Meebo

Posted in Technology, Wordpress by microwavebiscuit on March 22, 2007

I heard about Meebo from a couple of different sources. Meebo is an online IM aggregator, meaning you can use it to connect to multiple IM systems like Yahoo, AIM, MSN, Google, etc. While there are several IM clients available for both Linux and Windows that do this, the nice thing about it is that you can sign on from any PC in one step and connect to all of your IM clients. There is also a WordPress widget available that you can enable on your blog so that visitors to your blog can IM you when you are online. I have set it up here but I’m not sure if I’ll keep it. We’ll see. The other cool thing about it is that you can “detach” it from your browser window (it basically creates a pop-up I guess) and give it the feel of a real IM client. The downside for me is that when I’m attached to my company’s VPN it won’t seem to connect. I’m guessing that it’s somehow filtered out by my company’s proxy or something.

Here’s a couple of pics:
