I’ve talked previously about Google Talk, and that up until now it was cut off from the rest of the public Jabber network. But a little birdie wrote to point me towards this announcement – Google Talk is now connected to the main Jabber network. Yay!
So all you Google Talk users can now add andrewjrallan @ jabber.org (and any other jabber contact to your Google Talk contacts list, and can join in with all the rest of us!
Good work Google – even if it did take a while! Who wants to bet which of the remaining IM networks will be the next to federate to the Jabber network?
