Tinychat

Tinychat Tinychat does for chatrooms what tinyurl does for urls - gives you a free, instant, disposable chatroom, and plays nicely with Twitter. It's entirely public, but provides a valuable means to take noisy discussions out of your public twitterstream while keeping them in the public domain and facilitating multiple partcipants.

So why do I care? As we move towards a model of increasing peer-support for students, this is a very valuable tool. By building on the functionality of Twitter, we can offer lightweight realtime support to students as needed. Boys and girls, you're looking at the future.
