We had a training session today, Andy and you are
right, it does make us feel childish but
it helps with the explorations. My team and I
really enjoyed it, though and would have continued
but had some irking issues relating to the
program and had to quit, two quick hours later.

We started at got an avatar and
explore the site at San Jose State where
the 4 presentations will be broadcast.

Some of us changed the color of our hair, flexed
our muscles, flew ( over cuckoo's nest)
and then ran out of time.
