Now you made me think...

IRC is good to not feel alone and completely
disconnected from the human race, like to have
it output/scroll in the background while not
really caring what it says most of the time.

IRC is good for the sake of itself, and
technology, like the ham/radio amateurs of past
decades, calling each other around the globe
just to speak about the technology that made it
possible and pretty much that's it.

IRC is good for very quick questions on
technology, questions that you know some guy
can answer instantly, questions about problems
that will not require/spur any discussion with
different options and so on (for such
questions, Gmane/Usenet/mailing lists are much
better than IRC IMO).
