Hi Simon, Yeliz, Peter, and all,

I recall having discussed providing an IRC channel for the symposium 
attendees but did we agree on making this public to everyone too?

Pro: it allows anyone interested to actively participate, even when they 
don't have phone access (the live captions will be public);

Con: it can be difficult to manage, especially if we have "chatty" 
people in the chat room (occasionally also offensive people btw).

Suggestion: we could try it out this time but not announce it too 
broadly (only have the information on the symposium page for these 
people who actually visit it during the symposium), but this would still 
require some attention of the symposium chairs to track the questions 
and comments raised during the discussion.

What do people think, especially the symposium chairs?
