Weekly chat, thanks for coming out!

Pt 2137
A special thanks to everyone who stopped by our weekly “ask an engineer chat” – we’ll be back next week (Saturday, September 12th at 10pm ET). Congrats to “ongissim” who won the trivia contest “What was Adafruit’s first kit” – the answer was The MiniPOV 2. For 2 weeks in a row we’ve had perfect video and sound, next week we’re going to work on saving a chat log – we think the best way is to log via an IRC client since Ustream seems to support IRC (most folks use the Flash chat though). If anyone has any expertise or suggestions, post’em up in the comments!

  1. Hi, yesterday i used xchat, easy instructions on http://ustream-helpers.4t.com/workshops/chat/connectwithxchat.html
    Thank you for your help, looking forward to the next one, bye!

  2. @Anyone who used Xchat yesterday: If you can, log back into the #adafruit-industries6796 room on Ustream in Xchat and use the Window>Save Text function to save everything that you viewed, ever, in adafruit chat. Hopefully someone can recover past chats.

  3. I have not attended one of these sessions yet. but it got me thinking. how to create an environment where young women can interact with, get advice from, get mentoring from, or just ask questions of a women scientist (programmer, engineer, etc.) And this approach seems very useful, as it does not require traveling. The idea of getting more girls/women into FLOSS or similar is a tough problem. But the lack of ways or environments for these folks to interact with a knowledgeable technical person is one issue. this may help.
    a one to many environment where the lead is seen on the camera and can chat with the students and the students can chat amongst themselves. and the impression of seeing a capable women answer a question in real-time is something likely to imprint on the impressionable young minds to encourage them to pursue these fields.
