Tau Labs has an active irc channel, #taulabs on irc.freenode.net. Anyone is welcome to join us there at any time with questions, comments, or just to lurk and listen.

In addition, there is an invitation-only room, #taulabs-dev. This is a quieter room away from the hubbub of the main #taulabs room. Access is given based on the following rules:
