@checkmark Does W13 start at 3:30?
@placesense URL problem. Can you resend it?
@sparkymonster Worldware needs to support multiple identities. Different accounts in different settings. Otherwise, creepy treehouse.

#camptech08 Problem 3: The two sessions about integrated environments are at the same time tomorrow morning!
#camptech08 Problem 2: Many of the sessions are about a plethora of tools, new and old. Too many. Many trees. No forest.
#camptech08 Problem 1: There are enough good ideas here, that I want to skip sessions and try them out.
#camptech08 Hi, Katie. Nice to catch up with you.
@karinejoly Similar. Eerie. Did you ping Toby?
#camptech08 Innovator awards now underway.
@pong Glad you were persistent.
@davelester Thanks, Dave. I also downloaded the newest Omeka. Is there any roadmap for integrating Omeka into WP?
@adamstahr Defining outcomes and pathways for engagement is critical. I’m sure I’m
#camptech08 Apple tech presentation. multiple-party iChat video is completely breaking up. How about TokBox?
#camptech08 Also, is anyone taking pictures?
@cmduke Sage on the stage is alive and well.
@davelester Where is the URL for WPBook/Scholar Press? I’m very interested!
#camptech08 Poster session: MST.edu chose Documentum for its CMS. Took two years to implement.
@Intellagirl 5:30 exhibit hall entrance for the reception. Had to go back to the VPN before the end of your talk. Can’t wait to chat!
All #camptech08 writers, let’s meet at 5:30 at exhibit hall entrance (reception) instead of lobby so we can match faces to avatars.
@m_scott Will you write about that?
@checkmark Yes. I will sit at the entrance of the 253A is 12:15. However, Twitter is down, so I’ll just look for your pixellated face.
@edventures I was going to sit in on ePortfolio … but I can’t resist Second Life … I’m moving …
@smeranda How is this different from hulu.com? Other than Madonna on the home page? Cuil.
#camptech08 Presenter just mentioned Current.tv and Clay Shirky. No recognition.
#camptech Response to question: it is our job to use the tools we have. Blogs and wikis are what we do.
#camptech Just posed question: is anyone working toward an integrated environment, rather than countless separate systems?
#camptech08 Was just out of the room — is that a green screen in room C?
@checkmark I’m sitting next to the door, charging my battery. I’ll be here …
#camptech08 Anyone at T01, 3, 4, or 5?
@edventures Super! I’ll post it. But, right now, I’m seeing a gray page …
#highedweb Reminder from O’Reilly: All knowledge objects are going to be connected. Web 2.0 is the froth of the wave.
@Intellagirl I’m thinking about posting here rather than the chat room since it can’t be archived.
@Intellagirl Post your notes here!
BTW, thanks to Laurie and Peter for updates on MITWorld and the Singapore MIT Alliance yesterday.
