Mozilla Replacing IRC Internally

Mike Hoye on his blog exple.tive.org:

In the next small number of months, Mozilla intends to deprecate IRC as our primary synchronous-text communications platform, stand up a replacement and decommission irc.mozilla.org soon afterwards. I’m charged with leading that process on behalf of the organization.

It’s not going to be an easy job, and if he shares even the highlights, we can all learn from it.
