Many of the CrisisCamp developers are used to "hanging out" in an IRC Chatroom. You are welcome to join us . Come say hi, see if any of us can help you answer a question, or just lurk and listen to our day-to-day challenges.
#CrisisCommons IRC channel
This is the IRC channel on
irc://freenode/crisiscommons everyone should feel encouraged to visit, and at least lurk for a little while.
If you are unable (or unwilling ;-)) to use the IRC protocol (some establishments block it) try the HTTP client
