Chat on IRC

A number of us are idling in #communitydata on OFTC (irc.oftc.net). IRC is basically a chat system that is similar to Slack in many ways (it was actually the inspiration for Slack!).

To use IRC, you'll need a client. A really good one for folks new to IRC is IRCCloud. With IRCCloud there is a web interface as well as good Apps for iOS and Android.

One limitation of IRCCloud is that, after a 1-week trial period, the system will disconnect folks every two hours. There are a couple options for this. The easiest one is subscribing to IRC cloud which costs $5/month or $50 a year. Mako or Aaron will foot the bill. The other is to connect through an IRC "bouncer." Talk to Mako about this if you're interested in this approach. He can run one for you.

Another option for those wanting a persistent connection without setting up a bouncer (such as ZNC) is to connect via the Matrix protocol. While there are numerous clients, Salt recommends Riot which is freely supported on every platform. Join the room `#_oftc_#communitydata:matrix.org` to bridge into IRC.

Diversions

The light in the lab at UW is funny. We have three fluorescent lights. On flipping the light switch, only two turn on. The third turns on eventually. We are studying this arcane phenomenon over at CommunityData:Light events
