[10:07:52] <mke614> : no
[10:08:03] <mguhlin> : You didn't switch to a PC did you?
[10:08:07] <mguhlin> : ;->
[10:08:25] <mguhlin> : heard something
[10:09:34] <mke614> : yes
[10:09:36] <alicebarr> : yes
[10:09:38] <mguhlin> : loud and clear
[10:09:46] <fceblog> : oh-oh
[10:09:48] <fceblog> : again
[10:09:57] <mguhlin> : Hola Claudia!
[10:10:28] <fceblog> : Hola Miguel, good to see you here. Well, sort or.
[10:10:49] <fceblog> : Meeting you would be more like it.
[10:11:02] <alicebarr> : Will what are the terms the kids use to rate the games again?
[10:11:28] <fceblog> : bag, borrow,buy?
[10:11:46] <alicebarr> : yes I think taht's it. Thanks
[10:12:05] <mguhlin> : yes
[10:12:11] <alicebarr> : in and out
[10:13:02] <alicebarr> : Is that a library of games behind you?
[10:13:06] <mguhlin> : Fading in and out
[10:13:35] <fceblog> : sounds like special effects for a futuristic movie, eh?
[10:13:39] <willrich45> : can you hear?
[10:13:41] <mguhlin> : pixelized fading out sound
[10:13:56] <mguhlin> : head penguin is all i heard
[10:13:56] <DavidJakes> : video sound choppy?
[10:14:02] <mguhlin> : chris burns
[10:14:09] <mguhlin> : talk about about what we didn't like
[10:14:13] <mguhlin> : duster magic
[10:14:16] <seanfitz> : sound is choppy
[10:14:16] <mguhlin> : that's what i'm hearing
[10:14:19] <fceblog> : fades and back and fades again
[10:15:21] <willrich45> : worth listening to?
[10:15:39] <mke614> : missing a lot of sound
[10:15:43] <fceblog> : I find it hard to follow
[10:15:46] <DavidJakes> : seems you are fine, but Warren sound goes in and out
[10:15:52] <alicebarr> : missing abot 4 secs for every 5
[10:15:53] <mguhlin> : it's a shame the audio can't be broadcast separately from video
[10:15:58] <mguhlin> : hmm
[10:16:11] <mguhlin> : video is great
[10:16:17] <mguhlin> : audio is coming in now
[10:16:27] <fceblog> : video is great
[10:16:33] <alicebarr> : now it seems OK
[10:16:54] <mguhlin> : does uStream assign video priority based on visitors in the room?
[10:17:05] <DavidJakes> : Hi this is Sir Skeets
[10:18:14] <fceblog> : I hear Will loud but ...with that echo.
[10:18:37] <mguhlin> : no echo
[10:18:41] <mke614> : no
[10:18:44] <DavidJakes> : no
[10:19:04] <mguhlin> : turn off lights
[10:19:18] <mguhlin> : is this a 1st person shooter? ;->
[10:19:47] <mguhlin> : audio gone
[10:19:53] <willrich45> : this is a you tube video
[10:19:53] <mguhlin> : back
[10:20:39] <willrich45> : he's showing the kids how to do video
[10:20:44] <mke614> : What is the network connection in the library, Will?
[10:21:25] <fceblog-1> : I hear very well now.
[10:23:23] <colemama> : Not hearing anything
[10:23:25] <mguhlin> : can't hear him
[10:23:27] <DavidJakes> : nothing on my end
[10:23:30] <mke614> : nothing
[10:23:53] <mguhlin> : thought about reloading uStream to recognize the external mic
[10:23:55] <mguhlin> : ?
[10:23:57] <colemama> : good
[10:24:02] <DavidJakes> : yes
[10:24:02] <mke614> : nice
[10:24:03] <mguhlin> : sounds fine
[10:24:05] <fceblog-1> : yes
[10:25:22] <willrich45> : any questions?
[10:26:45] <mke614> : Are any girls involved with this program?
[10:27:00] <willrich45> : open to anyone...but not many girls come
[10:27:53] <mke614> : What do they do with the results of the video testing?
[10:28:11] <willrich45> : warren uses them in the reviews that he writes.
[10:28:16] <JenniferWagner> : do they have tournaments??
