    Have you all considered making an nlab chatroom? It seems that there’s enough frequent interaction on the forum that such a thing would be decently populated. I know I’d certainly spend some time in there! I have no idea what the technical challenges associated to this might be, so perhaps it’s beyond the scope of the people running the nlab and nforum, but it seems a natural next step.

    Anyway… just an idea. If there was a chat room I would have just mentioned this in there. Or I guess I wouldn’t have. Uhoh, I’ve confused myself again.

    I would actually be mildly against such a thing. One of the nice things about a forum is that all the discussion is recorded in a way that’s easy to find again and link to, and also threaded so that many different discussions can happen at the same time without getting mixed up. In a chat room when multiple discussions happen at once, they all get mixed together and confused, and even if you have a log of the chat it’s hard to go back and read what was discussed.

    (Also, I do not need another way to spend time on the Internet. (-: )

    Previous suggestion of this was back in 2009. I think Mike made exactly the same comment back then!

    heh. At least I’m consistent.
