What does BIC stand for in online chat?

Butt in chair

Chatters sometimes use BIC to say they have their "butt in chair." This means the user is at their keyboard and ready to chat.

Alternatively, someone you're chatting with may use BIC to tell you to get your butt in your chair. (E.g. "Get your BIC so we can talk!") This person's tired of waiting around for you, so you'd better get back to your chat ASAP.


Hey, did you leave?
No, I didn't leave. I'm still here with BIC

TMW you don't quite get BIC
