    I hopped online to the jabber server before they opened the website... they sent a global message out when it went public "The broken link has been fixed. Thanks for being out first users!" or something to that extent. Was pretty cool.

    Been using it with iChat... anxious for Google to release OSX and Linux clients. Also, I hope they install some transports on it, so I can use AIM/MSN/Yahoo through it.

    It's about time for bed but I'm going to wait until Google brushes my teeth for me and tucks me into bed. I mean, they do everything else...



    I must be the only person in the world without a Gmail account...

    I don't have one because the extra space means nothing to me and any free e-mail account makes you sound like a l33t h4><0r.
    Once I thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.

    The social networking aspect of aquiring a Gmail account seems to lend it more credibility than say, a hotmail or yahoo account.

    Very happy to see this happening even though I was working on implementing a chat system into gmail. Oh well, I'm sure they've done a better job than I would have.

    They've had Hello for a lot longer, but Talk seems to be more generalized.

    That's only fashion though, and at such, arbitrary - the same could become true of any provider at any point in time.

    So this Google messenger - is it going to scan through messages and generate advertising based on keywords from it ...
