Update 4: Thanks to all who attended. Good discussion.

Update 3: Meeting is at irc.freenode.net. Join channel youonlylivetwice. I'm there now. Will try to start by 7pm, but if we get enough we might start early.

Update 2: Meeting is tonight (Aug 18). See my comment below if you plan to attend.

Update 1: I'm in Pacific time zone (UTC - 7 hours).


In the next few days, I have to make a decision that will affect the rest of my life. I want to find Third Alternatives and go over my thinking on solutions already proposed.

I need your help.

I would post here if I could, but it’s just too private, and I don’t have the consent of everyone involved. So I would like to convene a working group.

I propose we meet either tonight or tomorrow. (Right now, I'm thinking IRC, but I am open to suggestions on that.) I will try to keep things short. I wish there was more time, but time is precisely what I don’t have.

If you can help, please reply below in the comments or message me privately. I would like at least one participant to be an individual with a diagnosis of Asperger’s or autism.

You might want to mention your timezone. I'd be available in ~7 hours, which is "tonight" my time, as long as the medium is text-only. Self-diagnosed Aspie, but the research says that's about as accurate as a formal diagnosis these days :)

Well huzzah, we're in the same time zone. Interested in grabbing me on IRC ~6 PM? If so, private message me the IRC info or what-have and I'll be there :)


I will be free around 6pm your time. No autism or Asperger's.

Edit: whoops, missed the day. Well, I hope that worked out for you.

tonight or tomorrow

He ended up going with tomorrow, which would be today, so you haven't missed him/us as far as I know :)


I haven't heard anything.

I haven't found a place to do this. See my comment below.

I'll help if I can.

I want to try for 7pm pacific daylight time (about 70 minutes from the time I post this message). Please reply to this comment if you can attend. I will send you the location by private message.

TinyChat is a fairly good chat webapp with video,voice and text chat.

TinyChat is decent, but I've been having a lot of issues with it. If you all have a Google+ account, hangouts would be better.
