So the great meeting of the minds today at Journal News/LoHud.com headquarters has led us to the decision to launch our first live chat tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. Tell your dog! Tell your dentist! Tell your dog’s dentist!
Actually, bear in mind that tomorrow’s chat will be something of a dry run, so while I don’t anticipate any snafus, I won’t rule them out completely, either.
Should everything pan out relatively OK, you can expect this to be a regular feature of the blog moving forward in 2008-09, with an assortment of different features and promotions possibly introduced along the way. I will say for the record right now, however, that it will not involve me sitting in any sort of carnival dunk tank.
I should also note that you may notice our live chat format will look eerily similar “to Zipay’s”:http://weblogs.newsday.com/sports/hockey/rangers/blog/2008/07/live_chat_with_steve_zipay_1.html. I would say I’m copying him, but it’s actually just a case of us using the same software. And besides, if I really wanted to copy Zipay, I’d shave my head and start quoting obscure folk lyrics.
