Live Chat On Monday

I'm always up for trying out new things here at Icethetics. One thing I've been wanting to try for a while is some sort of live interactive event. Basically, a way for you guys to talk directly with me. You read and look at what I post every day and sometimes you send in emails but we never really just chat.

That being said, I have to tip my hat to the guys at Hockeybums for turning me on to an awesome site that provides free live blogging. I figured this would be the perfect way for me to have some interaction with you guys — an Icethetics Live Chat.

I don't really have any plans for it at the moment. I'll probably just take your questions and comments for about an hour. As for the immediate future of this whole Live Chat thing, I'd like to cover the Hurricanes' third jersey unveiling on Wednesday. I, of course, won't be there, but if anyone here will and has a laptop, they might be able to participate and let us know what's going on. At the very least, I can provide pictures and information as I get it.

Beyond that, I really don't know. We'll see how things go to start with. But I can tell you they offer live polls. And since polls are such a major staple of Icethetics, I figure we'd all appreciate that.

I've set up our first Live Chat to take place tomorrow morning at 11 AM eastern time. I know it's short notice and it's a Monday morning, but I'm doing it this way to avoid having too many people there. I'm not really sure how any of this works and if it's a colossal failure, well, let's not do it in front of everyone, right?

If you can participate, please do! You can fill in your email address in the box on the right to be reminded. I plan to set up the window for the Live Chat here at Icethetics about 10 minutes before we start.

I won't be here in 30 minutes for the chat, but a quick suggestion. You should narrow the names for teams in the from the ground up poll to 5-10. I know this might make people mad, but it would allow for the team name with 25+ percent to win the vote, not the team with 6%
Another possibility is to have people choose there top 5 in a short (2 day poll) and then the top 5 out of those go on to be voted on in the finals.
