Zoom & IRC Logistics

Zoom link, numbers, and iCal files (requires W3C login and permission)

When you join the teleconference, put in IRC: "Present+ [YourName]"

We use IRC during the teleconference to take minutes, share links, indicate support or not for proposals, etc. You can join IRC through a web browser or IRC client:

  • Information on using W3C IRC from a browser is here: IRC
  • Most people download an IRC client
    To join the LVTF/CG IRC:
    • Server Address:
    • Port: 6667, 6665, 21 (choose one)
    • Channel: #lvtf

IRC non-minute comments:

  • By default, what you type in IRC shows up in the minutes.
  • To type something that you do not want recorded in the minutes, preface it with:
    For example:
    /me apologizes for the construction noise in the background
    It will show up in IRC with an asterisk and will not be in the minutes:
    * shawn apologizes for the construction noise in the background
