Chat with 4th Grader Kiana in Holland

On Wednesday, October 11, 2006, we met via Skype with a 4th grader who's been in Holland with her parents since the start of the school year. She'll not be returning to the States until January, after our Winter Holidays, so we thought it might be a good idea to get together before that. Our first meeting was eventful and lasted nearly an hour, with very little audio drop out and a very good video connection.

I had Skype running on my laptop and the laptop connected to a projector and we ran audio through my Polycom Communicator. There was some skippiness in the audio but generally we heard everything Kiana said from her apartment in Holland and she heard everything we said in our computer lab in Nashville, Tennessee. This is certainly one of the good ways the earth is "flattening."
