Right. The Access Grid is not particularly accessible. It's a high-tech
high-cost solution reserved to some universities and some research

IRC, on the other hand, is a low-bandwidth protocol invented in 1988,
standardized by IETF, and supported by hundreds of programs on many OSes
and which can run on a 9600 bps modem if that's all one has.

Text-based meetings also have several advantages over audio-based
meetings, such that several conversations can happen at once and so it's
easy to take your time saying something without disturbing anyone. With
text, no-one is fighting for the microphone.
