SCS2006 (agenda and participants) is being streamed in near realtime to the Web, today and tomorrow, Monday, May 8-9.
As you watch, you can chat with the participants, including me at irc.freenode.net/scs2006: a fascinating exercise. To join the public chat, or "backchannel" as Liz prefers to call it, you'll need an IRC client. I just installed mIRC. Any .net IRC clients out there?
