Was thinking, a lot of people on my friends list use AIM and swap info from one IM to the other. Why don't we just have a set AIM room we can all go to when we feel like it? Not that IMs aren't fun and all if you just want to talk to one person, but it seems a chat is more logical if you want to talk to several people and don't mind the possibility of people wandering in.
Everyone would be free to invite friends from their friends lists even if we don't all know each other. It's a good way to make new friends after all.
