Chat Rooms are channels for ongoing team discussions.You can make a chat room to discuss a topic, share files, or get notified about activity in external services like Twitter, Zendesk, and JIRA.Just look at the earliest, successful forerunner to online chat — a program that academics invented, almost by accident, long before the birth of the World Wide Web.Talkomatic, the program’s appropriately retro name, was born out of PLATO, a computer-based education program at the University of Illinois, in 1973.When we started out we simply displayed a list of popular chat rooms with no registration requirement. As our traffic grew, we added chat rooms of our own. However, in addition to our British chatters we have a large number of visitors from the United States, Ireland, Australia and Canada. We understand that without visitors like you, our rooms would be empty.At first, we had enough space for a couple of dozen users. You should not have any trouble getting into a free chat room since our main forums do not require any downloads.
