Hi fellow SF devs and admins-
I have worked with some other folks to get a Salesforce chat room going on IRC. Think of it as a realtime user group. You can access it on Freenode by joining the #salesforce channel.
If you're new to IRC, I personally recommend mIRC (www.mirc.com). Various programs can be used to access IRC for any OS you may be using. Hope to have you as a part of our community!
Due to too many mis-posted threads here, I'm going to ask for bona-fide announcments that you precede your title with a categorization: "Webinar:", "Product Release: ", "Networking: " or "Event: ". E.g., "Webinar: Build data-rich websites with Siteforce".
If you have another category of announcement that should be included email me and let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'm trying to cut down on the misposts to Announcements.
IF YOU POST WITHOUT AN ANNOUNCEMENT CATEGORY I WILL DELETE YOUR POSTING. Moderators are spending too much time moving threads around.
Hey community pals,
We conferred about this and decided to open up the Announcements board to the entire community. To be clear, please only post your announcements that would be of interest to the Developer Force community, such as developer-focused events and product launches.
Please don't abuse the privilege and only post items of interest. Thank you!
Related to an earlier request for an IRC channel, I'm going to try to start one. I welcome any/all to join on #salesforce-dev, on the irc.freenode.net server. Join us, idle, help us build the live community!

It would be great if word of the IRC support channel was spread further, and if others would join/idle if the channel were empty. Ideally, SF developer staff might like to join and converse with individuals seeking support although it happens here in the forums, additional interaction might be great.
