if last night's is any indication, the spokes council meetings are very lively gatherings and it can be difficult to hear the person on stack with all the background chatter.

i would like to propose trying a "silent chat" option during the spokes council.  one where people can easily chat with others present at 52 walker, whether to express opinions about a proposal or add information that may not be covered in the time remaining.  this would be using the vibe smartphone app, where messages posted as"whispers" would only be visible at/around 52 walker.

i discussed it last night with marisa and another person from facilitation and they are interested in possibly trying it at tomorrow's spokes council.

is this something the internet working group would get behind testing at a spokes council?
