Whats is the theme and purpose of this IRC Network?
For us, the concept of sustainability is to increase economic efficiency with social equity in the distribution of the means to add value in preserving and sustaining the environment. Sustainable development must be taken seriously, we want to meet the maximum needs of the present without compromising the society, the economy and future environment. It is in this context that this IRC network borns, which has been set up as a platform for contact between sustainable design, technology and people towards a more efficient, ecological and fair planet.
Why another IRC network?
There is no irc network specifically dedicated to sustainable design, technology research and automation. While there are many IRC networks, some with thousands of users, none follow a clear philosophy on the urgent need to promote, disseminate and contact man, nature and machine.
Why return to IRC?
IRC has been around for many years and never died. Networks like "freenode" clearly show the potential that IRC still has to give. The irc technology allows certain functions to other means of communication who have difficulty to main. Take skype example, teamspeak or even facebook, the capabilities of your computer start to become more limited. This happens because most new technologies charge the system. While Skype and other programs of online communication platforms are proprietary, IRC is a free protocol that works on any device or any operating system.
Am i gonna find anything new?
Several. The first novelty of our irc network is the bounce service that allows not to miss your conversations even when no internet connection is there. On facebook or skype, you can consult the previous conversation, and even receive offline messages too. The future irc does exactly the same thing but with twice privacy. The other novelty in our IRC network is the venus AI bot that allows you to search, automate processes, schedule tasks or contacts. None of your current communication systems allow this functionality.
Is it a safe place for i use to comunicate?
Probably safer than any other forms of communication used currently. The irc network uses SSL for encryption of traffic between your device and the server. Furthermore its activity on the network such as private conversations are not stored on our servers, unlike other means of communication like gmail, facebook, or even SMS messages.
