How about we use the IM as a function for lining up who talks next?

Like let's say you have something to include, you can type "I want to talk." And when other guy finishes his talking, you can go?

That way it isn't a surprise, and it gets people involved in dictating the flow.

I, of course, can try to moderate it.

That can't be right.

We can't do a Skypecast with order! You'll disturb the natural order you fools!
...Then again, fucking with the natural order of is kinda the point of sciencing. So... This weekend, anything at all?

RE: TTA Skypecast
Good evening ladies and gentlemen, and Hughsie too. As you may have noticed the Skypecast has been...missing recently. That is soon to change. In order to hopefully get more out of the Skypecasts Steven and I are going to try something a little more organizes, and intimate. The format of the recording will change as well. For starters, the host will have a topic prepared for discussion, as well as a few questions prepared to stimulate interesting conversation. The guests will be selected ahead of time (hopefully). There will be no more than three guests per recording session. Hopefully this will allow everyone to sufficiently speak their mind with minimal confusion. Additionally the show will be split into to parts. Steven will act as host and editor of one call with selected guests, and I will host another part several days later with new guests on the same topic. For the moment this is only a trial run. If it works well we shall continue to work this way. Both sections of the show will edited and put together as a single show.

The topic of the next show will The Concept of God. The date and time for the first recording has not yet been set, however it will most likely be on the weekend. The second recording will likely be during the evening (for US timezones) if enough interest is shown. Otherwise the second may be on the following weekend.

If you are interested in appearing, please indicate that by posting in the thread. Thanks!

But I think Rev should host it instead of Attie.

RE: TTA Skypecast
The topic sucks.
How about something cool like the best way to make a grilled cheese?
You're gonna put people to sleep if you're just talking about God all the time. I mean we're all atheists, it's not exactly going to be the most bias-free debate now is it? You need topics that a) aren't boring as fuck, ie: god and b) people have differing opinions on ie: the best way to make a grilled cheese.

RE: TTA Skypecast
Well Hughsie and I are going to host our own Skype cast, which will include bitches, chicken, dietary supplements, aids and Skyrim. If you'd like to join, we're literally on Skype 24/7 because we're better than Stevie.
