So yeah I'd say IRC is alive and well. Not AS alive and well as it once was. But seriously, who under 20 even KNOWS what IRC is in today's social media world?

Ironically, I'd wager IRC does a far better job of "social networking" than the likes of Twitter and Facebook because it enables a real-time large communications network that is also redundant in its design, unlike Twitter/FB which aren't real-time without constant refreshing nor redundant (single point of failure in their websites). Also a ton more privacy than Twitter/FB too.

Alas, not many <20s who aren't already "in-the-know" one way or another know of or use IRC. Quite a shame since IRC is so effective in what it does.

@KingArthur Perhaps Skype replaced it.
So how is IRC doing now? Is it worth dropping by?
I lurk there once a week but it's pretty dead whenever I'm on. I only have so many windows and picking between slack, discord and irc, irc often comes last.

It's fine, but discord might be better, cause voicechat. Not too many people on IRC though, but you're free to check it out. slacks also an option, but yeah...
