Hello
Penelope Gardner
32:52
So good to see the of you I met at the convention…Don Byrd, Luke Phillips
Peter Campbell

helloooo
Jacob Hess
34:30
How cool is THIS?!! A Thoughtful Debate happening in the United States...who'd have thunk it?!
Jacob Hess
34:58
...(And online)
Dona Sauerburger
44:04
Very similar to how to applaud a deaf-blind speaker -- we pound the floor with our feet so they can feel the vibrations at the podium.
Del Kimbler
44:08
a shortcut to Bang is to hold down the space bar with one hand and bang with the other, then release the space bar
Rob Lee
45:28
I am using my phone mute, as it is easier. Is that ok?
Del Kimbler
47:20
Yes, Rob Lee, do what is easy for you
Don Byrd
48:56
Del, what does holding the space bar do? It doesn’t seem to unmute me.
Paul Norris
49:42
Don, it works when you have focus on the Zoom window. It works on Macintosh, at least.
Don Byrd
50:41
Ah, got it; thanks.
Del Kimbler
50:48
Yes, if you have recently clicked on the chat or participant panel, you will need to click anywhere on the display of speakers to give that the focus
Mel Pine
52:32
Hi, Jason. Good to see that you’re here. We’ll get the debate started soon.
David Lieberman
54:00
I don't see a raised hand image
Joshua Chen
54:37
I don’t see the raised hand image either
Paul Norris
56:07
It’s not exactly an image, it’s a button in the lower right hand corner that says “raise hand”. Lower right hand corner of the attendees window.
Donna Murphy
01:00:59
You need to click on participant and chat at the bottom, then you'll see raise hand partway down the panel.
Jacob Hess
01:13:04
great question, Marly!
Marly Silverman
01:15:02
Thank you Jacob! BY THE WAY, I am originally from Brazil. :)
Randy Lioz
01:18:42
Yup, thanks!
Paul Norris
01:19:28
Marly, what part of Brazil?
Donna Murphy
01:38:48
Once someone has started to talk, we'll lower all hands. You'll have to raise your hand again, to differentiate speakers from questioners.
Immanuel Jarvis
01:57:02
yes. affirmative
Jacob Hess
01:59:02
Lovely, Dona!
Rob Lee
01:59:19
agreed
Joshua Chen
02:05:52
Immanuel how did you get a hold of my childhood bio?
Joshua Chen
02:05:56
:)
April Lawson
02:06:13
:)
Jacob Hess
02:08:09
I banged my desk so hard, Immanuel - the camera fell off...(:
Dona Sauerburger
02:09:44
You said it, Imanual -- need to be patient with ourselves!
Joshua Chen
02:09:57
Not an analogy Immanuel. You stole my bio! Shoplifting, car wreck. Don’t talk about the time I didn’t get stopped in Missouri with marijuana.
Joshua Chen
02:10:16
Good job Immanuel! :)
Immanuel Jarvis
02:10:55
👍🏾
Jacob Hess
02:11:14
Immanuel, well done. You're getting at the *way* we criticize so effectively...a good parent offers "critique" of their kids all the time - but never to the point of "you stupid kid!" So much of this centers on the intent...are we condemning an irredemable country/child...or loving them by teaching them + highlighting ways to improve?
David Iwinski
02:12:01
Immanuel, bravo! Well spoken and absolutely accurate! Impressive!
Dona Sauerburger
02:12:37
Well said, Ron!
Rob Lee
02:13:32
I don’t think we are supposed to argue the points here, but since it is out there, I have to say that personifying the country is a false analogy, in the same way that a corporation being looked at as a person creates great problems. Well said, but I think off the point.
April Lawson
02:13:57
that’s true folks - please don’t argue points out here. encouragements good tho!
Paul Williams
02:14:25
That mural was the work of a Russian émigré and Communist named Victor Arnautoff
Jacob Hess
02:18:34
Will do, April...easy to slip into more arguments in the comment thread. I did the same thing.
April Lawson
02:20:00
gratzi :)
Joshua Chen
02:20:54
Great job Matt
Joshua Chen
02:21:07
Thinking outside the box
Don Byrd
02:23:12
Bravo, Randy!
Don Byrd
02:23:36
(I meant to say that 10 minutes ago, sorry.)
Jacob Hess
02:27:02
I'd like to propose a possible tradition for our newly inaugurated Better Angels ONLINE Debates...that we "take a picture together" at the end of the debate. 1-2-3 "smile!" and one of us (or any of us) can take a screenshot?
April Lawson
02:29:27
jacob are you able to do that?
April Lawson
02:29:29
i can ask people to smile
Jacob Hess
02:29:35
YEP
April Lawson
02:29:37
great
Rob Lee
02:31:12
Great experience, thanks you! Really impressed with how well the technology worked. Great job all
