#gistribe An online global network of GIS geeks, ninjas, students, & pros

What we do: Chat online every week about the latest geo developments, news, software, & more
 When: Every Wednesday at 12 pm PST, 1 pm MST, 2 pm CST, 3 pm EST, -800 GMT
Where: On Twitter, using the hashtag #gistribe 
Who: geo tweeps from around the globe

The #gistribe chat is a weekly hour long chat on Twitter where anyone can follow, join in, and contribute to their heart's desire. It was formed as a platform for people interested in GIS (geographic information systems, geospatial tech, applications, or otherwise "geo") to join a supportive global online community to meet other like-minded people, learn from one another, discuss interesting topics, troubleshoot, & inspire. We talk software, tools, code, problems, solutions, tips, tricks, books, maps, & more. The sky is not the limit, because, well, that's just too limiting...

If you need more direction on how to join a Chat on Twitter don't fret, there are plenty of resources to get you started. A hashtag is a predetermined alphanumeric sequence that begins with a pound sign, in this case "#gistribe" (minus the quotation marks). We keep track of the conversation by adding the characters "#gistribe" to each tweet designated for the chat. To follow the conversation, you can  search the hashtag on Twitter.

If you prefer using a different platform like Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, or Tweetchat, you can create a column in your feed and search the hashtag so you can follow along easily. Pick a platform and get to the chat Wednesdays at 12 PM Pacific Time.
