I don't _do_ IRC but that's a seperate problem.

The problem we had on the 'www' list for the longest time was there were a
whole lot of people signed up but no one actually answering mail to 
'webmaster' because everyone thought someone else was doing it.

project based stuff (bumper stickers, system bezels) is one thing; but 
there are ongoing recurrent activities that one person needs to be in
charge of. (one person per recurring activity).  For example: "doing
press releases" or "media relations" or "conference organization", etc.

So get started. :)
