Started this task earlier this week, but with a bit of a disadvantage. Turns out I don’t have many email addresses of other 23 things participants. I had book buster of course, and just one other, HelenKitty, only on google chat she is known by another name. Wasn’t too sure if it was her at first.
So i chatted to book buster, about chatting pretty much. A meeting then took her away.
Then i chatted to HelenKitty about music and many other things, and pretty soon i got the hang of it. i type, then they type, and so on.
Come the workshop i was chatting away with just about everyone there and had numerous windows open.
I was also introduced to meebo which can host various chat services, such as the gmail chat which i currently use; good to know that if i start up any others that they too can also be used through meebo.
I am now opening my meebo account every morning and seeing if other 23 thing participants (now that I have their emails, courtesy of book buster) are active and available for a chat.
