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.

    Look at me, saying "we". That's one of the more amazing things about the stackexchange model, how quickly community develops. Apr 8, 2011 at 19:19

    Hosting events on chat is a good idea. I've been a little sad about our empty chat for a while, but I haven't really come up with any good ideas to rectify the situation.
