I think you can get to a recording of the session at: http://www.editlib.org/globalu/ It's not there yet but should be there soon. The July session is posted there. Unlike our session with Mack Male, there was no whiteboard available for George and Dave to post on. Any links they wished to share were typed into the lobby chat box. The next online session like this will be held on September 8 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Standard time. The topic for that session will be Accessibility in Open Educational Resources.
Here are some links to resources some of you may be interested in: (as they came up, I clicked on the links and they are in my tabs right now).

- From one of the participants, Harold Jarche, I will be getting some information about how to cite online resources in research papers. When I checked his blog, I came across his blog post for today which is about safeguarding your data. Here is the address: http://www.jarche.com/2009/08/wheres-your-data/. I like his suggestions for how to ensure you don't lose valuable information if some of these online tools are discontinued.

By the way, George and Dave are hilarious. It really was a free-for-all of ideas and engagement. They are both Canadians. I loved it. One of my favourite lines was when George said to Dave, "Dave, you are too close to embracing chaos." Since I am a chaotic type of personality myself, I appreciate encountering others who like to live teetering on the edge.
