I'm looking into getting set up for doing some speed scraps and other fun group chat type things. I'm looking into group chat programs, if anyone has any suggestions.
Right now I'm checking out Google Hangouts. I have no experience with it at all, so if you do let me know how you think it would work. It seems like the main drawback is that you have to have a Google account to use it. Although, you'll probably have to have some sort of account some where regardless of what we pick. It's nice not to chat with faceless people I think, and using the Google Hangout makes it easy to see who you're talking to, assuming people upload a photo...
So if you have thoughts on programs, or fun things we can once we figure that part out, I'm all ears!
Also, if you want to hangout with me right now on Google Hangouts, as I'm trying to figure out how it works, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
