Technology: skype chatnotes

Joitske Hulsebosch

We had a skype teleconference about wikipedia in local Ghanaian languages. 16/08/2006 15:48:43] henry says: no [16/08/2006 15:48:54] henry says: change over to a new machine [16/08/2006 15:49:41] henry says: how do i enter into the conference call Just seems that it's an integral part of skype teleconferences to have these kind of intervals. Now that I'm used to it, it's even part of the skype fun to deal with these situations, but when you are new, it might be confusing.

Last week my skype account was hacked which meant I couldn’t log in. After no response from skype support (and a hilarious email from them wanting feedback on their customer support!) It was interesting just how disconnected I felt without skype - how that list of names reminds me of people near and far who I connect with often or just occasionally. I gave in and created a new account.

Facilitation without frontiers: breaking boundaries of time and space with online methods

Joitske Hulsebosch

You may invite them by skype or by open spaces like Twitter. Last Friday I facilitated a workshop for the #iaf conference in the Netherlands. The theme was 'facilitation without frontiers'. I started my workshop explaining that many facilitators and trainers immediately start drawing two boundaries when they get an assignment to facilitate: The boundary of the walls of the workshop venue (everybody who attends is in, everybody who doesn't attend is out).

Iphone 4s: constant loss of mobile signal problem

The Bumble Bee

When the signal is lost the only way to use the iphone 4s handset is via skype over the internet - however this is outbound only and quite costly as you are not generally phoning skype to skype. In early December 2011 I upgraded from an iphone 3G to iphone 4s on the Orange UK network. Since upgrading, a month ago, the iphone 4s has been losing the mobile signal about 10 times per day for periods of up to one hour.
