[8:39] BlakeLandau Resident: Good morning @blakelandau here from @techsoup
[8:39] Buffy Beale: take it away Gentle 🙂
[8:40] Gentle Heron: Are we ready to learn about “Planning Effective Slides for Presentations”?
[8:40] Gentle Heron: This mini-lesson is about designing an effective professional presentation. It is not about the software you may use (often PowerPoint), nor is it about the projection technology. We will not discuss the best way to deliver a presentation in front of an audience.
[8:40] Coughran Mayo: ha ha
[8:40] Rik Riel: (excuse me while I change avatars….)
[8:40] Coughran Mayo: its about tie
[8:40] Coughran Mayo: time
[8:40] In Kenzo: Thanks everyone
[8:40] Gentle Heron: Rather our topic is the way you think about and design the visuals that accompany the presentation. Your overall goal is to make the content clear, relevant, and memorable.
[8:40] In Kenzo: Great to be here
[8:40] Gentle Heron: Hi InK!
[8:40] Gentle Heron: Remember, your PowerPoint slides are used to enhance your overall presentation, not to replace you. So here are five ideas and a rule of thumb to help you plan a presentation that uses slides.
[8:40] Gentle Heron: 1 Simple
It’s not a matter of keeping it simple. Often the information you will convey orally is not simple.
[8:41] Gentle Heron: You must make your slides simple, no matter how complex the information being conveyed.
[8:41] Gentle Heron: What is the gist of your presentation? You should be able to summarize your message in about 15 words.
[8:41] Gentle Heron: You will be repeating these words throughout the presentation. Then you will add details, explanations, and background to what you show on the slides as you speak
[8:41] Gentle Heron: If it takes more than a few seconds to understand the text on a slide, there’s too much text. The audience will spend its time reading instead of paying attention to what you are saying. Trying to do both at once means they will probably not do either thing well enough.
[8:42] Gentle Heron: Space around the text on your slide can help focus audience attention. Fewer words can be as powerful as a barrage of information. Bullets are optional in making a list.
[8:42] Gentle Heron: Charts and graphs can be so visually complex that they become eye charts for the audience. What is the gist of the information presented in the graph? Think how to show that point simply.
[8:42] Gentle Heron: 2 Consistent
Consistency among your slides helps your audience focus on your spoken words rather than searching each slide for the meaning of its appearance.
[8:42] Gentle Heron: Consistency is easier to achieve than simplicity.
[8:42] Gentle Heron: PowerPoint offers simple templates that provide visual consistency throughout your presentation. Choose a consistent theme for your template, making sure the text is readable against the background.
[8:43] Gentle Heron: Use only one or two san serif fonts.
[8:43] Gentle Heron: These are the most legible types of fonts. San serif fonts include: Arial, Century Gothic, Franklin Gothic, Tahoma, and Verdana.
[8:43] Gentle Heron: Choose a font you like, and use it consistently to help your audience read your simple text quickly.
[8:43] Gentle Heron: 3 Focused
Your job as presenter is to change data into information, knowledge, and, you hope, wisdom. This means that during planning, your primary job is to focus the content.
[8:44] Gentle Heron: What result do you want your audience to attain?
[8:44] Gentle Heron: Focus on that goal. Be sure you can summarize it simply. State it consistently. All the other information you provide is ancillary.
[8:44] Gentle Heron: It is not your responsibility to be a resource library on the topic. Rather, it’s important that you accept the responsibility to funnel and filter, to focus your message. The best gurus offer simple consistent advice.
[8:44] Gentle Heron: This also means you must know your audience and its needs.
[8:44] Gentle Heron: Think about your presentation from their perspective. They will be! What did you include in your presentation that is uniquely valuable for that specific audience? There’s your focus.
[8:45] avantgarde Frequency: “the traveler on the longest journey carries the smallest pack”
[8:45] Gentle Heron: Good point Avant.
[8:45] Gentle Heron: Don’t trust your audience to draw their own conclusions.
[8:45] Gentle Heron: The beginning and end of the presentation should be a statement of your focus. Every good presentation is a sales presentation.
[8:45] Gentle Heron: When you begin talking, you are building the infrastructure for your audience’s understanding. Create the framework at the start of your presentation by beginning from a concise statement of your focus.
[8:45] Gentle Heron: When you stop talking, you begin a dialog with your audience, whether you have a formal Q&A or you simply leave them to think about what you have said. Therefore it is important for you to simply restate your focus as your conclusion.
