Freenode not "free" anymore?

I’ve just read this. Time to switch over to something else?
But then again, what about funding? Somebody has to fork over some dollars to keep the lights burning?

I never got into IRC despite actually being in the correct era with internet access… But every free IRC ive encountered pretty much is on freenode, particularly the FOSS community.

Maybe this will push Element/Matrix further into popularity?

There’s more than just freenode though. I use IRC for twitch chat too. It’s a nice little protocol that still has it’s uses I think

They moved to:
irc.libera.chat/6667
