while we are talking about adding integrations to slack can one of the mods take care of setting up this: https://ekmartin.com/2015/slack-irc/ (Bridging Slack & IRC). @gjnoonan @tcrawley

tcrawley02:01:11

@johanatan: that looks handy! I'm not really an admin though, so I'll let @gjnoonan respond

tcrawley02:01:43

I would like to have that functionality for #C0H28NMAS and #C085AR8RE though

johanatan02:01:54

ya, i think it would be great to communicate with those luddites on IRC without having to actually use an IRC client

tcrawley02:01:46

my take is the opposite, I'd much rather use my irc client for everything :)

johanatan02:01:45

I like the async nature of Slack more-- history accumulates while you're offline and you can catch up later on. The whole UX is just much better IMO

johanatan02:01:04

I know you can set up these things for IRC too but it's too much work when Slack "just works"

tcrawley02:01:12

unless there's more history than slack allows us

johanatan02:01:31

ya, that does suck. But if you check in at least once or twice per week that doesn't happen

johanatan02:01:54

In really chatty rooms though it can become burdensome to read every message

johanatan02:01:17

Which is why smaller/specific topic rooms are generally more useful to me

if you could magically summon a programmer to work full time for a month on one open source clojure(script) library / plugin that you use, which would it be and why?

meow23:01:06

@atroche: completely dependent on who that programmer would be. Are you offering or is this completely hypothetical and off topic?

atroche23:01:50

pkobrien: i'm curious about the relationship between how heavily used a project is and how well it's maintained. perhaps a better way of phrasing the question would be: which library do you use that you wish were better maintained?

atroche23:01:20

also, not sure what you mean by off-topic — does #C03RZGPG1 have a set topic?
