RE: live chat with other nanog'ers
Completely agree with that.. With my network, anyone can register their user name, and create a registered channel, how many they create is up to them to a maximum of 10, The channel owner is the person who registers the channel, and the owner can set additional staff as they wish.. In addition, channels can be set as private, secret, as well as requiring a 'key' to be accessed, network staff do not and will not interfere with any channel running, except to prevent illegal activity when reported to us. As a small network, we do not attract 'script kiddies' and we run a small friendly group of general chatters, as well as some staff with greater technical knowledge. In general, at least one network administrator is around to assist with enquiries, as well as global operators, but no member of staff will enter a channel unless invited to do so, or a list member of nanog.. and then will only enter as a normal chatter with no staff override privileges. That to me seems the best way for any live chat channel to run, and with the least headaches for all concerned..

One thing we found was that having a normal, anyone can join, type of channel works well. But then having other private, permission-only, channels, with vetting could be a good idea too. Perhaps that can apply here. It's a much small community, but the data is prolly as sensitive as that which would be exchanged by nanog folks.
