This is one of those stories that almost makes me teary eyed.  Being an old Internet fool, can make some of sentimental when seeing the Net's ideals being somewhat lived up to.  What's even more interesting about this, is that if the rumors about Microsoft and AOL tieing up hold true, this segragated IM non-sense will go the way of the horse & buggy.  It's nice to see that the spirit of the Internet (standard protocols to connect us all) alive and well, though I'm sure there's a nice profit motive that has emerged to make this timely announcement a reality.

Check out the announcement.
