When I entered OSGeo, a lot of tech talk was carried out on the
#telascience IRC channel. That's perfect and I can use IRC from a
remote SSH session in a terminal window.  Apparently a lot of it has
moved elsewhere, maybe to a different IRC channel - I don't know.

Now people are talking about Slack or Gitter -  and I wonder wether I'm
just being too old-style.  To be honest, I really don't understand the
net benefit, can someone please explain to me ....  or do people use
these new communication channels just because they can ?

 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
