Spent a long day Thursday at the Googleplex discussing various technical matters. We're jazzed to have Google extending the AIM network, and we expect our collaboration on engineering will result in great things for our users. It's quite fun to be able to share experiences with people who have had to solve the same technical problems, and exciting to think about what could be accomplished if we can work together.
didn't get to meet Larry or Sergey, but we did get a cool mini-tour
where we saw, among other things, the Google "globe" plotting where all
the Google search queries on the Earth are coming from. It would be way cool
to do the same thing for all of our AIM traffic...
