We’ll post some thoughts and our results in about a week or so…
Forgive me if this is old news. It appears the first bloggers started writing about it four days ago. It’s news to me, though. The long awaited breakdown of barriers between IM clients appears to have come and gone without much of a peep. The latest build of Yahoo Messenger and Windows Live Messenger (MSN) have been released and with them, the interoperabilty wall has fallen.
I’m not really a Yahoo or Windows Live Messenger user. I have accounts for both and used MSN much more in the past but for now, I’m a Skype man. Nonetheless, the fact that Yahoo Messenger and WLM both work together now is somewhat of a coup for interactive collaboration fans everywhere.
I have not really used the interoperability much so welcome feedback on the feature is encouraged in the comments.
The top blog (by traffic) on WordPress.com is written by Robert Scoble (who was, incidentally, just interviewed by the San Jose Mercury News). But there are 300,000 other blogs hosted on the service as well, generating about 1.6 million daily page views and 14.2 million unique monthly visitors. These numbers have doubled since May, when they had just 800,000 daily page views and 7.3 million uniques. 40% of traffic to the site is non-U.S.
We’re glad to see WordPress and its parent company Automattic continue to rock and roll…
I’m not sure that Paul Scrivens and I have ever agreed on much of anything – until I read his post at Wisdump about Six Apart’s release of Movable Type 3.3.
Wisdump was actually the first place I saw any news about the Movable Type release until much later, when I finally saw Six Apart’s blog post about the release.
