Aaron and I were fooling around with TinyChat just now, and I accidentally invited everyone I know through Twitter and Facebook to join the chat. A lucky few, including Minnesota immigration lawyer and blogger Tamara Caban-Ramirez, Professor Jonathan Ezor of Touro Law, and Venkat Balasubramani jumped on and got to see Aaron and I panicking. This is what we look like during our Friday meetings.

We did decide that TinyChat is pretty awesome, though. TinyChat does disposable chat rooms. Just type “tinychat.com/whateveryouwant” into your browser and send the address to the people you want to chat with. You can do audio, video, or just text.

The Aaron and Sam Show is probably not the best programming you can find online, but TinyChat is a pretty cool tool.


  1. I know I should embrace new technology happily, and I’ve just started blogging and that’s been fun.

    I was dragging my feet with Twitter, until a friend sent me your website, so I could learn how to use the mysterious new technology.

    But TinyChat? Where will it all end?

    Hmmmm? Wonder if we could weave this into Webcasting….?

  3. Sam Glover Sam Glover says:

    TinyChat is pretty awesome. I can think of all kinds of uses for it.

  4. It looks neat, but I was concerned with the warning that, if you enable the web-cam, you might be recorded. What was that about? Are they referring to themselves or people you videochat? Rather disturbing.

  5. Sam Glover Sam Glover says:

    Users can record, if they have a pro account. Of course, anyone can easily record anything on their screen, anytime. TinyChat just makes it a bit easier.
