The Interactive Internet is quite near… the new facebook chat with XMPP…

After Google with GTalk (~ 180 million users) , now also Facebook (> 400 million users ) has switched its chat protocol to Jabber/XMPP ( pdf introduction). Now you need simply a generic xmpp client (like Adium, iChat, Miranda, Pidgin) and configure Facebook, Gtalk,..

XMPP is now the de facto the Standard protocol for Instant Messaging

We should not use anymore chat systems/operators that use proprietary standards like Skype, MS Messanger and Communicator, ..

We are next to have an Interactive Internet: like emails that can be sent out of a domain, we’ll be able to chat with people outside our domain: with my gmail account I’ll be able to chat with facebook people !!!!!!!!!!!!

The new facebook chat (chat.facebook.com) runs an OpenSource software witten in Erlang, ejabberd (commercial support at process-one.net). That will be also used by the next moodle 2.0.

If you are a Linux User, please share this news in INTERNET: it is about  user generated content AGAINST TRIDENT  and other CLOSED source vendors!!!

“It is important to notice that the vendor (Trident) doesn’t seem to want helping with open source development. Contacts with the vendor were tried during 2007 and 2008 in order to get their help by opening docs, via Linux Foundation NDA program, without success […] In brief, while we want to fix the driver issues, it is recommend to avoid buying any devices with tm5600/tm6000/tm6010 (and DRX demod) chips.”. See http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Trident_TM6000 for details.
