Maybe I just have the wrong definition of accessibility.
To me IRC is far more accessible than any of the proprietary services, because it's an open protocol. It allows me to pick the client that is most accessible _to me_.
And your needs may be different than mine.
Don't want users having to install their own client? Host a matrix/thelounge like service, which gives you the best of both worlds.
You can use your own client or this service then. How does it get any more accessible than that?
A quick shout to @SpindleyQ: dude I really miss your podcast!
Rumor has it that Chris Chibnal will be stepping down as showrunner of Doctor Who in 2020, along with Jodie Whittaker.

In case you don't know this yet: Microsoft has been very OSS friendly since Nadella took over the CEO position.
Other than modern projects, they've also opened part of their historical archives.
For instance, among other things you can find the source code of MS-DOS 1.25 and 2.00 on GitHub: https://github.com/Microsoft/MS-DOS
Even after all these years things like this do retain an important technical value as well as an immense historical importance.
So, after thinking about the TeamViewer bullish request, I've decided not to honor it.
I'm not going to indulge unreasonable requests for personal data just because they have presumption of guilt toward their users.
They're barking up the wrong tree and I'm not gonna support them in this.
I would rather stop using their (excellent) product.
If the community spent time and effort in writing a native, efficient and reliable general purpose editor instead of relying on JS-backed crap like Atom.
Visual Studio Code, for instance, is an amazing editor and provides a great out-of-box experience for developers but the reliance on a JS runtime makes it needlessly bloated.
