Hi everybody!~ ^.^ I know you have heard a lot about an "AP Sleepover", being directed by Rose, and so I have come on board to help out. I've talked with Rose and we have had lots ideas to make this fun. Everyone is invited to attend! We will be having a cross-site sleepover, using the AP Chat, Skype (audio conference), and Mebeam (webcam conference). We realize that not everyone has skype, or a webcam, so we'll be having it on AP chat as well, so everyone can be involved. ^_^ So, now comes the other details, of dates, and what we should do. So look out for polls, where everyone can decide what is best.
Technical info: If anyone is interested in getting Skype, it is a free download, that allows you to talk pc to pc for free. Saves on cellphone minutes. ^.~ And for mebeam, you don't have to sign up for anything, just need a cam.
Take a look for yourselves:
Skype download: http://www.skype.com/download/skype/windows/
Note: Skype is also available for Macs, and Linux operating systems.
Mebeam site: http://www.mebeam.com
How this works, is that you type in a room name, and you're in, and it is private too. So that's always YAY!
It'll also be cool if we can have an idea who is interested, so please leave us comments, suggestions, or questions. You can reach me at Rin@ani-pock.net or Rose at Rose@ani-pock.net. Thanks everyone! I hope this is an idea that is interesting and will be fun!! I think it's exciting.
EDIT: Here are some special features for the cross-media.
Show and Tell: Chat and Video
Stories and Kareoke: Audio
Contests: Video and Chat
And, prizes are be considered. We'll see.
Will add more details about the contests later!~
