Last week, I was grading some papers at school, trying to finalize things for the end of the summer semester. I had a question for Elena, so I pulled up a chat with her to see what she thought. In doing so, I thought about the cool Mac program --iChat and offered her an invite. Moments later, Elena, N and I were talking, face-to-face, even though we were about ten miles apart. But with a simple high-speed Internet connection, I was able to give N a tour of where her daddy works (just my office) and talk in person, which she loved! Here's a pic of our chat. This has also been a great way for me to keep in touch with my friend Tony, who lives up in Chicagoland, and is, conveniently, a Mac-user.
