Ok then...   I will just decide. :)

WHO:  The entire weblogging community.  Anyone who has a weblog or online
journal.  The more people that show up, the more fun it will be.

WHAT:  BlogIRC! The very first IRC chat with all of the webloggers! Get a
chance to talk to everyone in real-time rather than by email.  Get to know
each other and share some info.  As Mike said, "We could pass the same set
of stale URLs around, only much faster."  

WHERE:  #BlogIRC on EFNet

WHEN:  Wed., January 12, 2000.  Starting at 8:30 PM Eastern Time. 

HOW:  Grab an IRC client and connect to any EFNet server.  Try to set your
nick to something related to your weblog so we know who everyone is (not
required, but recommended).  Then just join the #BlogIRC channel and begin
chatting.

We will need to spread the word quickly, so post the info on your weblogs.
Email people.  Send smoke signals.  etc. etc. etc.  Perhaps we could get it
posted on Linkwatcher and Weblog Monitor.  That would catch just about
everyone.

PS. Sorry for the short notice, but I just thought of it today, and I am
too impatient to wait until next week.
