ProjectFeelGood - Equinox Webcastcathon 07

It was a pleasure to interview Kim Cofino from Bangkok, Thailand about ProjectFeelGood - an online collaboration project we did together earlier in the year.  We also discuss the advantages of becoming involved in collaborative projects as well as some of the issues.  Suggestions are also offered as to how you can get started in a collaborative project with your class.

Unfortunately my sound level is rather low at the start (Kim's is excellent).  Thanks to Durff for letting me know I needed to turn myself up a bit.  This was an incredibly exciting thing to do and it's a thrill to have Show #2 under my belt.  Many thanks to those who listened and popped into the chat.

I need to remember make sure the bitrate is 64kbs and the sample rate is 22 or 44 khtz before starting Nicecast and that I'm recording in mono not stereo (as that will help make the file smaller).
