Probably using IRC and one of the clients that support IRC as an alternate chat channel would be the most
Phoenix is one that supports IRC, I don't know if Imprudence does. With that we can use free existing
servers though so it shouldn't take any infrastructure builds. Just would need a channel registered for each of
us to make accounts.
IRC is more reliable than the Linden Labs chat and is the reason some of the clients have an IRC client built in.
