From Jargon File (4.2.0, 31 JAN 2000) [jargon]:
   IRC /I-R-C/ n.   [Internet Relay Chat] A worldwide "party line"
   network that allows one to converse with others in real time.   IRC
   is structured as a network of Internet servers, each of which
   accepts connections from client programs, one per user.   The IRC
   community and the {Usenet} and {MUD} communities overlap to some
   extent, including both hackers and regular folks who have discovered
   the wonders of computer networks.   Some Usenet jargon has been
   adopted on IRC, as have some conventions such as {emoticon}s.   There
   is also a vigorous native jargon, represented in this lexicon by
   entries marked `[IRC]'.   See also {talk mode}.

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
      {Internet Relay Chat}
