IRC has only been around since 1993, 13 years ago.  It became quite
popular during the Gulf War, when we were all in one or two channels,
getting reports from the front line from the reporters directly.  It
was quite freaky.  I used to IRC a lot back then, but friends and
family got so concerned they banned me from it, so I've used it very
little since.  Strangely, I don't think the same concerns would be
raised these days.
