IRC Channels

The IRC channel can be an excellent place to learn more about Haskell, and to just keep in the loop on new things in the Haskell world. Many new developments in the Haskell world first appear on the irc channel.

Point your irc client to chat.freenode.net and then join the #haskell channel.

Alternately, you can try http://java.freenode.net/ or http://webchat.freenode.net/ which connects inside the browser.
