Cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little
That\’s basically all I have to say. Google has turned Gmail into something worthwhile (ok, I guess Gmail itself was pretty cool, but I\’ve never understood the infatuation everyone has with Webmail). But, now there\’s Google talk, with the requisite lower-case product name. For those who don\’t read all the small print, Google wrote a Jabber client and server, and anyone with a Gmail account now has a Jabber account.
Friggin\’ sweet! Of course, I don\’t have a Gmail account. I do, however, already have a Jabber account (email@example.com). So, get your Gmailin\’ ass on Jabber, and add me. Death to closed protocols!
