AIMing higher

on Jan.08, 2009, under Technology

I’ve decided to drop my use of AIM, and switch to Jabber/XMPP exclusively, on the arbitrary date of 2/17/09.  I might even setup a work account if there’s any interest.  Despite AIM being pretty darn stable, and not as evil as before (no need for the AIM binary lately on non AOL clients), I’m not a big fan of the lack of decent privacy features (at least, that I know of), and open protocols/systems are always nicer.  So, if you have any interest in IM’ing me ever after 2/17, make sure you’re XMPP-enabled.

    You could use they slightly-less-arbitrary Open Discussion Day on May 19th, but that’s farther away.

    You should tell your friends about gtalk; people might be a little more willing to choose something they already know about.

    I actually picked 2/17 as it’s “DTV” day. Nice having the TV reminding you constantly of something you need to do.
