An idea I thought of to help build community here is to have a "virtual group meeting" via iChat or IRC. Could it be possible to schedule a time where folks could come and join a chat to discuss a particular topic or article, or just have fun? I read about the various uses of iChat, Rendezvous, and collaborative text editing and such during conferences such as O'Reilly Mac OS X Conference which sounds like great fun, Wouldn't it be great to bring some of that to the community scattered around the world for those of us that can't attend the conference?


Keep up the good work,
Chris Z.

    It would be fun. And it's an idea we've tossed around here a couple times. As I think about it some more, seems to me we'd have to set up "meetings" in the different time zones, from Europe to Asia. Do we have any volunteers for facilitators?

      Yeah, if you need someone over here in Europe, count me in.

          Any possibility of a forums? It's the ideal community-building tool....would have to see how good the signal to noise ratio would be.

          Something like InvisionBoard....

            Well, a Mac forum are definitely a possibility. We have the machinery already built, and I'm willing to moderate to make sure it stays useful for all.

            I've shied away previously because I felt there were so many others on the Web that it wouldn't be a big deal here. We have the TalkBacks. Is it time for a forum?

              A forum would be ideal.

              Subforums:

              Newbie
              Cocoa/Objective C
              CoreAudio
              CoreGraphics
              Networking
              Darwin/Unix on Mac
              Applescript
              JavaOnMac
              RealBasic

              For example I'm a longtime Mac owner (128k Mac) who noodled with everything from Think Pascal and HyperCard to making a living with Macromedia Director to now just using Mac OS X at home. I'd love to get into MIDI/Core Audio and Objective C but really need to have somewhere to go with like minded people and subject matter experts.

              And while I've got your attention- WE NEED AN APPLESCRIPT STUDIO BOOK. Thank you... sorry for raising my voice... I assume you're waiting on some upgrade from Apple.
