Thanks for a wonderful time, everyone!

Feel free to comment on the next event (Apr 15) at https://plus.google.com/events/c3igul0rj6cfc1qbcar91lrcj0s - would anyone like to share their workflows for LaTeX, Org, or other interesting things? =)

I haven't set up the one for February yet, but this is your chance to tell me what time you'd like it to be. =) Comment with some suggestions!

Super-weird  glitch, the first 40 minutes or so is me talking to myself while everyone else was having a perfectly wonderful chat in an alternate universe. The recording was unfortunately from my side of the universe. =| I'm editing it in Youtube to cut out the first 40 minutes or so. Sorry about that!

URL and instructions for joining will be posted a few minutes before the event. =) (With any luck, someday we'll sort out the technical issues!)

Google Plus seems to be confused. When I view this event on +Sacha Chua 's feed, it converts the time to 2 AM on Thursday, but when I view it separately, it converts the time to 1 AM. Very confusing. (btw, it's supposed to be 1 AM for where I actually am.)

Get to know other Emacs geeks! =) In this casual chat about Emacs, we'll ask Steve Purcell (sanityinc, MELPA, https://github.com/purcell/emacs.d)  about how he learned about Emacs, what he uses it for, and why he likes it.

You can ask questions through the Q&A feature during the video stream, or by posting comments on this event page. The video stream and the recording will both be available on the event page.

Google Events translates times into your local timezone. For reference, this chat will be at 10 AM Eastern Time (Toronto) / 3 PM GMT (London).
