Skype

Success At Last!

It only took a brand new iMac and about 10 minutes of chatting with the fabulous Lee Baber and I was streaming and recording live on Sandbox B! Yahoo! I can't believe how clean and simple webcasting with a mac is. All you need is Nicecast and Skype.

Streaming without skype about books

So here are 15 minutes worth of skypeless talk. Note how the silences slowly become fewer as the topic consolidates around books.  Boy, I was in a sweat!

Oh, and I wasn't alone. I had some wonderful people in the chat room!
