AIM wasn’t working for one of my friends, and as a workaround (until I could look at her laptop), I directed her to Meebo. It must’ve been more than three weeks ago, but she mentioned it last night when we went out to eat with a few people.
“Meebo? What’s that?”
“You know, the website where I could use AIM without installing it? I was reading the blog the other day. They’re meeting at Borders, but that’s in San Francisco, so I can’t really go.” (paraphrased)
Um, whoa, crazy! (FYI: Meebo isn’t the only web-based IM client.)
