Marxist-Leninist: Discussion Organization of Revolutionary Science
(L:) [!!] might be interesting to contact them, to publish some of CHT/T stuff?
The Hampton Institute (HI) is a proletarian think tank that was founded by Colin Jenkins in 2013. In contrast to traditional (bourgeois) think tanks, the HI is a virtual organization that does not have a physical location and does not seek to provide specific policy analysis for capitalist entities such as corporations and mainstream political parties. For organizational purposes, its official location is in Albany, NY with a main address located nearby in Clifton Park, NY. Current chairpersons and contributors are located throughout the United States and worldwide. 
The HI was founded with the purpose of giving a platform to everyday, working-class people to theorize, comment, analyze, and discuss matters that exist outside the confines of our daily lives, yet greatly impact them us a daily basis. The organization is named after Black Panther Chairman, Fred Hampton Sr., and also cites inspiration from Italian Marxist theorist, Antonio Gramsci, and educator and philosopher, Paulo Freire. In order to remain consistent with our working-class billing, we seek "organic intellectuals" as opposed to traditional intellectuals and scholars. The HI is run as a collective, cooperative, and non-hierarchical organization. We are independent and without ties to special interests. 
The HI operates a publishing wing (Hampton Institute Press), a blog (The HI blog), and a bi-monthly podcast (A Different Lens). The organization also maintains a presence on social media, including Facebook (The Hampton Institute) and Twitter (@HamptonThink). The HI acquired 501 (c) (3) non-profit status in December of 2016 for the purpose of accepting donations and redistributing them through our networks.

depends on what you're interested on. I know Freenode from long ago so my information might be outdated, but for learning languages there used to be ##deutsch, ##francais and ##english at least. FOSS software packages? used to be that almost everything had a channel on freenode.I'm currently on [01:15] [Freenode] *** * channels:  #SeaMonkey #nextcloud #nodemcu #openwrt #openscad #hackerspaces #card10badge          +#BalCCon #spacemacs #midori #notion #lima #panfrost #emacs #duangle #hackzogtumCoburg

I also recommend #netbsd, #chicken and #panfrost, they're friendly
OFTC also has interesting tech channels, but IRC is very tech centric in general IMO
matrix isn't? I haven't looked at it yet unfortunately

"corporate version of HACC, great communications"

David Potocnik It's been a long time for me. My main relevant experience was being on the Austrian economics Yahoogroup when I was writing Mutualist Political Economy, and sharpening my arguments about marginalism against economics professors. I'm on a listserv for NAASN, an anarchist scholars group, but it's pretty sporadically active and doesn't have much in the way of theory debates.

'Slutty Urbanism is a collective of promiscuous urbanists that was first birthed on a black sofa in Amsterdam during 2018. The urban scholars and activists involved are spread across four countries engaged in politics equal parts militant, absurdist, and filthy. A cyborg creature, Slutty Urbanism is fertilised with gender theory, digital feminism, urban sociology, and histories of urban planning that allow it to live in even the darkest of spaces and times. Slutty Urbanism wants to do away with the violent perversions of digital capitalism’s uneven urban development and binary formulations, while still caring for the transgressive potential of zeros and ones. Slutty Urbanism imagines cultivating more pleasurable and just perversions within more pleasurable and just socioeconomic arrangements."
(maybe this should be in architecture/urbanism related pad?)
