For those of us who have not yet cracked the technique of finding clients via IRC, could you please share the name of a few channels where you could network and find clients?

Hang out in the channels associated with languages where you have expertise. If you're a php expert, contribute technical expertise in ##php and socialize in #phpc. And so forth. There's a list of channels here: http://irc.netsplit.de/channels/?net=freenode

My book (link in profile) offers a free chapter on finding clients if you sign up for the mailing list. IRC is discussed in depth.
