IRC for Election Day

Monday, November 03, 2008 by Dave Winer.

We've had IRC for every major event of the 2008 election dating back to the first caucuses and primaries, and through the presidential and vice-presidential debates. Permalink to this paragraph

So it seems fitting that we have one final IRC chat for this season, as we share information, points of view, scandals and touching moments of the last day of this election -- hopefully with a happy ending, for as many of us as possible.  Permalink to this paragraph
