Jabber Instant Messaging User Base Surpasses ICQ

congratulations to everyone at the for announcing that there are, "...nearly 10 million end users of software based on the open Jabber/XMPP protocol.". there are, of course, some guestimates in the numbers, but all things considered it's a remarkable accomplishment.

i'm also happy to have discovered that the os x "nitro" jabber client is a lot more stable than the last time i tried it, or at least the development build i'm running is solid. although i like proteus because it's an "integrated" client for those times that i have to use other IM systems, its jabber client implementation is buggy and loses connections to the server.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
