Just starting. Qiqochat is something I have long suggested to the IGF-USA
and other conveners as some thing that might be used to get around travel
limitations. Essentially there is a lobby, which is a webpage + zoom call,
and a bunch of "tables" which are also zoom calls. Each table has an
associated etherpad.  If you are in the lobby you can see who is at each
table, and jump from one to another. I'm going to cherry pick a few
sessions for the livestream. Hopefully a few more will be recorded and I'll
restream them later. Actual participation does cost $3, since it uses the
zoom api, which is not free.
