  From  Jargon  File  (4.2.3,  23  NOV  2000)  [jargon]: 
 
  IRC  /I-R-C/  n.  [Internet  Relay  Chat]  A  worldwide  "party  line" 
  network  that  allows  one  to  converse  with  others  in  real  time.  IRC  is 
  structured  as  a  network  of  Internet  servers,  each  of  which  accepts 
  connections  from  client  programs,  one  per  user.  The  IRC  community  and 
  the  {Usenet}  and  {MUD}  communities  overlap  to  some  extent,  including 
  both  hackers  and  regular  folks  who  have  discovered  the  wonders  of 
  computer  networks.  Some  Usenet  jargon  has  been  adopted  on  IRC,  as 
  have  some  conventions  such  as  {emoticon}s.  There  is  also  a  vigorous 
  native  jargon,  represented  in  this  lexicon  by  entries  marked  `[IRC]'. 
  See  also  {talk  mode}.
