Talkcast tonight, 7pm PT / 10 pm ET: Black Friday look-ahead
If it seems to you that the holiday season is rushing toward us this year, there's a reason: this is the earliest that US Thanksgiving can be scheduled (the fourth Thursday in November; this November started on a Thursday, so Thanksgiving is the 22nd). An early holiday means an early unofficial kickoff to the shopping season; with Black Friday only a few days away, we'll review deals and gift ideas tonight.
We'd love for you to bring your shopping strategies and gift notions to add to the fun! To participate, you can use the browser-only Talkshoe client, the embedded Facebook app, or download the classic TalkShoe Pro Java client; however, for +5 Interactivity, you should call in.
For the web UI, just click the Talkshoe Web button on our profile page at 4 HI/7 PDT/10 pm EDT Sunday. To call in on regular phone or VoIP lines (viva free weekend minutes!): dial (724) 444-7444 and enter our talkcast ID, 45077 -- during the call, you can request to talk by keying in *8.
