== How We Use IRC ==
 
If you have questions about anything Diaspora-related, the best way to get an answer quickly is to visit us in IRC. An IRC "channel" is roughly equivalent to a chatroom, or a text-based group chat in Skype, or a Campfire room.
 
  
It's fairly low-tech as group communication goes, but since we have contributors all over the world in different time zones and with different levels of internet access, it works well for us.

== Channels ==
 
We have several IRC channels. Click the link to join the channel in a browser window. You can also download and use an IRC client such as [http://colloquy.info/ Colloquy] for OS X, [http://www.mirc.com/ mIRC] for Windows, [http://xchat.org/ XChat] or [http://konversation.kde.org/ Konversation] for Linux distros.
