I know @davidw set up #bootstrappers before on Freenode, but nobody’s there. I’ve registered #strappers and will check in on the latest all the time. Join me if you IRC!
I’m not a fan of slack (I’m sure it’s fine, but I like more open stuff), and don’t manage to get into the forums much, so that’s why I’m sticking to IRC for now…
Use the webclient if you’re not set up any other way yet: https://webchat.freenode.net