[8:46] BlakeLandau Resident: interesting quote Avant.
[8:46] Gentle Heron: 4 Vivid
Each slide should convey one idea. Remember, your mission is to make the presentation simple and focused. Yet with short simple text on a slide, once your audience is done reading, what else will they be thinking about?
[8:46] Gentle Heron: We are a visual culture. Images draw and focus our attention, and our stimulate thinking.
[8:46] Gentle Heron: Use images on slides to add an element of surprise. The audience should think “Oh!” when viewing the image you’ve chosen.
[8:46] Gentle Heron: A good slide image isn’t simply a pleasant cosmetic. It is on the slide to help the audience focus on what you are saying.
[8:47] Gentle Heron: Choose images that depict the content of your spoken presentation, that extend and enhance the printed text. The visual images you choose will create lasting mental images as they connect with your spoken words.
[8:47] Gentle Heron: 5 Show, not tell
We’re a visual culture and we need the combination of oral and text content and visual images for full understanding. This means you should not plan to read your slides. That’s your audience’s task.
[8:47] Gentle Heron: Your slides provide a vivid, focused support, a framework around which you fill in supporting details. The slides state the ideas simply, and you illustrate them with stories and anecdotes.
[8:47] Gentle Heron: Stories help create emotional connections between ideas. They can be both entertaining and informative. People expect a dry presentation of facts leading to a conclusion when they read a research paper.
[8:48] Gentle Heron: However, when attending a presentation, the audience expects in some measure to connect with the presenter.
[8:48] Gentle Heron: The audience hopes you will show them information, not tell it to them. The use of simple vivid stories helps your audience focus on your message and remember it after you are finished.
[8:48] Kali Idziak: Jessica Dally, Community Voice Mail, Seattle sneaking in
[8:48] Gentle Heron: 6 Rule of Thumb
I call this the 5-20-20-30 rule.
[8:48] Buffy Beale: lol Gentle that’s a good one
[8:48] Gentle Heron: 5 main points
Less is more. Don’t put your entire spoken presentation in your slides. As a rule of thumb, each slide should list a maximum of 3-5 main points. As you speak, you will expand those points.
[8:49] Gentle Heron: 20 slides
If you will speak for an hour, 20 slides is the maximum you probably need. Allow your audience to focus on simple text and vivid images as you tell them the message you want them to remember.
[8:49] Gentle Heron: 20 seconds
That’s the maximum time you want your audience to use in absorbing the content of the slide. You want them to focus on your words as you tell the story that will help them remember your message.
[8:49] Gentle Heron: 30 point font
This rule of thumb has two purposes. First, it ensures legibility. More important, it ensures simplicity. If you find yourself using smaller fonts to squeeze in more words, you probably have too many words on the slide.
[8:50] Gentle Heron: That’s it in a nutshell. Planning the slides for your presentation takes effort. You want your message to be focused and simply stated. The slides need to be vivid, yet consistent in appearance. The visual presentation shows what you mean by adding another sensory input, while you tell your story.
[8:50] Gentle Heron: (I’m done!)

[8:56] Mia Kitchensink: woo hoo
[8:56] Aphilo Aarde: Yay, Daniel!

[8:57] Knoh Oh: Yay!
[8:57] Da5id Lusch: thank you
[8:57] BlakeLandau Resident: nice ;-]
[8:57] Reinhold Waechter: i hope this comes to the US very soon!
[8:57] Gentle Heron: Yes Reinhold…. that’s so important!
[8:57] Mia Kitchensink: me too!
[8:57] Reinhold Waechter: and World of Warcraft too – not everyone in these worlds is an escapist!!!!
[8:57] Buffy Beale: yes Reinhold that’s the best part for me, finally a clearer picture of SL
[8:57] Rik Riel: Daniel, perhaps you might introduce yourself and tell us what motivated you to make this film?
[8:57] Da5id Lusch: I hope so too. Any hints for distribution are welcome:-)
[8:57] Da5id Lusch: Ok I try to
[8:58] Francesca Barnes: Sorry, I can’t run video today at the same time–any synopsis?
[8:58] Da5id Lusch: Everything started when the mmo World of Warcraft was released and I subscribed. Immediately I was overwhelmed by the vast territory and the huge range of possibilities to play the game with others.
