I have been using IM since 1995/1996 starting with “procomm plus” then ICQ (my number is in the first 600,000)
Now there are multiple clients, windows live, yahoo, aim, gtalk, facebook, myspace, icq, and more. Take all the IM programs, and the multi clients, trillian, digsby, pidgen. meebo, etc.; I have used them all. Nothing seems good enough to me. Adium on the mac is the best I have used so far.
What I am trying to do now is consolidate. I am going to try to just use google talk with my firstname.lastname@example.org account and will see how that goes. I will still keep my other accounts but probably won’t sign in as often. This is an experiment so we will see how it turns out.
Feel free to add me and chat/IM !!
