Creating a channels is easy: just join the channel name.  If the  
channel exists, you'll be able to join it.  If it does not exist, the  
channel will be created on the fly.  For example, if you run  
Mozilla's Chatzilla, click on this link:


Or in your favorite chat client:

   /server freenode
   /join #bioconductor

Some IM clients also support IRC (e.g. GAIM, Kopete).  I'm on the  
#bioconductor channel now, if anyone wants to drop in and say hello.

The question is, is there enough interest to make it worthwhile  
registering and maintaining the channel?
