Just listened to and mIRCed the Thursday meeting held at Harvard this evening: Aaron was there physically as was Dave and Andrew while Robert and Steve and Peter the Ruk were on the chatty IRC listening in. Lots of interesting talk about where he thinks blogs are going; how you pay for copyright on the internet; how to make the topics written at places like this blog fly off the page via RSS, find others like themselves everywhere on the web and get delivered back to you arranged by topic. It was a bit overwelming from an input point of view as Ruk said. Interestingly, the technology used to run the communication was pretty basic, stuff that was all available in 1996 or 1997: real audio, IRC, webpages. Hopefully a transcript will pop up somewhere of the side chat and some pictures of and posts from the meatware world of the analogue. If done again, you can bet you will never see only 15 people in the IRC.
