"Ask Tucows" Chat Transcript

Comic illustration of a boy talking to a bull.Yesterday,

we held the first “Ask Tucows” chat on IRC. This is the first of four

online chat sessions scheduled this year in which people can chat

directly with various people from Tucows to ask questions, make

comments and suggestions and get to know us a little better. About a

dozen people from Tucows participated, as did somewhere between two to

three dozen people from “the community”: customers, investors and a

couple of curious onlookers.

The chat seems to have gone over

well. The conversation was quite lively and many opinions and ideas

were voiced. It also went on longer than expected: we had the channel

open in the morning for testing purposes, and some people joined in the

conversation quite early. Although it was scheduled to run from 1:00

p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Eastern (GMT-5), the actual chat effectively started

shortly after 11:30 a.m. and ran through to just after 3:00 p.m.. We

don’t mind this; we’d rather have the chat run overtime than close it

down early from lack of interest.

There are three more chats scheduled for this year:

  • Tuesday, May 2
  • Tuesday, August 1
  • Tuesday, November 7


tentatively scheduled to take place between 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Eastern (GMT-5), but given the way this first chat went, I’m going to

consider expanding the official hours and starting the chat a little

earlier to accommodate our European customers and investors.
