Always lovely to see things go in the right direction

A brief work burble: AIM has just announced the OpenAIM 2.0 release, and it is *seriously* good news for CommYou. They've removed most of the restrictions on applications interacting with AIM, and they've released new libraries, including a Java library. And they officially are no longer worrying about "multi-headed" clients that talk to other IM systems, which was the only reason I could see why they might not love CommYou.

The implication is that I've kicked up the priority of the CommYou/AIM integration. In practice, this means you'll be able to get notifications about new conversations starting via IM, and you'll be able to specify higher-priority conversations that you want to participate in via IM. I was expecting this to be a hard problem, so I was going to put it off until fairly late, but I think I'm going to try to get it in by the first beta. (Probably 2-3 months from now.) It'll take some tuning to get it to the point where it's not annoying, but I think it's going to be seriously useful once the right levers are in place.

Burble, burble. The project continues to be so big it's a bit intimidating, but things continue to fall into place very nicely. First pre-alpha should be available for friends to poke at a little in a few weeks, and then I think it'll be easier to understand where I'm going with all this...
