We have an IRC channel on Freenode. We use it to interact with viewers when we’re taping episodes of Open Crowd Source, which stream live, so the audience watching can participate.
Here’s how to get in on the fun:
- Fire up your IRC client of choice.
- Connect to the Freenode server.
Usually, you just type /server chat.freenode.net
- Type /join #backseatdesigners
If you don’t have an IRC client, you can use this webchat client to connect. Just type in your nickname in the “Nickname” field and backseatdesigners in the “Channels” field.
When we’re not taping, there’s usually no one there. Look for announcements of future Open Crowd Source episodes on this site.
