    The Guardian for this meeting was Adams Rubble. The comments are by Adams Rubble.

    I made the opening of this session but had to leave halfway through.

    Adams Rubble: Hello Alfred :)
    Adams Rubble: Hello Eliza :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Adams :) you're here today...
    Adams Rubble: Just for a brief time
    Adams Rubble: I came to claim the log
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, okay.
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Adams Rubble: I am here from Milwaukee
    Adams Rubble: Interestingly I forgot about the hour time difference and the PaB session is one hour earlier than I expected but it worked out well to get here
    Eliza Madrigal: Sure to be an exciting day
    Adams Rubble: This is the third and last day
    Eliza Madrigal: Ohhh, so exciting week then?
    Adams Rubble: yes, it has been interesting seeing ths skating up so close
    Adams Rubble: they are very very fast :)
    Eliza Madrigal: like a hockey game?
    Adams Rubble: they go 35 mph
    Adams Rubble: speedskating
    Adams Rubble: Shani Davis and all
    Adams Rubble: one of the two olympic training sites is in Milwaukee
    Eliza Madrigal: :) I'm not too familiar with speedskating, but the whoosh of skates during a hockey game is something exhilharating...
    Eliza Madrigal: so I imagine they sort of take you with them as they rush by...
    Adams Rubble: lots of wooshing
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: love that feeling of being caught up
    Adams Rubble: I was surprised at the number of little jobs that have to be done to make something like this ha[[en
    Adams Rubble: happen
    Adams Rubble: lots of volunteers who are dedicated to the sport
    Adams Rubble: one of the interesting jobs are the people who put down the little cones between lanes
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, dedicated to someone 'elses' dream but also the dream of that shared exhilaration....
    Adams Rubble: they have to go up before the zamboni machine comes and then go down again
    Eliza Madrigal smiles..yes like the folks who run for tennis balls
    Adams Rubble: the people who do this are on speed skates themselves
    Eliza Madrigal: oh, fun :)
    Adams Rubble: they have a rhythm for the job, reaching into the basket and then putting down a cone, etc.
    Adams Rubble: quite a little skill :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: as a teen I used to volunteer with a friend, to hand out water and such at races... loved the ones who would come by and say "just throw it on me"...
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: oi, girls :)
    Adams Rubble: the building is very cold, would not work here :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Alfred :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah
    Eliza Madrigal: yes I imagine not
    Adams Rubble: Hello Alfred
    Adams Rubble: It is about 40 degrees in the building with big blowers blowing it all around
    Eliza Madrigal: how fun
    Alfred Kelberry: lucky boxy alone with girls this morning :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Adams Rubble: they turn down the blowers for the 20 minute intervals while the zamboni machine is going around and you begin to think "Oh, it is not so cold"
    Alfred Kelberry: sorry, got carried away in rl. missed quite a bit of chat...
    Adams Rubble: Then as the race is about to resume suddenly they come on again :)
    Eliza Madrigal: haha, thanks for sharing that sensation
    Alfred Kelberry: 40 f?
    Adams Rubble: It is nice to be in this nice warm pavilion (hehe)
    Adams Rubble: yes, fahrenheit Allfred
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, 4 c then
    Adams Rubble: I am not good at converting
    Alfred Kelberry: chilly :)
    Alfred Kelberry: google is :)
    Eliza Madrigal: The reverse is often true for me... feeling very hot here in FL so can be refreshing to sit on an SL snowy mountain top
    Eliza Madrigal: TGFG
    Adams Rubble: Ohh 4 degrees C sounds colder :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: tgfg?
    Eliza Madrigal: thank Goodness for google
    Eliza Madrigal: @.@
    Alfred Kelberry: oh, never heard this one :)
    Eliza Madrigal: nor had I til just then :)
    Alfred Kelberry: i'm a rare guest on a rink, but this summer i saw how a woman was putting cones for ice skating... kind of mesmerising :)
    Adams Rubble: yes it is
    Alfred Kelberry: i like the cool fresh air inside
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: and body tight suits :)
    Adams Rubble: It is helpful to move around a bit
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, i was taking pics :)
    Alfred Kelberry: *eats a cake*
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: Sorry so quiet this morning... feeling strange today :)
    Alfred Kelberry: i like morning quietness

    Alfred Kelberry: and i feel comfy with you two and silence :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Nice, thanks :) yes sharing silent space
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: *sips tea*
    Alfred Kelberry: oh, it's cool. i need to pour more :)
    Eliza Madrigal: oatmeal is in its last stage... simmering
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: on water or milk?
    Eliza Madrigal: coffee brewing but I think I'll make tea...
    Eliza Madrigal: water in this case, as better for my son
    Alfred Kelberry: i thought milk is healthy for kids :)
    Eliza Madrigal: suppose for most, yes :)
    Alfred Kelberry: btw, oatmeal has to be cooked on low :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Adams Rubble: The silence has been nice
    Alfred Kelberry: um, but there are different techniques :)
    Adams Rubble: I am going to have to go now
    Alfred Kelberry: aww... :(
    Adams Rubble: Nice to see both of you :)
    Eliza Madrigal: at the beginning fast and furious bowling... then settling into a long simmer...

