TinyChat is a free service that allows you to create a free chat room that is accessible by anyone with a browser. Simply create a chatroom from the homepage then send the link it gives to you to anyone you want to chat with. After you leave the chat room, all the chat data disappears.
It’s the easiest way to have a group chat with multiple people; you needn’t worry about who has what messenger or what everyone’s screen name is. Just send them a link! It’s also a great way to talk with people who are not the most computer literate – they don’t need to install any programs to talk with someone!

Now and again we come out of our cave and discover something we can’t believe hasn’t come to our attention before now. Fast Company is a print magazine that has an accompanying website with blogs on Technology, Design and Ethonomics which are frantically pushing information to anyone who’s smart enough to listen. Take a look at a post on top innovative companies, if you’re the doubting type:

“So-called ‘global warming’ is just a secret ploy by wacko tree-huggers to make America energy independent, clean our air and water, improve the fuel efficiency of our vehicles, kick-start 21st-century industries, and make our cities safer and more livable. Don’t let them get away with it!” So says Chip Giller, the founder of Grist.org, a website where environmentally-minded people gather.

Grist is based in the Emerald City of Seattle, in the Evergreen State of Washington,  with contributors scattered the world ’round. They are a nonprofit organization funded by foundation grants, reader contributions, and just a touch of advertising. Their website and email services are free.
