AIM Chat Rooms

"Text mode conferencing is one of the oldest forms of communications on the internet. You commonly know this as participating in a "chat room."

This form of communication has lasted as long has for three very good reasons:

1. It requires the least possible bandwidth necessary in order to do it. You don’t get any smaller in bandwidth usage than plain text.
2. Even if you have the slowest/crappiest internet connection, you can still participate in text chat. Heck, it even works on dialup.
3. It’s the easiest to use compared to any other mode of conferencing on the internet..."

Windows Live Web Messenger Screenshot

Microsoft Singapore have recently released their web-based Messenger. This new version is built on top of the Messenger Library.

You don't need to install anything. You just need a web-browser and a Windows Live account to chat with your contacs.

This version is not the one included in Hotmail, so it's totally independent of the Microsoft's mail service.

The new Windows Live Messenger works from any country but has only been released for Singapore users. This can be some marketing campaign targeted exclusively to that territory, or Microsoft is gradually introducing this new version of its web-messenger in different places.

Joom is a collaborative brainstorming tool, similar to a group chat plus topics.

Joom is very simple to use. You only need to install the joom client, which runs on any computer with a Java Virtual Machine and a gmail account (jabber account). Although you'll need Joom to create the brainstorming session, you are not required to use it to join an existing session - you can just use gtalk's group chat.

Joom Features:

1. Session participants - These users can send (broadcast) messages, see all exchanged messages and invite other participants
2. Contacts list (Roster) - This is the contact list of the current user (similar to the contact list of gtalk). You can invite users to the session by double-clicking their id.
3. Active topic - You can only have, at most, one active topic. This works like a filter over the whole message stream - only those with a certain #hashtag appear in the corresponding topic box. To select an active topic, just expand that box.
4. Inactive topic - Even though you can't see the messages in inactive topics, joom will show you how much conversation you maybe missing through a kind of unread count number.
5. Discussion history - Here goes the whole chat history, regardless of the topic.
6. Message input box - This is where you type your messages to the group. You can append an #hashtag to associate the message with a topic. If you have an active topic, the hashtag is automatically appended.
