Inspiration

Have you ever had questions or wanted to say something during a lecture but didn't want to raise your hand? Did you fear how people would think of your question/comment?

What it does

Chit Chat is a real time anonymous solution. Users can create tags for anything from classes to events. The tags you and others create will only show up if you're within a 1 mile radius from the point of creation.

Since everyone is anonymous, you can ask the questions you have without fear.
