    Hello everyone,

    If there is anyone online tomorrow between 9am and 3pm (21/10/2011 Adelaide, Australia time) who would be keen to have a look at a todaysmeet site which i will have running as a back channel in a professional development session which i am helping to run on Australia and its engagment with Asia it would be great to see you. Im showing the staff at our school the power of back channel and how it can be used for collaboration, it would be cool to show that you can have global collaboration on sites such as this. If you are keen and see this post please contact me via email and I will send the link. It would be great if you are able to have a quick look and maybe post a couple of comments. I realise that it will be the middle of the night in a number of countries but it is worth a try :)

    From Alex

    Best of luck! 

    Unfortunately that does not work out well for me on the East Coast in the US.
