====What is Zoia?====
Zoia is the Code4Lib [ IRC (Internet-relay-chat) bot].
====Where did it get its name?====
It was named after the famous librarian, [ Zoia Horn], who is considered to be the first librarian ever to be jailed for refusing to divulge information that violated her belief in intellectual freedom.
====What does it do?====
The Zoia bot provides commentary, insight, support and diversions to participants on the Code4LIB IRC channel.
Documentation is sparse, incomplete, outdated, and occasionally only in the code of the bot's plugins themselves.
Unless, that is, you want everyone to watch you experimenting.
====Registering with Zoia====
Certain commands (for instance, ''tweet'') will only work if you have registered your IRC nickname with Zoia.
To do that, first send Zoia a '''Register''' command:
zoia: MrDys: kano's fatality: Hold BL,B,B,LP
