https://whereby.com is a browser only video chat solution which works pretty well in my experience.

I think if everyone is interested in doing this maybe pick a small group on the same time frame that can easily be able to work in the time.I do agree with Uncle Al this forum is made to connect everyone together.Theres always an option if some have Facebook you can always video chat with them that way on Messenger. You don't have to download anything as far as I know if you use laptop.Another option do old school pickup the phone and call each other.If you live in another country am sure you can workout a cheaper alternative. That's my 0.02 cents worth.

I think someone just needs to throw the link out here at this point... choose a time and date and see what happens...

I'd do it myself but I have no experience whatsoever setting up Zoom meetings.

I should be available from Sunday onward through the end of the week after 8PM

I agree with Moon. It is just one session now; can be a dozens scheduled or at random if it connects folks in pleasant and useful ways at whatever time and place ---so let's give it a shot and see what happens. I've hosted all of one zoom meeting but "attended" a number of them -- so I'm not a good candidate to start this thing, but will tune in if the day and hour are free, this time, or next, or....

Go for it.

You know, a thought just occurred to me, and I know this is outside of the scope of what this website (skirt cafe) can probably muster, but you'd think there would be an application or service out there somewhere for this...

A room that's always "switched on", where people can just log in, see who's there, and start talking. Kind of like the old chat rooms of the 90's, only with audio and video (like a Zoom/Teams) meeting. For example, if such a room existed, I could be logged in right now as I'm not really doing anything else but just sitting here typing this.

Does anyone know of such a service out there?

I suspect it's obsolete by now, but IRC (Internet Relay Chat) comes to mind...

I think Discord has something like this, but It may not be “always on”.

Yeah it could be like the video version of skirtcafe...

And to think, you could fix yourself a little sandwich and have a beverage to go with it and it would actually be like a virtual "cafe".

Heh.. cool. 8)

So who's gonna do it?

Not me... seriously, I have the kiss of death when it comes to organizing gatherings.

You've heard of "of you build it, they will come"...

Well with me it's more like "if you build it, they will run" [away]... :wink:
