I thought I would reflect upon the conference I attended last night. I suppose I am a tad bit jaded by voice chats these days. It turns out that the conference was a typing only event. I thought the author was fine, but the host was using evaluation software, and everyone had to keep putting in text to keep in the room. I found that distracting as was the use of a wide variety of fonts and colors. I have to say that all of that made it very distracting for some one with ADD. I will say that the author they interviewed was interesting, but after an hour or so of the chat room. They are supposed to be posing the chat logs, so maybe I will scan that later and be able to weed out the extraneous parts.
Now I have a goal, find some online chat software that focuses on voice, and that isn’t too annoying to use. If you have some suggestions, please post them in the comments.
