A. JAMBOREE ON THE IRC (JOTIRC or JOTI)

IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat.  IRC is devoted to just "type-talking"
with other users around the world.  You join what they call a channel
(similar to AOL's rooms, if you're familiar) and type words which appear on
the channel.  Everyone on that channel receives your words and can respond.
The software needed is basically a client.  Clients can be obtained from many
ftp sites.  See Scott Yanoff's "Internet Services" list on
alt.internet.services for public IRC clients, or find out if your own system
has the client installed by typing the following from your UNIX prompt:

    irc
    /join #Scouting

For more information on IRC, anonymous FTP to:

Jamboree on the Internet will be held on the same weekend as JOTA. JOTA 
and JOTI should be conducted together when possible. For questions on the 
Jamboree on the Internet send E-mail to:JOTI@world.scout.org
or go to: http://www.scout.org
