Consider this thread our Trail Mix Debate Prep. I am in tech mode right now, but of course please continue the political dialogue within.
After a few failed efforts to build a live chat room for our event parties, we finally have one that seems promising. Join us Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 8:45pm EST, for the next Presidential Debate.
I found some fantastic folks in India who are helping me build a custom chat room. We worked all weekend on this. Give it a go by clicking “Chat” in the menu bar below logo at the top of this page, or go directly to http://craigcrawford.com/chat/
About the Popup Box: In the bottom right corner you will find something new, a popup Chat box. Click it and you will see a list of all users, including unregistered guests, currently on the site. Click it again to minimize. If this box bugs you, open it and click the green button next to the mute button (for turning off sound notifications), then click the gray offline button that appears in top right corner to close the popup. You will then see only a green button in the corner that can be clicked anytime to re-open and follow what’s happening in the chat room. But, as always, to see full-screen chat go to the “Chat” button at the top of the main page under the logo.
For those who prefer our traditional comment threads, do not fear. They will always be here for registered users and, unlike chat room messages, part of our permanent archive. Unregistered users can participate in the chat room.
