When not engrossed reading a good book on my kindle, watching science fiction, singing with the Cappella Singers or looking for new apps for my Iphone or Ipad l also trawl through the Internet and post useful articles on my Blog. I welcome your thoughtful contributions or questions.  I mainly hangout on Google+ where I find a nice level of engagement and plenty of interesting posts. I also use Twitter and Facebook. For video conversations I use Skype but am actively looking for an alternative. I am still amazed at what you can do on the Internet and where it's possible I enjoy being an early adopter.

I am a Secular Humanist and passionate supporter of Social Justice issues and can be found on Google+ in heated but respectful debate on these and many other topics. When reading I enjoy Science Fiction, Fantasy and History as well as good smattering of Politics. If I had to choose a hero a word that is often over used I would say Carl Sagan. So that's me if you want to know more just drop me a line via my Contact Page or through the social media sites I have mentioned.

Conversation with Convore

Convore

Group chatting seams to be the flavour of the month. I recently heard about a new group chat service called Convore. It is almost a mixture of the old IRC chat with  web based group chatting. Here is their own description of the service.

What is Convore?

Convore is a quick way to instant message with groups of friends in real-time. You can join in on conversations about topics that interest you, or start your own conversations. Don't worry about missing anything, because we keep track of what you're not seeing, so that when you return, you can easily catch up! But don't take our word for it, join in on the fun and see for yourself.

You don't even need to create an account you can use your Facebook or Twitter credentials. I recently joined and found it a very elegant and easy service to get your head around. If you running elearning or blended learning sites you might want to take Convore for a test drive.