[8:58] Kate Miranda: Actually I go to RL to escapt all my SL work 🙂
[8:58] Da5id Lusch: In the 1st year I spent 30 whole days online. In this time I watched lots of the machinima work on YouTube, and I was very impressed by the variety and creativity of these flicks.
[8:58] Da5id Lusch: You could find music videos, spoofs on TV shows, short films and ads made with game engines. The only thing missing was a documentary. This fact and the question “Who is the human behind the avatar’s appearance?” formed the basic idea.
[8:58] Gentle Heron: (((Kate))) I know what you mean!
[8:58] Coughran Mayo: Kate: aye aye that
[8:58] Da5id Lusch: The second major point was that I missed in general a documentary about people engaging in synthetic worlds which showed the positive effects such worlds may bear within.
[8:59] Da5id Lusch: Intense research led to Second Life and that opened up a wide horizon to me what is possible to reach engaging in 3d enhanced pixel worlds. After the idea was shaped to a concept and script, the team grew, we found our characters and we fought 5 long years to make this small documentary possible.
[8:59] Kate Miranda: I know you do (((Gentle)))
[8:59] Thinkerer Melville: I will post the presentation by Gentle on my blog — in a few days
[8:59] Da5id Lusch: HOpe this answered my motivation?
[8:59] Rik Riel: yes!
[8:59] Rik Riel: Wow, 5 years
[9:00] Da5id Lusch: yeah it’s average fo a film is 4 in Austria
[9:00] Francesca Barnes: That’s a heck of a gestation!
[9:00] Rik Riel: It must have been very difficult to make this complicated kind of documentary
[9:00] Rik Riel: What were some of the main hurdles you faced?
[9:00] Da5id Lusch: First of all our whole team did NOT consist of big player film biz names. For the decision makers, we were rookies with a good idea and this is often is not enough to receive funding.
[9:01] Reinhold Waechter: we can be lucky that this film got made AT ALL!!!!!
[9:01] Da5id Lusch: Secondly the idea was born when the major Second Life hype was fully in process. They said, “When the film will be done, the SL or WoW hype will be over. Then nobody will be interested in your film anymore.”
[9:01] Empoleon23 Resident: e ai td bom com vcs
[9:01] Da5id Lusch: They couldn’t understand that it was not about SL or WOW but about a new communication form which still is not a hype in the majority of 1st world society.
[9:01] Rik Riel: very true
[9:01] Da5id Lusch: It took me 5 years from the idea till the finished film. The odyssey started with the development funding.
[9:01] Empoleon23 Resident: they speak english
[9:01] Aphilo Aarde: (I’ll add it, and the trailer, as reference to World Univ & Sch’s Virtual Worlds’ subject page – http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Virtual_Worlds – for further distribution)
[9:01] Da5id Lusch: It took us 2 years to get the means to kick start the film. After that, we were able to find all the characters and develop the script.
[9:01] Empoleon23 Resident: i am to
[9:01] Da5id Lusch: After development was done, we were rejected concerning theatrical release. We had to reorient, and found out that there was an online proposal set up by a major German TV network dealing with the subject “Login2Life” was about.
[9:02] Da5id Lusch: We entered the proposal and after 4 months of fighting for pole position we were selected to receive funding, which made all other funders follow (the so called avalanche effect).
[9:02] Da5id Lusch: Looking back I think the biggest problem was that we were young filmmakers trying to make a documentary about a very young phenomenon.-)
[9:02] Rik Riel: nice!
[9:02] Mia Kitchensink: 😀
[9:02] Buffy Beale: 🙂 but that’s useful sometimes to just jump in
[9:03] Chad Mikado: Just finished it… incredible
[9:03] Draxtor Despres: adding to this – since distribution is changing soo much especially in the US
[9:03] Mia Kitchensink: Great video
[9:03] Chayenn Resident: yes just finished to watch it very touching
[9:03] Draxtor Despres: it has become so flexible in terms of the path
[9:03] Buffy Beale: yes it is touching and great going Aphilo!
[9:03] Draxtor Despres: that this could very well after festivals have a theatrical release
[9:03] Draxtor Despres: in certain territories – especially arthouse in the US
[9:04] Da5id Lusch: haha I’d like to see this
[9:04] Draxtor Despres: and in a way with iTunes, Netflix and Hulu – theatrical is somewhat irrelevant
[9:04] Mia Kitchensink: me too
[9:04] Buffy Beale: Draxtor do you have any openings in SL happening?
