Google Talk

Google is (supposedly) about to launch a new IM service. It looks like it will be using the Jabber protocol, which is an open protocol and way cool. It ties to your Gmail account, so if you don't have one, start pestering your geekie friends, who no doubt have scads of invitations to join Gmail.

You can use any Jabber compatible client, of which there are many. I just set up with GAIM using the following instructions.

Have fun!
