| ZopersORG (www.zopers.org) already has the full log of the great chat!!!
| The site itself is portuguese but if you click on the top link you can read
| the log in english!!

Just some hints on how to run these types of online chats (having run
a few in my time).

You setup two channels say

#ZopeTalk and #ZopeTalkPrivate

The public join #ZopeTalk
The 'guests' join #ZopeTalkPrivate (lock it up so noone can get in).
Your MC(s) join both channels.

When you want questions you unmoderate #ZopeTalk for a few seconds and
let people type their questions to the channel (that way everyone sees
the questions and don't ask the same twice).

Paste the questions into #ZopeTalkPrivate
Guests respond in #ZopeTalkPrivate
Paste the responses back into #ZopeTalk

This way you avoid the private messages that go on that are disruptive,
and one person isn't getting messaged all the time with questions.

If you want to throw the floor open, then the guests join the Public Channel.

We've done this with very very large chats for bands like Savage Garden
Henry Rollins, and SilverChair with thousands of people in the public
channel (chats were advertised on Channel V - Australian MTV type cable