[9:04] Draxtor Despres: ? Buffy?
[9:04] Rik Riel: we’ll get to that in a minnute….
[9:04] Draxtor Despres: oops crashed
[9:04] Draxtor Despres: relogging
[9:04] Buffy Beale: streaming it here in SL
[9:04] Rik Riel: So you mentioned your motivation for making the film
[9:04] Da5id Lusch: yep
[9:05] Rik Riel: What are the main benefits virtual worlds and MMOs bring to peoples lives?
[9:05] Rik Riel: in your opinino?
[9:05] Rik Riel: opinion?
[9:05] Da5id Lusch: It’s funny that you are asking a rookie
[9:05] Da5id Lusch: While shooting the documentary, I realized that all seven ‘Login2Life’ characters have one thing in common:
[9:05] Da5id Lusch: On long term you need to be sociable to sustain in these worlds and it’s interesting that the majority of society assumes the opposite in judging people who are active in online worlds.
[9:05] Da5id Lusch: Accountable for this is the fact that 95 percent of the media coverage focuses on portraying the dangers of this phenomenon which for sure exist but they are not all-embracing.
[9:05] Da5id Lusch: People are adaptive and learn to deal with the dangers without becoming a victim of the new communication and entertaining platforms. If the mainstream view would change for the better, involved people in general could talk more openly about their online activities without having to justify themselves.
[9:06] Da5id Lusch: Secondly people contributing to other people always gain more social awareness. Maybe the level of awareness will one day be the same so that it doesn’t matter if inworld or in real life, because both are actually the same.
[9:06] Da5id Lusch: …at least I think so.
[9:06] Rik Riel: nice
[9:06] Mia Kitchensink: Yes
[9:06] Ethelred Weatherwax whispers: Sorry I’m late. Dave Dexter, neenah Historical Society, Wisconsin USA
[9:06] Wytchwhisper Sadofsky: agreed
[9:06] Rik Riel: Yes, that is our experience here as well.
[9:06] Gentle Heron: agreed
[9:07] Da5id Lusch: 🙂
[9:07] Rik Riel: That the “virtual” is just as real as physical experiences.
[9:07] jaynine Scarborough: nods
[9:07] Rik Riel: and there is not giant wall between the two
[9:07] Rik Riel: (welcome back drax)
[9:07] Reinhold Waechter: Jaynine is here i thing?? OJaynine is here i thing?? One of the other main protagonists in the film!
[9:07] Reinhold Waechter: WELCOME!!!!!!
[9:07] Francesca Barnes: I actually think you should send this to the Daily Show. John Stewart can be remarkably willing to change his viewpoint.
[9:07] Da5id Lusch: Nobody here likes the word VIRTUAL, right?
[9:07] Rik Riel: Wow, another celeb from the film, nice!
[9:07] Draxtor Despres: i am back!@
[9:07] jaynine Scarborough: hello reinhold 🙂
[9:08] Draxtor Despres: since the US market release comes after Eruo premiere and festival circuit
[9:08] Rik Riel: (SL is lagging badly for me, so apologies for not seeing folks in the audience)

[9:08] Draxtor Despres: hopefully a few cool mainstream shows
[9:08] Draxtor Despres: like the Daily Show
[9:08] Rik Riel: Who do you see as the people who gain the most from being in virtual worlds and MMOs?
[9:09] Draxtor Despres: or maybe Daniel at the Colbert Report???
[9:09] Da5id Lusch: We are getting older and older. Once I heard Alice (Gentle Heron) saying “VAI is a group for the disabled and not yet disabled.”
[9:09] Zotarah Shepherd: 47 people on the Map.
[9:09] Da5id Lusch: I think the main benefit is that we now have communication devices which allow us to participate also when we become old and less mobile.
[9:09] jaynine Scarborough: lol
[9:09] Draxtor Despres: [i want to see Daniel and Colbert battling it out]
[9:09] Da5id Lusch: That’s it
[9:10] Alan Willowind: I’m new, what’s the topic about?
[9:10] Draxtor Despres: topic is the upcoming SL/WoW doc “login2life”
[9:10] Draxtor Despres: Daniel here on stage is the director
[9:10] Buffy Beale: would it be possible for everyone in the film who is here to stand in the front for a group photo? after you’re finished

[9:14] Lotta Flux: good idea Buffy!
[9:14] Rik Riel: great idea!
