Subject: #WWW on IRC
What I thought would be really valuable is a WWW developers (possibly
and users) BBS, telnettable to. That way the conversation could be
subdivided into topics (``boards'' for Clients, Mosaic, Servers, CERN
Code, WAIS, Getting Started, SGML-flamage, &c.). The site to set this
up would need to be well connected, though (hint hint :-).
A problem I find with the mailing list is that *everything* is here,
which is not necessarily a good thing :). I delete more than I read,
and it takes a while for the mail to get through.
As an interim idea, why not use IRC to communicate informally? I'll
join #WWW on IRC whenever I'm on, and if there's sufficient interest,
I'll look into writing a 'bot to serve files, maybe even access the
web. Someone with a less crappy connection to the backbone might be
able to run the 'bot if it gets going.
Feedback? Abuse? See you on IRC?
