With the move to mobile the online, connected all the time standby tools like IRC (see previous Freenode post) may not seem very modern but it’s having a resurgence in tech circles and is one of my most important tools when collaborating with others. The trouble is there is resistance to adopting it. It’s as close to an Internet command line as you can get, especially when augmented or enhanced when running a bot that has useful services.
It’s so important a tool I have started writing a web page on my website to help people get started. Your feedback here or via email would be most appreciated.
The BerkeleyLUG meets on the second and fourth Sunday of each month at Bobby G’s Pizzeria. Our May 12th meeting is in about an hour. I look forward to seeing people there. Happy Mother’s Day!
