Here's an idea:  How about scheduling bull sessions..  like an hour every couple of weeks... and host an IRC chat (or chat using some java app).  There could be a topic du jour, or special guest, or whatever.

It's something we used to do like a million years ago when I was a sysop on CompuServe, and was pretty popular.

 

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

We had an IRC channel running for quite some time.  I think Bibite used to moderate it.  I would love to try and set something like that up and we could get special guests once in a while...
