Google Talk, Dreamhost and Jabber

This is awesome, Google Talk has enabled XMPP Federation meaning that I can set up a Jabber server, and have it linked in to the Google Talk network. I can see some awesome benefits of this, not least of all the decentralizing of the instant messengers.

Companies will be able to run their own servers and control the communication past the firewall. People like me will be able to set up a server to serve their friends with more features that the old (lock-in) instant messenger networks won’t support, and best of all it’s open.

  1. I agree with Jon. Adding my Google Talk account to my Dreamhost Jabber account doesn’t work, and vice versa, and it seems like an authorization thing. If you got this to work, please let me know how, because I agree that it’d be awesome!

  2. Tired of obtaining low numbers of useless visitors to your website? Well i wish to share with you a brand new underground tactic that produces myself $900 daily on 100% AUTOPILOT. I could be here all day and going into detail but why dont you just check their site out? There is really a great video that explains everything.
