We have an active community on emails but not all of you know each other. I made this Anonymous Shoutbox so people can chat and meet without logging on, without handles.
No sign up, no hassle.
You can make a handle if you like, or just chat anonymously. I'll copy paste this widget into more of my posts.
This blog has been very successful so far. The only downside is the relative lack of comments.
Email lists with many people are a time sink, so I hope more of you meet each other publicly.
IRC channel coming in future.
