[17:09] Yvette Kumsung: woa [17:10] Yvette Kumsung: i checked it out and everyone looked the same so i sort of got disinterested [17:11] Yvette Kumsung: wait did you check the stuff I put in the wiki? [17:11] Yvette Kumsung: i updated it with the things becca advised [17:12] USA Brody: I thought it was more narrowed down than that. [17:12] Yvette Kumsung: we have to assign what people should be doing in the next few days [17:12] USA Brody: yes. exactly [17:12] Yvette Kumsung: it is more narrowed down than that [17:12] USA Brody: we worked on this with becca extesively [17:12] USA Brody: extensively [17:12] GeneKoo Li: so what is the actual project itself, what are you doing? [17:12] Yvette Kumsung: there were two sessions that we held with becca [17:12] USA Brody: yes. exactly. [17:13] Yvette Kumsung: yes [17:13] USA Brody: both of which we worked on the thesis [17:13] Frappe Lapointe: yes [17:13] USA Brody: narrowing down of [17:13] USA Brody: so. I nominate Yvette to delegate the work as our leader [17:13] Yvette Kumsung: Um, did you see the last group session? [17:14] Frappe Lapointe: yes [17:14] Frappe Lapointe: and that is one of the peice we are working on now [17:14] Yvette Kumsung: I thought it was identified [17:14] USA Brody: well. in the meetings yvetted and I were in. we moved forward with the thesis. [17:14] USA Brody: frappe too [17:14] GeneKoo Li: yvette, usa, what did you discuss [17:14] USA Brody: brein [17:14] GeneKoo Li: brein? [17:14] Yvette Kumsung: that was one of the problems we discussed in the previous one [17:14] USA Brody: yes. precisely. [17:14] Yvette Kumsung: that other sounds could conflict with ongoing chats [17:15] Yvette Kumsung: yeah [17:15] USA Brody: I thought the text was posted on the wiki [17:16] Yvette Kumsung: Things were lost on Moodle, but we updated things on the public wiki [17:16] USA Brody: right. lets nominate a leader to delegate the work [17:16] USA Brody: Yvette! [17:16] USA Brody: Frappe [17:16] USA Brody: Esmond [17:16] Yvette Kumsung: One of the problems we've had is that in the past few sessions, not all of our members have been present [17:16] Frappe Lapointe: That is fine [17:17] Yvette Kumsung: so the groups have never been complete [17:17] USA Brody: Yvette I nominate you to be our official leader. All in favor say EYE! [17:17] Yvette Kumsung: So if one is missing, then someone else is missing, etc. [17:17] USA Brody: EYE! [17:17] USA Brody: the EYE's have it [17:18] Yvette Kumsung: Nono, the point is that we had the thesis [17:18] Yvette Kumsung: and we have decided on making a room [17:18] USA Brody: great [17:18] Yvette Kumsung: with a streaming audio box [17:18] USA Brody: this is a problem right now [17:18] Yvette Kumsung: that demonstrates how voice is used in a real-world situation [17:19] USA Brody: Dr. [17:19] Yvette Kumsung: so various voice tracks will be combined into one track [17:19] GeneKoo Li: what do you mean "various" and "combined" [17:19] Yvette Kumsung: like for instance, now you can hear typing and talking at the same time [17:19] Yvette Kumsung: so from the sound box, you will hear those two sounds [17:20] USA Brody: Gene Koo! [17:20] USA Brody: are you still here! [17:20] Yvette Kumsung: and for instance, in group talks, we can have streams where a lot of people are [17:20] GeneKoo Li: that sounds pretty clear what you are doing [17:20] GeneKoo Li: no your audio is fine [17:20] Yvette Kumsung: talking at the same time and people don't understand each other [17:20] GeneKoo Li: would htis be scripted or "real"? [17:21] USA Brody: Gene. Do you want to be in our group? [17:21] Yvette Kumsung: the thing we have to do now is decide who records which track and who will do the final sound editing [17:21] Yvette Kumsung: We already have built the physical room [17:21] GeneKoo Li: (i can help the group but I can't be in the group) [17:21] Frappe Lapointe: Okay [17:21] GeneKoo Li: So what needs to be done now? [17:21] USA Brody: gene. I can't hear you [17:21] GeneKoo Li: r u on track? [17:22] Yvette Kumsung: we also have to designate who we want to represent [17:22] GeneKoo Li: scripting it isn't disasterous, either [17:22] GeneKoo Li: u have more control and can make your exact point [17:22] GeneKoo Li: i mean, scripting a dialogue [17:22] GeneKoo Li: or the words that ppl say [17:23] GeneKoo Li: since it sounds like you want more than just a dialogue? [17:23] Yvette Kumsung: having translucent text boxes hanging in mid-air? [17:23] GeneKoo Li: yeah it'd be nice if SL allowed agents wouldn't it [17:23] USA Brody: one question on grading. How is everything going to be weighted? Any idea Gene? [17:23] GeneKoo Li: then you could have the agents talking and illustrating the situation quite nicely [17:23] USA Brody: I agree [17:23] GeneKoo Li: tho i suppose you could use abstract shapes [17:23] GeneKoo Li: sure [17:24] GeneKoo Li: if u meet on sunday I can be there, if u think i can help [17:24] GeneKoo Li: u should meet asap :) and not wait for me [17:24] Yvette Kumsung: We're not going to get anywhere if we go on with ifs [17:25] GeneKoo Li: r there specific tasks ppl can do in the meantime? [17:25] Frappe Lapointe: Can we all meet tomorrow? [17:25] Frappe Lapointe: not you Gene of course [17:25] Yvette Kumsung: Why don't I list specific tasks and we can all sign up our names next to the list and edit the list [17:25] GeneKoo Li: yay! [17:25] Frappe Lapointe: sounds good [17:25] Frappe Lapointe: to me [17:25] GeneKoo Li: ok g/l guys
