I love IRC. It’s simple, easy, and a great way to connect with people all around the world. I am a particular fan of #5by5, #wikipedia-en-help, #wolfire, and #linkinus. Between podcast chatrooms and Wiki help groups, IRC has a lot to offer.

I know that IRC has been used to run games since the protocol was first available, but I just don’t know where to find (this particular set of) nerds. What channels do you all lurk on? Where are the late-night conversations about the latest Pathfinder game? Enlighten me.
