The conference took place a week ago, on 2nd July 2008. Five participants joined via SKYPE at 15:00 and finished at 15:40 of Central Europe Time. All of participants were from the Czech Republic. The topic of the presentation was about Computer Architecture. The participants received prepared materials before the conference. In the course of the conference the speaker sent through SKYPE the additional material in the format of Power Point Digital Design and Computer Architecture by
Dr. Robert D. Kent. The material appeared to be absorbing, it looks like a glossary of technical English. Everybody, who is trying to comprehend basic matters connected with computers in English, could be recommended to study it. You can have it if you send your e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Unfortunately our first SKYPE conference was not successful. First of all we could not hear each other sufficiently well. Some of our number heard only every second word. Sometimes reverberation occurred. Moreover, the material Digital Design despite its high quality was too long and its sending and opening took too much time.
Nevertheless, the idea of live conversation through the Internet is productive and many people like it. Actually we will try to do away with equipment faults and shortcomings. Furthermore, we improve organizational conditions and preparedness. Thus the next
SKYPE conversation conference will be held on 16th July at 15:00 of Central Europe Time. The topic is World Wide Web.
Your participation and brainwaves are welcomed!
