    Has any thought been put into creating a PF channel on some network, perhaps even your own?

    IRC chats are evil. OPs are corrupt with the little power they have, there is always a troll, someone who TYPS LIK THIS!!!

    How about just a chat, like DigiChat based on the website?

    I don't see how the risk is any more great than a forum and we handle things pretty well :wink:

    A chat is a chat is a chat. What difference do the protocol or platform make?

    An attempt was made earlier to put PF on IRC. It was hosted on dduardo's temporary server and was moved to irc.tehnicom.net. I think it fizzled out because only a few people were on at a time, and several of the discussions were mainly about women :smile:

    The #physics channel on freenode is a good place to hang, FWIW
