Freenode is an IRC network that has all of the Ubuntu IRC channels.
IRC is a live group chat that we use to chat with other people, hold
meetings, and discuss various projects.

Instructions for using Pidgin to access the Ubuntu IRC channels can be
found on the wiki . When it talks about joining a channel (the
guide has you join #ubuntu), you can join #ubuntu-chicago instead to
meet up and chat with other Ubuntu users living in or around Chicago.
