This is just the latest in the IM (Instant Messaging) battle that is brewing. One focus of the articles talks about developing standards for IM communication. I keep wondering to myself... Can IRC (Internet Relay Chat) be adapted to IM or IRC extended?

It really seems to be a shame to waste 20 or so years of a well defined protocol.

Just a thought...
