I've set up a nationwide IRC channel specifically targeted for either
some Linux communities that don't have that many people in their own
channel, those who don't have an IRC channel, or for places where there
is no LUG, but individual still would feel happy to get a channel to
discuss Linux, Open Source and China. This of course doesn't stop you
from using your local own channel if you see a need for it.
So you can all come and join Linux users on freenode under #chinalug
using your preferred IRC client or on the current web based interface at
http://www.chinalug.org/ (which might be slow in the current Internet
Of course spread the word and tell your friends.
