Chatroom links:http://www.tchat.io/rooms/eweekchat and Tweetchat.com (Note: Tweetchat is back up and under new ownership.)
When: Wednesday, Aug. 14 at 11 a.m. Pacific Time/2 p.m. ET/7 p.m. GMT. Where: The chat can be followed on Twitter using the hashtag #eWeekChat. A link to the recap (so you can see a record of what everybody tweeted) will be posted on this blog the following Friday, Aug. 16. Why: The whole idea is to facilitate additional industry dialogue and provide a forum for questions, idea sharing and problem solving. We also want your input on what you'd like to discuss during future chats, so please leave a comment on this post or tweet @eweeknews with topic ideas. Participants will be able to ask questions of eWEEK staff members and special guests or simply add their thoughts to the conversation. The only restrictions are that we stay on topic and that you say what you need to say succinctly (140 characters). You may not have participated in a Tweetchat previously. They generally move pretty fast, but you can learn a lot. We'll also post a record of all the comments so that you can refer to it afterward. Here's the Storify page containing all of our previous eWEEKChat compilations. Please note that to maintain a semblance of order, please prefix your question or comment with the number of the question we are currently discussing. As an example, the moderator may post: "Q1: What would it take to change you from an iPhone to a Samsung S 4 user, or from an S 4 to an iPhone?" To which you might answer: "A1: Nothing could sway me; I have a BlackBerry Q10." Or you might not answer that way. The Tweetchat.com platform cannot be used; it was sold by Twitter in June and taken out of commission by the new owners, who say they plan to upgrade it and will take as much time as necessary to do it. This is why we're using the tchat.io site, which seems to work fine. A Tweetchat is a venue that is easy to use on any type of device, too. By the way, did you know that eWEEK is the only mainstream IT trade publication that has specific apps for Android and iOS devices? Hope to connect with you Aug. 14, and use your collaboration network to tell your friends. Let's have fun with this.
