IRC is dead, long live IRC.
IRC (Internet Relay Chat) has been around since 1988, which makes it ancient in Internet terms.
And although it’s still used by hundreds of thousands of users around the world, IRC has seen a dramatic downturn in usage.
We have talked to the creator of IRC, and others, about why the once so widely used technology has seemingly fallen out of favor with so many users.
We connected with Jarkko Oikarinen, the creator of IRC, who works at Google in Sweden, and he told us the story of how IRC was born.
