|SixApart joins the Jabber world
||[Jun. 28th, 2006|07:22 pm]
The SixApart employee Jabber server now has server-to-server enabled, so all @sixapart.com email addresses are also valid Jabber JIDs and publicly-reachable from GTalk, jabber.org, etc. And vice versa.
I have no hope for AIM or MSN speaking Jabber (or any open federation protocol) anytime soon, but what about Yahoo? They're trying really hard lately to be open. Zawodny?

welcome to the party :-)
What I'd love to see on lj:
Jabber pings when a friend posts securely.
Jabber delivery of comment notification.
Make it so!

Yup. Roll-out begins tomorrow and will continue over next few weeks. Don't worry, g, we're on it.
"I have no hope for AIM or MSN speaking Jabber (or any open federation protocol) anytime soon [...]"
I don't want to violate any confidentiality agreements, so lets just say that AIM may allegedly speak XMPP very soon. And, if I have any say in the matter, it may even be via DJabberd.

Mention "djabberd" or something I'm involved with to make sure email gets through.
This is public knowlege. AOL and Google are bed buddies. I'm sure Google is paying for the privilege of federating. Gtalk has a miserably small subscriber base. This is a way for them to buy more subscribers.

Hmm, since you're email@example.com - we should look into a user bonding plugin where you can also be logged in as firstname.lastname@example.org (or whatever your login is there) and djabberd will automatically transpose conversations between the two logins.
(From Matt Sergeant, but can't remember my LJ login :-))

Re: Username bonding
I figured HTTP-style redirection (both temporary and permanent) would be a good solution to this, since then the remote client is “in the loop” and it avoids that pesky triangle routing and all of the pain of rewriting the from address on responses. I notice there's a JEP about this (JEP-0051, I think) but it seems to try to solve too many problems and has been largely abandoned.
On the other hand, having the remote client aware of what's going on means you can't hide a personal address behind a work address, etc.

What OS do you use on your laptop? Desktop?
If memory serves it's some kind of unix? I forget though. If it is what wm do you use?
I'm wanting to move to unix desktop. Rather tired of windows nonsense. Only issue is need to run some poker clients.... probably have to use a vm to do it.

I'll keep pushing...
It's a heavy rock and a tall hill.
But, yeah, we should get in the Jabber game one of these days.

Re: I'll keep pushing...
Thanks. I'm rooting for you. :-)
I have heard two things:
1) Yahoo & MSN have some sort of plan to integrate their networks.
2) Google and AIM also have an agreement. GTalk is already Jabber, does this mean that AIM could become Jabber (probably not, but one can hope).
