Real-time talking

Internet Relay Chat brings amateur astronomers from around the globe together to talk turkey about their passion.
A popular way for like-minded amateur astronomers to meet in cyberspace started in 1988, when Jarkko Oikarinen of Finland created Internet Relay Chat (IRC). IRC creates "chat channels" that work through computer-network servers. When you type a line, it goes to the server you are using. That server links to other servers, and your line is displayed to everyone on the channel. Since its start, IRC has become a popular way for people from more than 65 countries to meet.
