult… twitter karma finally worked for me, i really love to use it…
@cgarrety Since PhotoStory3 won’t run on Windows Vista, do you have a free digital storytelling app you recommend for Vista users?
@jmaklary John - what is the URL for that free business card website and service you told me about at TechLearning in Austin in November?
@brianyearling Brian - you can’t go wrong buying Macs for video editing- intel processors mean you can run whatever OS you want- you CAN do!
@billgx Greetings to you via twitter, Bill! Were any of your dept buildings at KSU damaged by the tornado last week?
@armtech I love jott.com - esp using it with 43folders…
@balkhis Have you all considered submitting a proposal for K12online08 in leading the change? I’d love to hear about your laptop pilot!
@amichetti Are you spending the summer in Hanoi or stateside?
