@darinrking count yourself lucky. Many of our Oklahoma districts are locked down much more than that…
Of the 11 of us here, just 2 are women, Are most wordpress developers male? #okcwordpress
@Neilstephenson thanks for the reminder - I will reply with email. Yes we should be good for tomorrow!
@mctoonish no this Carolyn is from Louisiana :-)
I am planning to Ustream the OKC Wordpress users group meeting tonight which starts in 20 min :-)

@willrich45 well, at least you’re making money even if there are a lot of miles to go. Income is a good thing. :-)
@bigjakelittle yes, that often is the dynamic isn’t it? Our classrooms need to light the room and serve as mutual audiences 4 each other
@sandy5coat do you know if Karen is blogging anywhere about her new role? I am hopeful b/c of her appointment
@courosa I heartily agree. I have yet to master the art of taming the burgeoning inbox :-(
@ChristianLong woo hoo! Congrats!
#21c6w I write online, others write back
New meme #21c6w tweet a 6 word story that communicates the essence of 21st century learning
What has been your favorite Twitter meme to date?
@mrmosesdotorg yes - no replies yet tho. It did work with iTunes 7 - not sure about newer versions
@a_armstrong I love your Twitter byline btw
@a_armstrong check out libsyn and bluehost
@kwertz Wow. Is anyone collecting lists of VA schools which block Google? That would be a good thing to amplify as “bad choices” for admins
@MetroTechOK we are here at Metrotech in the economic development center
Has anyone had experience running iTunes over WINE on Ubuntu in a school 1:1 setting? http://ow.ly/Hy4W
@ChrisParadise wow that is great!!! I would love to drop by and visit sometime this month
New blog post: Notes from November’s OKC Wordpress User’s Group Meeting http://bit.ly/6SVqmA
@mscofino yes! All presos will be linked from the schedule as they go live :-)
@dgende about 45 min. It is a recorded video tho, so you can watch it at anytime after that. Live fireside chat is Thurs
@MetroTechOK yes indeed - We need to address this in all our schools. Our COV learning community is not accessible in many OK districts now
@cnansen yes it should be a district decision 4sure. Unfortunately many of our districts just follow what filtering companies recommend
@snbeach Hi Sheryl, this is Bruce…how r u?….just finishing the OK gig home tonite arrived Sat pm
@snbeach Yes, he’s sitting right beside me! He quoted you in his preso discussing participatory learning culture :-)
@TParks so glad you’re headed to Mt Vernon next week! Taking students? Will you videoconference live again from the site? :-)
#ok1to1 I am inspired by Bruce Dixon. I am inspired to think bigger and in more ambitious terms for our 1:1 projects than I have been…
@TParks wish you were here - thinking about you in Howe doing what we are talking about here! :-)
#ok1to1 listening to OK tech directors say we need to hear the FCC chair address CIPA, and explain YES you can permit Ning and Twitter
#ok1to1 vendors were given 5 minutes each to share their schpeal. Almost Pecha Kucha. Not really tho. Many didn’t use visuals.
of course I’ve been in some US schools where Google is blocked too… not 1:1 schools, but still that happens… #ok1to1
There are some schools in Australia now that have blocked Google entirely. Wow. #ok1to1
@ittosde yes, found one in the back! #ok1to1
I think Carolyn Thompson may be blowing away a lot of the audience with her examples of student wiki projects, uses of iGoogle, etc #ok1to1
I should have brought my netbook - my macbook pro is already out of juice, and it’s just 10 am :-( started with full charge today #ok1to1
this begs the question, what is “learning transformation” - hopefully we’re looking for more than digitizing traditional instruction #ok1to1
listening Ron Canuel present on his district’s 1:1 showing graphs how traditional school subjects are liked better when tech is used #ok1to1
