However, I think it'd be nice to have a chat for us Thingamabrarians. There are very few book chats out there and we could be starting something interesting. :P

IRC can be accessed by either downloading a client (such as mIRC) or by java applets. Perhaps, if you guys did this, you could make an applet and link it on the main site.
If you guys did create your own server, then each little group could have their own channel.
I dunno.. I think more instant chat would be kinda nifty for this growing group of bookworms. :D
Let me know what you think...
BookieEdit: Now if only I could figure out the links here. XD
Anxiously awaiting a chat now. ;) Thanks, Tim!
Soon, I'm going to be spending more time on this site than actually reading. Hey, wait... I think I already do.
Just as I made talk to *remove* structure (ie., allow books to escape their threads), I'd want chat to add it, by adding this "conversation pieces" with the most shared books. I suspect that, like most LT features, only a subset would use it. That's good, in my opinion.
I hacked up something a while back, but it had browser issues. It's not at the top of my stack right now—certainly below author and search improvements.
