As the first-day meta enthusiasm has cooled down a bit now, why don't we make a meta feeds bot for our chatroom, to post the latest meta questions like on all other SE sites? We can even name it Bookworm.
Like you state this a pretty common function across the SE network. It is useful and helpful for the same reason a ticker for regular site questions are. We want users to participate on both levels of the site and chat is a good place to do that.
