IRC chat room for type designers?

Hi there,

I miss the old Typophile's chat room (although it used to crash a lot). Wouldn't it be good to create an IRC chat room with type design as a topic? Anyone interested?

This has come up before. I suppose if you just went onto freenode and used typophile for the channel, and convinced enough people to join. But you may be best off scheduling a time and date. Typophiles tend to be rather busy these days... Cutting types and letterpressing... Maybe using fontforge or doing some daily job. IRC just doesn't fit in so easily...

But, yes, I would be interested. I personally haven't met anyone else who does type.

There are a lot of Typophile peeps on Google+. Its probably easy to arrange that sort of thing there, plus video chat (hangouts).

Should I open also a profile in Google+? Another social network... ouch.
I still think IRC chat have some advantages, but it is true that for some people IRC is out of fashion (and you have to install special software).

There is ##font on Freenode, but that is probably oriented more towards users than designers. What is the story with the G+ community?
