This evening I had the remarkable experience of talking with educators and several business people across the United States and across the planet in Australia via a free skypecast– discussing some of the ideas, technologies, and issues raised at NECC 2006 in San Diego this past week. We used the free Skypecasts web service, which launched in May 2006, to connect people from Alabama, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Michigan, southern California, and the Gold Coast of Australia in this conversation. Thanks to someone who joined us (who did not reveal his name) I was able to learn about the eCamm Network software program Call Recorder for Skype, about 20 minutes into our discussion. I had not recorded a skypecast initiated with the skypecast website before, and my Audio Hijack Pro program was not working. Thankfully Call Recorder worked like a charm after I installed it and re-entered the skype discussion. My apologies if the conversation is a bit disjointed, because of some technical problems getting Brett into the call from Australia we lost a bit of the dialog. If you have feedback or comments about this Walking on Fiber skypecast, please leave them here. We will do this again, and you will be welcome to join us! The invitation will be posted here, so check back often!