    Alfred Kelberry: i think partly it's cause i'm wearing them as well :)
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: unusual glasses with no bridge...
    Eliza Madrigal: in RL I always wanted to wear glasses... faked bad vision for a while so that I could...
    Eliza Madrigal: then was given glasses... which came with headaches and I fessed up :)
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, you mean boxy? i meant in rl actually :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah :) yes, I did think you were talking about boxy

    Alfred Kelberry: oh, yaku! :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: so close to cape canaveral eliza ?
    Alfred Kelberry: nice to see you
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, shuttle launches are the frustration of my existence... moreso than hurricanes....
    Eliza Madrigal: not close enough to go without 'planning' and hotel, etc
    Alfred Kelberry: frustration?
    Eliza Madrigal: yet each time we've tried, something has happened and we've not gotten to see
    Eliza Madrigal: weather, etc
    Alfred Kelberry: aww...
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: sigh
    Eliza Madrigal: I love roughly 4-5 hrs away... and well 'busy life' with various schedules...
    Eliza Madrigal: *live
    Eliza Madrigal: I can't type today
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, not too close
    Eliza Madrigal: and not too far either

    Eliza Madrigal: How is everything Riddle?
    Riddle Sideways: I really dislike traveling

    Me too Riddle but it is nice to be somewhere else once in a while. Too bad we can't just tp

    Eliza Madrigal: Do you?
    Eliza Madrigal: Where did you go?
    Riddle Sideways: have decided
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe you should have gone by parachute :)
    Riddle Sideways: air travel is not fun anymore
    Alfred Kelberry: you mean security measures, etc?
    Riddle Sideways: hours and hours of sitting
    Eliza Madrigal: I love it... sometimes even love being cramped too slose to someone and navigating where to rest my arm...
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, hours and hours!? You must have gone somewhere interesting then
    Riddle Sideways: that use to be fun
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, long hours on board
    Eliza Madrigal: and yes the hours and hours does make a big difference :)
    Riddle Sideways: not that interesting
    Yakuzza Lethecus: are there highspeedtrains in the US ?
    Eliza Madrigal: alas
    Riddle Sideways: get there and sit for more hours in meetings
    Eliza Madrigal: ack
    Riddle Sideways: no hi speed trains
    Eliza Madrigal: Yakuzza, always 'talk' of highspeed rail
    Riddle Sideways: few slow speed trains
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: So happy to be home then Riddle?
    Riddle Sideways: yes, is so happy
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: if you want high speed rail go to china :)
    Alfred Kelberry: these guys are amazing
    Eliza Madrigal: Adams was mentioning earlier, speedskaters rushing by...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and they have the technologie from germany/france/japan
    Alfred Kelberry: left japan behind
    Eliza Madrigal: yes?
    Eliza Madrigal: I was so impressed with Japan's system...
    Eliza Madrigal: sooooooo polite
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hopefully you can stay put for a while then RIddle...
    Eliza Madrigal: and the next time you travel maybe for pleasure :)
    Riddle Sideways: maybe
    Riddle Sideways: after meeting people once, I can stay remote biz with them
    Eliza Madrigal: Excellent
    Eliza Madrigal: I suppose RL meetings are still very crucial
    Riddle Sideways: not sure
    Eliza Madrigal: for conveying some kind of trust maybe?
    Alfred Kelberry: riddle, bring them to sl :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Riddle Sideways: maybe
    Riddle Sideways: there are some biz oriented virtual worlds too
    Eliza Madrigal: read an article this morning.... felt the guy was in a total blind spot but a few interesting points: http://www.thenewatlantis.com/public...ind-the-screen
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza, as telepresence advances in its "presence" ability, i think rl meetings will be less of a critical moment
    Eliza Madrigal: How will that happen Alf?
    Riddle Sideways: thanks
    Alfred Kelberry: besides, you pay for this "trust" a good amount of money - air tickets, hotels, etc
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i wonder about the transition of the economy
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, well if money doesn't circulate economy doesn't grow?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: since it´s more an more information work and when ppl don´t have to meet nobody needs hotels/planes/congress centeres
    Yakuzza Lethecus: there are fixed costs for those
    Eliza Madrigal: yes me too Ya... Also, for me the internet creates more appreciation of the tactile and tangible...
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza, they do either way
    Eliza Madrigal: so think the author missed that especially... that perhaps there is purposefulness available that wasn't before
    Eliza Madrigal: but I do wonder how the current way of business thrives in that :)
    Riddle Sideways: most of the people I met did not need to be met
    Alfred Kelberry: yaku, i think we see it happening already
    Eliza Madrigal: hmm
    Riddle Sideways: only the older CEO types
    Eliza Madrigal: Time for the guardian session :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Luci :)
    Lucinda Lavender: :) all
    Lucinda Lavender: I came back in where I left last night...loss of internet
    Alfred Kelberry: riddle, yaku? are you going?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, see you then :)
