Video Chat

From Wikipedia 10

As I mentioned in the Wikix-l and some others had mentioned on Ideas pages and somewhere else, a few of us address our hopes to have video chat.

I understand that, we still need some rather private conversion to confirm exactly when the parties on different cities to chat with each other, I do think to have a list of parties who wish to video chat with others, would be useful in someway.

and I have a little request for everyone to convert your party time to UTC also, for an easier match. and I have divided into two sections, as I believe 15th will be the peak hour of events. :P --Yuyu 15:09, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Note from Jimbo - I will try to call into every event listed here for the 15th of January if you like!--Jimbo Wales 17:26, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
That would be special :) Addihockey10 17:30, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
I can have a video chat with Jimbo Wales!? When and were?NexCarnifex 18:05, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
Could we know something about the technical requirements. How is this supposed to work? --Wuselig 18:29, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
What about using UStream and then the chat room in there? but only one person is on camera is an issue… Mebeam.com is still in operation. could use one of those types of sites. Alin0Steglinski 19:57, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
I do think it is now the parties to state their platform & connection available in the venue, and the parties to decide when to chat with each other "wikily". I am eager to have a centralized video chat system if technology allows. But may be difficult for such short time. --Yuyu 03:00, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
Than this page is redundant to the Online Event page and we should merge it to get a unified planing tool. It is no help, if some enter here and some enter there and just a few enter both. --Wuselig 08:36, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Important: This page is not redundant - if you want me (Jimbo!) to video skype to your event, this is the page to use. :) And you'll need to put your skype id below, or tell me or people on #wikipedia-ten what to do. (I'm popping in and out there, but if you tell people there, I'm sure they can pass it along to me.)--Jimbo Wales 11:50, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Hi! Here in Milan, we are waiting for your call Jimbo :) Frieda 23:03, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
Frieda, I am so sorry! After a few nights with not enough sleep, I collapsed. :( --Jimbo Wales 03:34, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
The listing got pulled off, but I readded it and am here in Ann Arbor representing the UMich Wikipedians! Xavdid 21:29, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
