Also, consider this a solicitation for any ideas as to what interesting things we could do with chat rooms. Perhaps we could try some round-robin short-form writing, some sort of shared-world project, or even critiques. Since chat is a little more easygoing, it might be a good place to play around with stuff that doesn't really fit on the Q&A site.
It's easy to overlook, the Overlook Hotel. It's empty and a little bit creepy.
I'd love to see chat rooms used for brainstorming, prompts, sharing short bits of work. Although I have to wonder, do the same licensing issues apply to creative work in chat rooms? I assume so, since it's archived and available.
Perhaps we could have hosted topics and guests at specific times.
