The funnier number is the 300+ in irc.

That made me curious about Slack. The first search result I found for "Perl 6 Slack" shows 68 people in 11 channels, while the first search result not about writing bots for "Python programming Slack" shows 14,557 members.

Now there's an obvious difference between "number of people in channels" and "number of members of a community", but I'm not sure that IRC is skating to where the puck is here.

    I cannot respond in any meaningful way to this, as I don't know what 'Slack' is?

    And having re-read your post several times, I'm still unsure whether it is in support or contrary to my post?


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority". The enemy of (IT) success is complexity.
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice. Suck that fhit

      Slack's a proprietary chat system a lot like IRC but with a graphical interface that's made it more popular with less technical folks as well as people who didn't grow up with IRC.

      I'm generally agreeing with you here.
