I know that we have http://socialhub.network/ for this as well and I encourage the devs to use these places in conjunction to this one for conversations for historical and open discussion reasons.
@jalcine Agreed about email, but IRC's lack of built-in support for accessing messages missed when offline makes it suck unless everyone is in the same TZ, has reliable power, network, etc.

As someone living in +11:00, unfortunately I'm sleeping when most of the rest of the world is awake. Dunno what I can do about that, def's don't want to move to America. ;)
Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
