>It’s quite amazing how much traction we get out of irc at work. It’s pretty much a rule to keep the conversation inside irc. This makes a whole lot of sense, as we have all kinds of documentation in the chat logs. I am very accustomed to chatting for work conversation, debugging and whatnot. I love the decentralized model. This is above and beyond what I have ever experienced. So cool.
Between irc, blogs and bugzilla, we are all having a lot of online conversations. Email is important, but secondary. I likes. 99% of the communication is captured in a pretty meaningful way, unlike typical corporate massive reliance on email, which is so full of spam and nonsense.