[10:28:24] <colemama> : I like the educational slant - "gender stereotyping"
[10:28:29] <alicebarr> : This is great! Brings up some interesting points!
[10:28:31] <willrich45> : he also makes sure to point out (as he is now) the cultural issues
[10:28:32] <willrich45> : yes
[10:28:33] <DavidJakes> : @JLWagner. Thought you were laying low?
[10:28:36] <willrich45> : he does thta all the time
[10:28:40] <JenniferWagner> : I am -- shhhh don't tell
[10:28:46] <alicebarr> : JJJEENN
[10:28:56] <JenniferWagner> : just saw WILL TV -- had to come for 5 minutes
[10:29:01] <fceblog-1> : @JLWagner What happened?
[10:29:13] <JenniferWagner> : sorry??
[10:29:31] <fceblog-1> : Thought you were meeting RL friends ;-)
[10:29:39] <JenniferWagner> : I am in 10 minutes
[10:29:44] <JenniferWagner> : just stopped to say HI
[10:29:55] <fceblog-1> : ;-)
[10:29:58] <willrich45> : hi Jen
[10:30:06] <JenniferWagner> : Hi Will -- thanks for doing this!!
[10:30:10] <DavidJakes> : @willrich45. How much time does your son spend playing video games?
[10:30:39] <willrich45> : he does webkinz for a couple of hours a week. No games per se
[10:30:48] <willrich45> : Just when he's here.
[10:30:53] <DavidJakes> : thanks
[10:32:31] <willrich45> : so...not sure if this is great tv
[10:32:38] <colemama> : Just wish this ustream technology was more consistently "on"
[10:32:40] <willrich45> : but just another chance to practice
[10:32:48] <willrich45> : what do you mean?
[10:33:32] <colemama> : video/audio still off and on - right now great, but two minutes ago, not
[10:33:32] <willrich45> : is the quality viewable?
[10:33:51] <colemama> : quality is good considering lighting
[10:33:52] <mke614> : it is viewable
[10:34:02] <willrich45> : k
[10:35:02] <alicebarr> : Do you the reviewers use some kind of rating system?
[10:35:03] <colemama> : Commendable that they are testing all games - recognition that not all is good
[10:35:22] <DavidJakes> : what do the kids think of all of this?
[10:35:29] <colemama> : and that it is time consuming to analyze and evaluate
[10:35:51] <alicebarr> : Do they read the reviews that Warren writes?
[10:35:58] <willrich45> : the rating system is buy? bag? borrow?
[10:36:01] <alicebarr> : That would be pretty cool for their resumes!
[10:36:30] <willrich45> : nice and simple
[10:36:58] <mke614> : Do the reviewers have a favorite game console?
[10:37:00] <willrich45> : the kids like this...
[10:37:01] <DavidJakes> : @willrich45. Do the kids even react to being on uStream?
[10:37:13] <willrich45> : the delay right now is about 15 seconds...oy
[10:37:18] <willrich45> : no
[10:37:25] <alicebarr> : What happens when two kids disagree of the rating?
[10:37:28] <willrich45> : we have parental sign offs for all of them.
[10:38:37] <colemama> : later...enjoyed the 'view' - thanks!
[10:38:53] <fceblog-1> : How do children describe this experience: I've been playing games or testing games? Do they feel this is another level where their evaluation matters?
[10:39:36] <willrich45> : not sure...I think a bit of both
[10:40:33] <DavidJakes> : kids a natural
[10:40:52] <mke614> : sign him up!
[10:41:41] <alicebarr> : ooooo can't hear!
[10:41:56] <mguhlin> : will these forms be shared on a wiki somewhere?
[10:42:14] <mguhlin> : gotta go. thanks for all the fish!
[10:42:21] <mguhlin> : it was fun!
[10:45:02] <PaceGuy> : Are the games teaching practical life skills?
[10:45:15] <willrich45> : hmmm...good question
[10:45:19] <willrich45> : some are.
[10:45:36] <willrich45> : elebits seems to
[10:45:54] <willrich45> : that's a wii game
[10:46:28] <alicebarr> : Anyone else no hearing?
[10:46:45] <mke614> : It is going in and out. Mostly in
[10:46:55] <alicebarr> : Hmm I don't hear a thing
[10:47:00] <pj23harry> : audio fading
[10:47:09] <willrich45> : bandwidth...
