In recent days, we've had a bunch of new (and not-so-new) users making great contributions to the site, and there has been a distinct uptick in meta activity. So I thought it would be a neat idea to capitalize on this by having a brief chat session where we - or at least, whoever's available - can all get together and share the latest news in the physics world and also hear updates about what is going on with the Stack Exchange network. Additionally, this will be a great chance for any new users to ask any questions about how the site works or anything you may want to know from the moderators.
With that in mind, I went ahead and scheduled an event for this Thursday, March 8, at 22:00 UTC (5 PM EST). This is listed on the chat room schedule, where you may register for the event - but that's totally optional, it's fine if you just pop into the chat room without registering in advance! I realize that time may not work for everyone, but I thought it'd be best to just get something scheduled. If this is a success, we could make it a repeating event, perhaps monthly, and in that case we'd vary the times so that different people can show up. Of course you can always post in the chat room at any time, and usually someone will get back to you after a few hours.
Anyway, since I don't have much of a plan for this first chat session, and I should probably make this a question, what do you want to talk about? If you have anything that you would like brought up during the chat session, feel free to post it as an answer or comment here.
Note: You need to have 20 reputation on any one site in the SE network to join the chat.
