[20:45:43] <Cbrown1023> when american students don't want to read their reading assignments,
[20:45:48] <Cbrown1023> they read the summary
[20:45:56] <Cbrown1023> sparknotes provides summaries ;-)
[20:47:05] <seanw> kay, there are multiple similar publications around here I think
[20:47:08] <seanw> I may even recognise that name.
[20:48:32] <brianmc> Can I label the suggestion that editors will migrate from WP to WN as Wackynews?
[20:49:05] <Markie996> hheheh
[20:49:16] <Markie996> was nice to hear that others outside WN believe that
[20:49:19] <Markie996> looks good for the future
[20:49:28] <Markie996> must keep the cabal secret though!!
[20:49:50] <Markie996> no seriously it is good news for us
[20:49:51] <brianmc> Markie996: we need to keep looking for places to put WN links.
[20:50:01] <Markie996> also good to here abot the youtube thing
[20:50:06] <Markie996> have we got a url yet for that
[20:50:10] <Markie996> brian: yes
[20:50:17] <Markie996> must get back to that uni proposal
[20:50:18] <brianmc> Not so sure about boobtube
[20:50:55] <Markie996> http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Wikinews:Spread_Wikinews/students
[20:51:02] <Markie996> this would be a good thing to bring up here
[20:51:26] <Markie996> hmm wide audinece but not too fond on the fact that its youtube but its a valuable sacrifice i think
