who aren't afraid of text, which is sometimes overlooked. It can be a
time sink however.
A good thing about having an irc hangout place is that people can ask
questions and brain storm when they feel like it in real time.Then when
the time comes for a meeting people who have dropped in once or twice
know how to connect and set up a client etc...
I've found conversations in irc are much easier to follow than email
discussions which is sometimes like having a long distance conversation
over a bad line. irc logs can be archived and indexed as well.
