Hi, i've been running an IRC chat every week to answer questions from students and such looking to get into the industry. Guest speakers from the industry (other than myself) would be much appreciated! It's just one night on a web-based IRC channel and everyone would really enjoy it! If you're interested, please send me an email via the forums (click on my name) so i can let the students and others know more than a week in advance to come, thanks!
