One of these projects that we could do is live chat for the Channel 9 site so we can all chat with each other realtime. Maybe something like MSN's ActiveX chat client, but a little more integrated with Channel9 using our accounts from here and our profiles and avatars, etc.

Perhaps it could also have an indicator in the Online Users section to show which online users are also chatting.

I don't know, just throwing some ideas out there.