[10:47:12] <willrich45> : crud
[10:47:23] <willrich45> : i'll wrap it up...
[10:47:41] <pj23harry> : How does this compare with operator11??
[10:47:56] <willrich45> : ustream seems to be more...
[10:48:02] <PaceGuy> : Why do games work so well? It's probably a matter of envolvement so I suppose the question is "what is there about games that captures such a high-level of attention?
[10:48:09] <willrich45> : i dunno...
[10:48:15] <willrich45> : sedate somehow
[10:48:21] <willrich45> : too much going on at o11
[10:48:27] <willrich45> : nice concept, but...
[10:48:49] <pj23harry> : thanks - just happen to be looking at them both today
[10:49:00] <willrich45> : I think games challenge kids and they feel accomplishment as they learn and move through them.
[10:49:27] <fceblog-1> : As a viewer, UStream has the chatroom side by side with the image.
[10:49:28] <PaceGuy> : If we really understood the effectiveness of games, we would be much better teachers.
[10:49:41] <script> : interesting concept
[10:49:54] <mke614> : Thanks again Will!
[10:50:04] <fceblog-1> : Thank you
[10:50:13] <lisaparisi> : Oops missed the whole thing
[10:50:18] <lisaparisi> : oh well next time
[10:50:22] <pj23harry> : thanks Will
[10:50:29] <willrich45> : it's archived
[10:50:40] <mke614> : It would be nice to do a review of the streaming sites with pros and cons for education.
[10:50:51] <pj23harry> : Very true mke
[10:51:18] <willrich45> : mike...I think we're too early in terms of education
[10:51:20] <pj23harry> : hi Lisa
[10:51:37] <willrich45> : at least from the free Web sites
[10:51:47] <willrich45> : may be ways to do this internally...or not
[10:51:53] <mke614> : True, but I think some of the issues that you had in O11 with others poping in should be noted.
[10:52:24] <mke614> : O11 is good for causal chatting.
[10:52:27] <script> : what was that action11 ?
[10:52:32] <pj23harry> : So with O11 you are a bit like an open skype conference call then??
[10:52:51] <script> : whor o11? what is that?
[10:53:02] <fceblog-1> : another live streaming tool
[10:53:06] <willrich45> : oh absolutely on the issues
[10:53:10] <mke614> : No, it seems that the last time Will was over there, someone was trying to become part of the broadcast
[10:53:26] <mke614> : not good for education....
[10:53:29] <script> : like ustream? what the address?
[10:53:37] <pj23harry> : I listened earlier with you Dean and David
[10:53:48] <willrich45> : but I think we need a few more months of putting these through their paces before really being able to think about classroom stuff
[10:54:05] <mke614> : @script - Operator11
[10:54:06] <fceblog-1> : agree. Caution. Too much hype.
[10:54:22] <willrich45> : yeah...why not do this just for us?
[10:54:23] <script> : cool thanks mke614
[10:54:51] <mke614> : Maybe a wiki as you are experimenting with the sites?
[10:54:55] <fceblog-1> : If I get this correctly, with Op11 any viewer may join the streaming? Do they ask permission to join?
[10:55:04] <willrich45> : you have to let them
[10:55:14] <willrich45> : but the fact that they can get in the room is kinda freaky
[10:55:53] <willrich45> : anyway...I gotta run
[10:55:58] <fceblog-1> : Yes. I saw the "someone" starting another show saying he had been outed from yours. Not nice.
[10:56:01] <mke614> : Thanks again!
[10:56:02] <pj23harry> : Just like some of the When Night Fallls skypecasts for K1206 then :)
[10:56:10] <willrich45> : thanks for watching...keep chatting if you like.
[10:56:26] <pj23harry> : Thanks Will nice to catch you again
[10:56:57] <mke614> : Does anyone know if ustream can merge people from different sites like O11?
[10:56:59] <pj23harry> : Thanks for coming in our FlashMeeting a few weeks ago by the way
[10:57:37] <fceblog-1> : It seems to me we like the idea of streaming in the open, rather than an edu-TV walled garden, but there are issues...
[10:57:39] <pj23harry> : mke it doesn't look like it - more like a single open webcam
[10:57:58] <mke614> : Thanks....
