For no particular reason, I have been using instant messenger for about a year. I used it quite a bit when I worked fulltime for this company, because our developers were spread all over the globe. Since then, I’ve pretty much ignored it. Which is odd, because you’d think that, working from home, I’d crave more social interaction.
Regardless, I’ve downloaded Trillian and set myself up. Currently, I’m only configured with my MSN account. Should I bother with any of the other IM flavours–AIM, Yahoo, IRC, ICQ? I’m familiar with all of them, but have little sense of which is most popular. What do the Apple
snobs users employ?
On MSN, I’m firstname.lastname@example.org (spam all you want, mofos, I never used that badboy). If you’re a friend, family or articulate stranger, feel free to add me and we’ll, you know, socialize.
