Lightbulb Virtual online party - June 28

I think we're going to shoot for Sunday, June 28 for our online virtual party. Not sure how this will take place, but we will probably use a combination of chat rooms, video rooms, etc. for it.

If anyone's been to one before, or done anything similar, let us know how it went, what technology they used, etc. Open to ideas!

Skype apparently can do 10 -25 group video/talk for free online. It can be used with or without a camera, members would have to add each other to their 'contacts.'

Cool, so that's good to know. We can definitely setup a Skype call for the event!

Just reading through the Skype features and it says 5 on a video call or up to 25 on a call (with no video) for free. Skype Features | Learn more about Skype

How about a forum area / threads to party on the day as well for those who don't use chat? (In this forum maybe) with special party games, comets (and prizes?) on the day

I am wondering about a set of rooms... where we can move from room to room on video chat as a seat becomes open? A home page like our lobby without video to hold more peeps? hummmmm

I like this idea It would be good for people like me who aren't familiar with technology, except for PC

Google Hangouts could be used. No limit on number of people (as far as I know), and all you need to do is post the link to the Hangout, and anyone with the link can join - you just need a Gmail account.
