Why are all #blender channels always empty?

There is never anyone on any of the IRC channels.

Is there a secret chatroom/channel where everyone hangs out at?

2010 is almost over, can we have a chatroom/channel where you can share what you’re working on (screenshare) and show pics and exchange .blend files?

btw don’t a lot of programs do this already including skype?

I’m gonna suggest this to Andrew, he makes sh*t happen.

I think you want to use irc.freenode.net, the #blender channel.
