To join the channels, you need an irc client. Wikipedia has a list of irc clients. For Linux I recommend HexChat or XChat, for Windows XChat or mIRC and for Mac OS I recommend XChat Azure. If you're already using Adium or Pidgin: IRC is integrated in it, so you can start using it immediately.
The following commands can be used inside your IRC client to quickly connect to a server and join the channel:
/connect chat.freenode.net /join #permanentfuture
#permanentfuture - The main channel
This is the main channel. We can talk here about Permanent Future, share new innovations, have q&a's, ask support for projects and in general: share inspiration and knowledge.