[9:14] Da5id Lusch: good question. Of course there will. but I can’t tell when.
[9:14] Rik Riel: we’re happy to host a party here
[9:14] You decline =BB= Builder’s Brewery – DOCKSIDE CLASSROOM from A group member named Auryn Beorn.
[9:14] Draxtor Despres: i have a qustion to Daniel – picking up from Viale:will it be possible to release a few still photos from the film?
[9:14] Buffy Beale: and we know how to throw a party 🙂
[9:14] Aphilo Aarde: Daniel, What’s your favorite synopsis of the film online? URL? Is the film in http://wikipedia.org or http://imdb.com ?
[9:14] Da5id Lusch: I hope right after the film i screened in Sundance..If it gets invited
[9:14] Mia Kitchensink: Yes
[9:15] Da5id Lusch: fav synopsis:http://www.facebook.com/pages/LOGIN2LIFE/143930895637914?sk=info
[9:15] Draxtor Despres: good question Ahilo!!!
[9:15] Draxtor Despres: someone gotta put it up on Wikipedia!!!
[9:15] Draxtor Despres: if it ain’t there it ain’t existing
[9:15] Draxtor Despres: should be on IMDB though
[9:15] Draxtor Despres: i will check [as the senior marketing oficer]
[9:15] Da5id Lusch: thomas should do the imdb thing but you know…
[9:16] Da5id Lusch: time is passing slower here in Vienna
[9:16] Draxtor Despres: in Vienna the time now is 1825
[9:16] Da5id Lusch: any questions?
[9:16] Buffy Beale: Question: I know it’s early but do you see a follow-up film to this one in the future?
[9:17] Mia Kitchensink: Definitely
[9:17] Da5id Lusch: you are not the first one asking
[9:17] Rik Riel: it should be a series
[9:17] Draxtor Despres: i have one – how hard was it to get folks to agree to open up for the camera???
[9:17] Da5id Lusch: Right now I’m looking for topicws
[9:17] Draxtor Despres: SL residents are famously guarded about their privacy [not me but others]
[9:17] Aphilo Aarde: (I haven’t been able to get Wrold Univ & Sch up on Wikipedia because we haven’t had any 3rd party coverage yet – http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University)
[9:17] Buffy Beale: yes there are many stories in SL, if we have a suggestion where do we send it?
[9:17] Da5id Lusch: You can send suggestion to my mail adress firstname.lastname@example.org
[9:17] Buffy Beale: thanks
[9:18] Da5id Lusch: ty
[9:18] You decline =BB= Builder’s Brewery – DOCKSIDE CLASSROOM from A group member named Auryn Beorn.
[9:18] Buffy Beale: was there any time you thought this is a bad idea?
[9:18] Da5id Lusch: I’m glad to do get some hints…
[9:18] Alan Willowind: why isn’st the voice turned on?
[9:18] Buffy Beale: we don’t use voice here Alan, just chat
[9:18] Nany Kayo: Hard question, Buffy!
[9:18] Knoh Oh: Have you gotten much feedback from people who have never been in-world? Does this film make them want to try?
[9:19] Rik Riel: We don’t use voice for our events here, to increase accessibility and to have an archive
[9:19] Buffy Beale: you can see our other meetings on the web site link I gave you
[9:19] Rik Riel: oo good questions!
[9:19] Aphilo Aarde: Any way of guaging to what degree more folks< like those represented in the film, have come into virtual worlds?
[9:19] Da5id Lusch: hmm
[9:19] Nany Kayo: Who has worked very hard and not wondered whether they were wasting their time.
[9:19] Da5id Lusch: Actually I showed the film maybe to 10 persons directly
[9:20] Da5id Lusch: I don’t know.
[9:20] Da5id Lusch: I hope we’ll see after it is broadcasted the 1st time
[9:20] Francesca Barnes: Me sense a social psychology research project…
[9:20] Draxtor Despres: rephrase the question Aphilo? not sure what you mean?
[9:21] Aphilo Aarde: the film is young … but I’m curious if anyone disabled has seen it and gone into SL as a consequence
[9:21] Draxtor Despres: no Aphilo – since the film has not aired yet
[9:21] Da5id Lusch: not yet because it hasn’t been broadcasted
[9:21] Draxtor Despres: but I am certain that a lot of “stakeholders” will see the possibilities
[9:21] Coughran Mayo: that’s just a technicality Drax
[9:21] Mia Kitchensink: That will be a wonderful thing.
