Any reason not considering Slack?

Subject: Re: IRC and Gitter

Update: Since the W3C IRC has no NickServ we can't use sameroom.io<http://sameroom.io> which requires this :(

re: 'possibly host' : We can host it ourselves (I will see if Ripple can sponsor this) or we can use a hosted service like sameroom.io<http://sameroom.io>.
re cost:
- Sameroom.io = $49/month (5 channels),
- hosted = is cost of hosting and people to manage/setup

For option 2, what is the cost of managing another service? And why is it 'possibly host?'

Hi all,
I have done some investigating and have two options for us with regard to using Gitter but still offering IRC for those that prefer that channel.
Option 1: Switch to Gitter hosted IRC server
If you visit http://irc.gitter.im you'll see instructions for connecting to a secure IRC server using a unique, per-user server key.
Once you connect you'll be logged into an IRC channel for each Gitter room and use the same Nick as your github username.
Anything posted in either system is mirrored in the other.
- Secure IRC
- Tight integration with Gitter
- Need to switch to a new IRC server
- Lose the W3C IRC bots

Option 2: Setup a bridge between Gitter and W3C IRC
There are bots that can monitor both systems and mirror messages between them. We can use https://sameroom.io or host a bot ourselves.
- Keep same IRC server and channel

- Need to manage (and possibly host) yet another service
Anyone have any thoughts on these options?
