I have set up a Slack bot using some software[1] that relays messages
between a slack channel and an IRC channel. It is listening in #osm on
OFTC and the #irc slack channel in Steve's team.

I love my irssi+screen IRC setup however it kind of breaks down when
it comes to a phone-friendly interface. So I may use this slack
channel to hop on IRC from my phone sometimes.

We'll see how it goes. It hasn't seen too much traffic yet.
