This article begins, "There is a killer on the loose under the covers of instant messaging... The killer app is presence." That may be, but what there isn't in instant messaging is interoperability - oh, I know, you can get Trillian, but true interoperability means letting me keep my ICQ and letting me still talk to MSN Messenger members. I think presence is a good thing, but like any good thing, too much of it is a bad thing. The mantra of this article is 'integrated presence' - but, keep in mind, this has been around a while and hasn;t really gained traction. So - a cautious endorsement of the general principles of this article, with the observation that another technological leap is required to make this really work. Via elearningpost.