[9:22] Gentle Heron: People do come into SL because they are disabled, Aphilo.
[9:22] Nuala Foxchase nods. “I’ve met a few.”
[9:22] Draxtor Despres: the film clearly shows how SL can enhance the lives of many diverse people
[9:22] Aphilo Aarde: Have other similar/related films had a similar consequence, which similar audiences you could then reach?
[9:22] Rhiannon Chatnoir: once you do the digital release, are you planning on putting it out to other RL film festivals or open to doing screenings in cities
[9:22] Draxtor Despres: in many ways – and that was evident at the press conference in Munich – NOT VERY MANY have even heard about SL much
[9:22] Zinnia Zauber: I have shared your preview at lectures and it has inspired non – virtual worlds types to look more into what can be done here. Thank you for that.
[9:22] Knoh Oh: (If there was a specific SLURL to an orientation area associated with the film, that might allow one to track.)
[9:23] Nuala Foxchase: Likewise elderly people enjoying the fact they can be as active or as playful as they like without people judging by appearances. 😉
[9:23] JoJa Dhara: @Rhiannon good question ..indeed luv to see that happening..
[9:23] Zotarah Shepherd smiles at Gentle: Thanks in large part to Virtual Abilities
[9:23] Draxtor Despres: and by that I mean strangely enough have not even heard/or forgotten about some of the hype in 06/07
[9:23] Aphilo Aarde: Agreed, Gentle .. I’m curious about new disabled people coming in as a conseqence of seeing such as film as Loing2Life, and how even to measure this.
[9:23] Aphilo Aarde: Yes, Knoh!
[9:23] Da5id Lusch: @Rhiannon: We plan to release it first on a major festival after it is screened here in Germaany.
[9:23] Gentle Heron: Good point,Nuala.
[9:23] Rik Riel: TechSoup would be happy to help organize a showing of the film in San Francisco (the home of linden lab)
[9:23] Draxtor Despres: so that is a very good thing I think personally! The film starts with a clean slate in public perception for many! Yes, there are typical preconceived issues you run in time and again but the public’s mind is FORGETFUL!!!
[9:24] Zotarah Shepherd: SF I would go.
[9:24] Rhiannon Chatnoir: would love to host it at SLCC of course and there are also regional SL/Metaverse groups around the country and in Europe
[9:24] Nuala Foxchase: Personally, I think that the hype has worked against it to some extent. Too many people seem either shocked because they didn’t realise it was still going when the hype died down, or else that it’s just a 3D dating/sex simulator.
[9:24] Alan Willowind: <———making a non profit movie for a non profit org.’
[9:24] JoJa Dhara: @rhiannon me smiles 😉
[9:25] Da5id Lusch: I’m overwhelmed with so many statements
[9:25] Da5id Lusch: nedd time ztoi read it sorry I’m slow:-9
[9:25] Draxtor Despres: @nuala but that is what I am saying: hype is long past and the recent Login2Life events we did showed that folks do not EVEN REMEMBER the bad things in that detauil 🙂
[9:25] Rik Riel: perhaps you can read them and respond more later?
[9:25] Rik Riel: We can share on nonprofitcommons.org and betterverse
[9:25] Alan Willowind: why doesn’t someone turn on voice?
[9:25] Da5id Lusch: yes. I’d like to see the filme screened in SF.
[9:25] Nany Kayo: That is really insightful and inspiring, Drax
[9:25] JoJa Dhara: Da5id we just wanna show the outworld how great this platform is!! 😉
[9:25] Rik Riel: We don’t use voice for our SL meetings at the NPC generally
[9:25] Da5id Lusch: I would be very thankful for this oppertunity
[9:26] Buffy Beale: that’s great Alan maybe you can talk about it at one of our other meetings here
[9:26] Gentle Heron: Thanks for that JoJa!
[9:26] Alan Willowind: when?, Buffy?
[9:26] Wytchwhisper Sadofsky: its easier to transcribe without voice
[9:26] Da5id Lusch: That’s why I did the film
[9:26] Draxtor Despres: let’s talk to Linden Lab about screening it in SF
[9:26] Rik Riel: Daniel, we are so happy you were able to join us today!
[9:26] Draxtor Despres: there is an org Rik and worked with

[9:29] Rik Riel: Perhaps daniel and people in the film could stand together for pictures while we do our final Open Mic announcements?
