I finally managed to add audio to my AGU in America blog. It wasn't easy! I had to call a number in California to record the message. I tried to use Skype to do this, but it didn't work (despite assurances from Blogger help staff that it would). I finally used my cell phone but was not pleased with the audio quality. Still, it's there! Check it out at http://agu2006.blogspot.com.
Four of the Japanese participants in AGU in America have left comments on the blog. Yesterday I sent them all two emails: one regular and one Springdoo, encouraging them to visit the blog an to leave comments.
