IRC – not just for idle chat. It’s great for meetings too

Jules, our esteemed treasurer, is currently several thousand miles away from Bristol. Nevertheless, he was able to participate in our last monthly meeting fully due to the wonders of IRC.

When he’s been away before, Jules has always emailed his report. However, this time all contact was via IRC and Mr Secretary is delighted: instead of having to decipher his usual scruffy notes to write the minutes, Jules’ contributions can be copied and pasted from a transcript of the output from his Xchat IRC client. 🙂
