For those geeks who don’t know, Google Talk is live, and it works with GAIM, which is my favorite Linux jack-of-all-chats client. Actually, Google Talk uses the Free Jabber protocol, which seems to be a very good choice. I’ve known about Jabber for years, and it is supposed to be very cool, but I haven’t yet had a chance to try it.
You need a a GMail account to use this. And gmail is by invitation only, but if you need a gmail account, let me know. I have several invites left I’d happily pass on.
My Google username is freakwitch, so you should be able to figure out how to contact me by email or google talk from that.
