To all Connected Scouters:
JOTI - Jamboree on the Internet will take place Friday, October 15,
through Sunday, October 17 1999.
JOTI is a global event where Scouters and Guiders communicate from all
over the world on the internet.
The largest group of chatters will be on ScoutLink, and I invite you all
to chat there.
During the three day period, last year we had 125,000 unique
connections, with 345, 000 total connections. Please pass this message
on to Scouters in your units. If you are going to have a big JOTI event
with a large computer lab, please let us know, so we may make
accommodations. To chat, an IRC client is needed, look at the sites
below on how to download and set up an IRC client. I encourage you to
connect to ScoutLink prior to JOTI, to get a feel for what it is like,
and get familiar with how it works.
ScoutLink is the largest chat network dedicated only to Scouting. It
is set up and run by knowledgeable volunteer Scouters. For more
