|What's wrong with IM?
||[Apr. 2nd, 2007|02:55 am]
Instant messaging is incredibly convenient -- unlike email, it's immediate, and unlike phone calls, you can ignore a message if you're busy. But yet I find myself talking to only a dozen or so people by IM with any regularity, in spite of the fact that I'm almost always signed on and between my various accounts, I have like 150 people on my friend lists. Most of my friends just never seem to sign on.
In particular, my 60-or-so mutual LJ friends, why are you not using your LJ Talk service?
(Well, other than the 2 or 3 of you that do.) It's free, it's open and interoperable
, and it auto-imports your friends list. What more could you ask for?
