Having a Tiny Chat

Last night I was on a conference call for the Greatest City of All Blog. But this wasn't just your average conference call.

Cheryl Harrison, Jason Blanton, me and Kelly Gingery
Instead we used Tinychat. Tinychat is a free audio video chat room. If you have a web cam and mic you're in! It's easy to set up too. Just create a chat room and invite people to join through a link.

Because of Tinychat all of us on the call could see and hear each other like we were in the room together . . . well, we did look a little like the Brady Bunch in our boxes . . . but it worked great. We did have a technical issue with echoing so we did use Skype to conference for our audio.

This new video conferencing would work great for anyone but especially for non-profits and small businesses who may have offices, clients or vendors in other cities. Think of how much money you could save in travel costs.

Hey there,

Love that you posted about our Greatest City Of All TinyChat conference call last night!
(Which was productive...but very fun as well, by the way.)

I too think this is such a great tool that would be so beneficial for all types of AND personal.

I look forward to more fun TinyChats with you....and hopefully others who discover it as well.
