As previously discussed, ColdFusion Blackstone is expected to feature an event gateway that will allow ColdFusion to respond to requests from sources other than HTTP. Sean Corfield has been playing with this feature extensively, and has blogged some details of his IRC gateway which allows Blackstone to log on to an IRC server as a bot and respond to IRC messages. See http://www.corfield.org/blog/past/2004_07.html#000525.
