Summary

IRC & other ways of chatting in the open community

IRC is a long used chat mechanism used by lots of people in the open source community; I'll talk about what it is and how to use it; if you've got a machine with you I can help you get connected. I'll also be talking aobut some of the other chat protocols that are coming along, in particular I'll talk a bit about Matrix.org.
