As always, this week's All Programmable Planet (APP) live online chat -- which will be held on Thursday, February 21 -- promises to be a rip-roaring, fun-filled, roller-coaster thrill ride of thrust-and-parry ideas. (Only thrill seekers need apply.)
I'd like to tell you how much fun we all had in our last chat on Thursday, February 14. As you are no doubt aware, however, the APP site was brought down by a nefarious DDOS (distributed denial of service) cyberattack. Suffice it to say that I was not wearing my happy face.
But let's turn that frown upside down into a smile, because all of that is behind us now. In the case of this week's chat, the great thing about APP is that everyone has so much input and such interesting ideas that someone will set a conversational ball rolling, and everyone else will race around adding different thoughts and perspectives. I know that I, for one, want to... but no! You'll just have to wait and see!

The chat -- which is similar to using an IM (instant messaging) system, but which actually employs your web browser -- will commence at 12:00 p.m. my time (Central USA Time), which is 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time, 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and 6:00 p.m. UTC/GMT (you'll have to work out your local time from these clues -- or you can use this handy-dandy Time Zone Converter).
All you have to do is to click here at the appropriate time to join the fun and make your opinions known. (If you aren't already a member of All Programmable Planet, now would be a perfect time to register.)
C U there! B there, or B square!
