IRC can be funny. It can be annoying. I can be babylonian. It can be all at the same time. I had this conversation today:

I wish I was going here, cause everybody else is. Webloggers, take note: there’s a weblog panel at the SXSW – which will discuss why and how this new genre is changing the way we express ourselves on the web.

We did a live chat at work today, after a TV show. Sod that Murphy bastard and his arsehole law. DNS shit prevented us from using the paid for chat software at dds.nl, so I struggled to find a decent alternative, found one at the quite wonderful cjb.net… only to find out minutes before going live that the laptop in the studio couldn’t reach that either… so we ended up shouting questions through telephones and running to and from with print outs.
