Simply Geek #18.2 – Instant Messengers (Part 2)

This week the usual suspects talk about Instant Messengers. They look at the good old days of the IRC, peek into the current underlying technologies and talk where how they expect IMs to go in the future. MSN, Skype, Yahoo, GChat, ICQ and even BBS, we’ve got all of them covered.

As it has happened often, our discussions went really long. So in this part you will hear the 2nd half the discussion. The 1st half is in Ep18.1 of Simply Geek, which you can download and listen to.

– NTT, Justin Lee, Farinelli (Wong Ren Hao), Timothy Lim.
